Lake Weissensee is located 930m above sea level. The lake is 11,6 km long and 99m deep on the deepest spot. The lake basin is located in an east to west valley of the Gailtal Alps that has been scoured by a side branch of the Drau glacier. Because of the low amount of nutritional values and because the lake is so deep, trouts are very common in the lake. The low amount of oxygen especially in the deep zones of the lake (below 60m) is also very notable. The circular sewage water system which was built in the 80s is also a big reason why the lake has never been polluted by domestic wastewater. Natural inflows of the lake are small calcareous becks, but only the Mühlbach beck and the Praditzbach beck carry water constantly. Further inflows are springs from below the lake called “fountains” that were used as spawning grounds by lake trouts. The Weißenbach beck on the east shore of the lake is the only outward flow.
