This is a small mountain lake under nature protection and it is characterized by low temperatures and very clear water with drinking-water quality. These are ideal conditions for numerous fish. The highest lake of the Salzkammergut region and its surroundings are probably one of the most popular places to take pictures. Already the traveler and natural scientist Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt has been impressed by lake Gosausee, which is situated at the end of the valley in front of the giant rocks and faces of the Dachstein mountain range and he called the lake "the eye of God".
