Just below Kleinarl’s most famous peak - the Ennskraxn – lies the smallest of the mountain lakes in Wagrain-Kleinarl. Below the summit, on the shoreline of the blue lake, its steep cliffs tower upwards. The water, which generally shimmers in deep-blue tones of color, gives the lake its name. 

It is not so much its size as it is the special location and uniqueness of the countryside which create the unique appeal of this mountain lake. But whatever the case, one of the most beautiful hikes in Wagrain-Kleinarl will lead you up there.
