Lake Fuschl - Salzkammergut

Fuschl am See Salzburg

The gate to the Salzkammergut.

The emerald-green Lake Fuschl is to be found to the east of Salzburg and is part of the Salzkammergut. It is owned by the Forest Commission of Austria. In the Province of Salzburg and also the Salzkammergut, Lake Fuschl is the clearest and cleanest of the lakes. In fact it has drinking water quality!

The lake flows via the Fuschler A che stream into Lake Mondsee and further via the Attersee, to the Ager and Traun into the Danube.

During the regein of the Archbishops of Salzburg who used Schloss Fuschl as their hunting lodge, the lake was known as the " courts kitchen". This meant that the complete catch from the lake landed on the Archbishops table - proof enough of the goof quality of the fish from the crystal waters of Lake Fuschl.
