Underwater Park Gruner See, Austria

From series “Top 16 Most Unusual and Original Parks and Gardens”
In Austria, fans of unusual places will be able to visit the Gruner See park located in the small town of Tragoess. In winter, the park doesn’t differ from the usual one. It has a comfortable zone for walks with wooden benches and a stone-paved pathwalks. The main decoration of the unusual park of Gruner See is the lake of the same name. At the beginning of spring, it changes the appearance of the park beyond recognition.

Underwater Park Gruner See, Austria In spring, mountain streams gradually fill the lake, so it’s increased by several times and completely floods the park. Gruner See is a real treasure for divers. In warmer months, they can walk through the picturesque park down the water. During warmer months, the lake depth is 12 meters. Incredibly picturesque alpine meadows, paths, which are used by visitors, as well as trees and benches are hidden under a layer of water. It’s incredibly amazing to watch the natural beauty of the park under the water, but divers should take into account that, even in the height of summer, the lake temperature is less than 5 degrees Celsius.

Gruner See name literally translates as Green Lake. The color of water in the lake is really green. That’s because its bottom is covered with thick green grass and bushes. Travelers who don’t want to dive into the icy water can relax at a number of special recreation areas with benches and nice bridges. It’s very convenient to enjoy one of the most amazing natural sights of Austria from there. With the onset of frost, the lake gradually reduces its scale. In winter, its depth is only 1-2 m.
