Benches around the Durnholz Lake






The Durnholz Lake is a small alpine lake at the end of the Sarntal.
You can walk around, ( about an 1 hour walk ), sit down on one (or more)
of the many new wooden benches and admire the wonderful landscape.




I didn't count them, but there are surely 15-20 new benches to sit down and relax.

Hats off to the creator(s) of these new benches. Each one is unique. They fit right in to the natural surroundings. What a blessing to have them all around the lake.

This lake is simply breath-taking! Just gorgeous and the reflections are marvelous! What I like about the benches is that fact they are made from the natural resources in the area, and that they are different - at least the ones you showed us. What a great place this would be to spend an afternoon!

Karl, what a beautiful lake! I like the benches, but it is the setting -- the lake and hillside -- that most captures my heart.

So gorgeous! It would probably take me 2 hours to do the lake round and I'd have to test every bench. :)
