Nature never stops surprising us with her masterpieces like the Green Lake.Green lake or Grüner See is a lake with emerald-green water located in Styria, Austria in the village Tragöß.
Surrounded by the Hochsachwab Mountains and forests, the Green Lake has been an attraction for tourists all over the World because of its clean and clear water. The water comes from the snowmelt from the mountains and has a temperature of 6-7 C.
During winter, the lake is only 1-2 m deep and the surrounding area is used as a county park. However, the emerald-green water from which the name ‘Green Lake’ originated, isn’t the only reason why tourists want to visit this place.
In spring, when the temperature rises and snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills up with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12 m from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.
The lake was also popular among divers who could observe the green meadows in the edge zone of the lake, particularly in June when the water is at its highest.
The more people hear about this lake, the more they want to visit it, but respecting nature is far more important than fulfilling traveling wishes. Let’s not forget that nature is the one giving the Earth and us these beautiful places so we can admire and protect them, but she can also take them away if we disrespect her.
