Austrian Lakes: Grübl See & Grüner See

We were lucky to be some of the last few divers to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Grüner See before diving was banned in 2017. Photo by Marco Daturi.

Austria offers divine diving at high altitudes in freshwater lakes. Marco Daturi takes us to two beautiful lakes found in the mountains of Styria­­—one that continues to enthrall and one which has recently been closed for conservation and protection.

Completely landlocked doesn’t necessarily mean that diving is out of the question. Austria is best known for alpine skiing, historical Vienna and delicious cakes, but also offers some really spectacular diving. Here, one can dive wrecks and walls, enjoying a rich aquatic life in lakes with great visibility.
