About Mondsee

  • Islands:

Mondsee (Moonlake) is a lake in the Upper Austrian part of the Salzkammergut and neighbour to the larger Attersee. Its southwestern shore marks the border between the states of Upper Austria and Salzburg, and also between the Northern Limestone Alps in the South and the Sandstone zone of the Northern Alps. The Drachenwand (Dragonwall) at the southern shore of the lake is an impressive sight. Mondsee is one of Austria's last privately-owned lakes. In August 2008, Nicolette Waechter (owner) announced it was up for sale. In 1864, remains of neolithic pile dwellings were discovered in the lake. Ian Fleming mentions the Mondsee in one of his James Bond novels, Moonraker. In chapter six, Blofeld reports to the members of SMERSH that their German unit has successfully retrieved in secret Himmler's hoard of jewels from the Mondsee. Fish living in the lake:
