Maybe there is something suitable for you!
The Wörthersee in Carinthia is one of the most beautiful lakes in the country and is not called the Austrian Caribbean for nothing.

In the Salzkammergut you will find the beautiful Fuschlsee, which is still an insider tip. The emerald green lake is less touristy than other lakes in the Salzkammergut and offers good water quality. Even if the water temperature is not quite as warm with a maximum of 19 degrees, the Fuschlsee is still good for swimming. If you like it romantic, you should definitely go to the renaissance castle Fuschl, which is located on a small hill directly on the water and offers a great view. I have these near the Fuschlseeromantic accommodation selected for you. The wooden house is only a few meters from the lake and has cozy rooms. Each double room has a balcony with a view of the lake and a large bathroom including a bathtub. The center of Fuschl am See is just a few minutes’ walk away.

But you can also rent a boat and sail across the Traunsee – so it definitely won’t be boring. The house can accommodate a total of seven people and costs € 149 per night.
Green lake, Styria
According to sunglasseswill, the green lake is probably the most extraordinary lake in Austria, because it offers a fascinating underwater world. Under normal circumstances, the lake is only one meter deep, but when it is flooded by the water, the level rises so high that the entire surrounding park sinks into the green dream water. The phenomenon is due to the surrounding mountains, because once a year the snow melts and so the park is flooded by melt water. Unfortunately it is forbidden to swim and dive in the green lake – this is how the underwater world should be protected. However, you can stay overnight in Tragöß nearby and pay a visit to the lake. This Airbnb is entirely in Scandinavian style and offers a lot of comfort. You can walk to the green lake in about half an hour. In the house you will find many extras such as a pool table, a table tennis table and a sauna. Overall, the house offers space for 10 people, for one night you pay € 300.

In the beautiful Salzkammergut you will find the Mondsee, which is particularly popular with water sports enthusiasts. Whether on the surfboard, on the sailing boat or on the water skis – active vacationers can let off steam at the Mondsee. But nature lovers will also get their money’s worth, as there are over 150 kilometers of hiking trails to discover. Advanced hikers should definitely go to the Drachenwand area, where a great view of the Mondsee awaits you at the summit.
