Like the lake Irrsee, the warmest swimming lake in the Salzkammergut, was born ....

To the north of the Mondsee you can find the romantic Irrsee lake. This moor lake is 5 km long and 1 km wide and is surrounded by a natural and unspoilt landscape. Due to its unique fauna and flora the whole lake is protected by nature protection laws. Bathers enjoy its warm temperatures while anglers appreciate its good stock of fish.

As legend goes, the area now covered by the Irrsee was once a fertile farmland. Once the castle of an evil and crafty sorcerer stood upon a hill here. He tormented all of his diligent neighbours with his pranks. One day he sent a messenger to give the brave salt miners of Bad Ischl a sealed pot. They were suspicious enough to refuse the gift and so the messenger took it back. On the way back to the castle he took a break an opened the pot himself out of curiosity. Masses of water flowed out and flooded the whole area sinking the castle. The water formed the Irrsee lake and some days the towers of the castle can still be seen at the bottom of the lake.
