Places of happiness: Gosau Lacke
Relax and enjoy
There are many “Glücksplätze” (places of happiness) in the Salzkammergut region, but the little body of water situated between the front and rear Gosau lakes, called “Gosaulacke” is certainly one of the most beautiful energetic places in Gosau – especially in autumn. The small pool of water is shallow, and only experiences a very small permanent inflow from the Launigg karst spring and the small Brandsee. But when the snow melts or after heavy rains the Gosaulacke can be filled by the overflowing Hinterer Gosausee and then runs itself into the nearby Vorderen Lake Gosau. In dry periods however, the small lake whose water quality varies between excellent clear and turbid, disappears. Here you can just sit back and unwind.
Our tip: A hike to “Glücksplatz” Gosaulacke can be combined perfectly with a tour to the Hinterer Lake Gosau.
