This small lake a few kilometres northwest of the town reaches about 22°C in summer and, apart from swimming, it offers good opportunities for windsurfing and scuba diving; contact addresses for water sports are listed in the booklet Mariazellerland von A-Z, available at the tourist office.

An easy four-hour Rundwanderweg (circuit trail) runs past the lake and south through forest back into Mariazell; alternatively, you can take the steam Museumstramway, which runs at weekends and holidays in July and August. It leaves from the Museumstramway Bahnhof.
