Of Watermen and Natural Beauties Salt Mine and "3-Lakes Tour"

Do you know the legend of the merman in Lake Grundlsee? Supposedly, this mysterious man would whisper in the ears of fishermen that there were salt deposits deep inside Sandling mountain in Altaussee. In other words, after your visit to the mystical Altaussee Salt Mine, the "3-Lakes Tour" will be the perfect complement. Your cruise begins at the Seeklause boat landing close to Seehotel Grundlsee. You will then float gently across the deep-blue lake to Gössl. After the ferry ride, you will no doubt be happy to do a bit of walking, so the few minutes it takes to stroll across to the Toplitzsee will be just what the doctor ordered. The untamed romance of the Ausseerland will now become clearly evident to you, as a "platte", a traditional wooden boat, carries you across the Toplitzsee, past the waterfalls and in the direction of the Kammerersee. Leaving the Toplitzsee, you will walk for about five minutes amid magical nature, coming to the romantic Kammersee. The boat will then bring you back to Gössl. And who knows, you might even catch sight of him in the depths of the Grundlsee – that legendary merman.
