Wallersee

Austria

With a size of 6 sq.km. the Wallersee is the largest lake in the Salzburg Lake District.
The name of the lake originates from the middle high german word  „Walchen,“ which means „stranger“, and not from the fact that sheat fish (Waller) are to be found in the waters. Any Romanic foreigners who settled  south of Bavaria were considered  by the locals to be „Walchen.“

Wenger Moor Nature Reserve

A larger part of the area around Köstendorf reaching down to the lake includes the protected Wenger Moorland. Also the reeded banks of the lake are protected.
