Lake Hallstatt has been referred to as the "melancholic lake", the "still fjord" and the "vision of a perfect mountain lake". It is a classic relic of the Ice Age and it has a total area of 8.58 square KM lying between the steep Obertraun and Hallstatt mountains and Bad Goisern.
It is the fifth largest of the Salzkammergut lakes. Although this lake is one of the darker, colder, less inviting lakes of the region, but this darkness and stillness can actually reveal the true beauty of the lake through its mirror-like surface.
