There are several scenic lakes located near to Mariazell that offer breathtaking nature beauty as well as diversified recreational activities.

Our favorite recommendation:

Erlaufsee: Erlaufsee is a stunning mountain lake. Surrounded by lush greenery and towering mountains, it offers a peaceful ambiance and breathtaking views. Visitors can enjoy picnicking, swimming, boat riding, fishing, or taking leisure walks around the lake. On the weekends the museum tramway runs from St. Sebastian to Erlaufsee. In faithfully restored wagons and locomotives (including the oldest steam tramway locomotive in the world, built in 1884) you are transported back to the time of the turn of the century – exact opening days and travel times at: www.museumstramway.at.
