Weissensee is a first-class natural jewel and is Europe’s highest altitude swimming lake. Its water quality is excellent. The nature around the lake is magnificent. An atmosphere awaits you that is perfect for relaxing holiday days. The lake stretches 11km in length from east to west. Camping Ronacher is on the eastern shore, away from any through traffic, in a unique location in nature. You can head directly towards the western shore by boat, on foot along the walking path by the lake or by mountain bike on interesting trails
Our campsite adjoins directly to the lido. For the children there is a sandy beach, where they can make smaller and bigger things. Parasols can be rent, but there are also a lot of trees that provide shade. The deeper water is easily accessible over the pier. In summertime the lake gets a temperature of 21 – 23 degrees despite of the sea level.
Nature park Weissensee
Children and parents will experience protected nature in the Nature Park Weissensee, which is in the Eastern Alps of the Gailtal and is known as special natural stated area.
Two-thirds of the lakeshore which has a sea level of 930 m are unspoilt. As there is no street between East and Westside of the lake, the families can go by boat, bike or foot from one to the other end.
The nature park communities Stockenboi and Weissensee set themselves the target to show the visitors the beauties of the nature and sensibilize them for a respectful dealing with it. Families will get a great insight in the landscape with the manifold flora and its characteristics.
The nature park Weissensee is midst a great natural and cultural area, which has also a rich offer for sparetime and sport activities. Besides the lake with drinking water quality there is a 200 km big hiking area and also mountainbiking and nordic walking trails. In the cold season snowshoeing and tours with sledge dogs are very popular. But also the 6,5 m² natural frozen surface is used for winter activities.
The whole year there are offers for schoolclasses and travel groups to experience and learn something about the nature, for example:
