Bathing fun for young and old

Lake Erlaufsee

827 m above the sea level, 3 km away from Mariazell the lake Erlaufsee is located on border of Styria and Lower Austria.

When sun is shining the lake is ideal for bathing fun. It offers a beach with pebble stones, a huge meadow, 2 water slides, 2 footbridges, a jumping area as well as a playground for children. Dogs are allowed in a small area (from the second footbridge to the meadow).

For hot days the mountain lake is a good place for refreshing. The average temperature in summer is 19-22 degrees.
