This walk is dedicated to the element of water. The Lunzer See is called the pearl of the Eisenwurzen and is the only natural lake in Lower Austria. On the Mittersee there is a beautiful waterfall, the Ludwigsfall. The Obersee (lake) is small, but crystal clear. From the dark green water, a small island rises with pine trees. A boat tour on the Lunzer Lake is also recommended.

Lunz am smaragdgrünen (emerald) See (lake) : Surrounded by a beautiful countryside, surrounded by mountains of the wild Mostviertels, shine the waters. As the only natural lake in Lower Austria Lunzer Lake invites to wonderful swimming, boating and fishing experiences beyond the everyday hustle and bustle. Actually, it should be called Lunz at the lakes, because there are still crystal clear mountain lakes - the Mittersee (lake) and the between romantic rocks and rolling pastures located Obersee (lake) 1113 meters above sea level. They are located in a beautiful setting at the foot of the high alpine Dürrenstein. On the south side of the Obersee can a floating bog (Rotmoos) be seen, above the Mittersee (lake) a romantic waterfall and the Rainerquelle (watersource) with the "brüllenden Stier (roaring bull)".

Eine sehr schöne strecke, leider bis zum obersee großteils forststraße. Folgt man bis knapp vor dem see der markierung auf outdooractive und folgt dann aber den wegweisern zur herrenalm ca 5 min, erreicht man einen schönen rastplatz mit bank und tisch direkt am obersee; wir sind oben zuerst der markierung in der app richtung moor gefolgt, haben aber dort keinen auch nur annähernd so schönen rastplatz gefunden;
