Even back in the 1950s, summer vacationers were drawn by the teeming waters of the Tauern range. In Donnersbachwald at that time, there used to be a small, really pleasant outdoor pool. A thick wooden fence provided absolute privacy for swimmers. This beloved open-air pool inspired the always-innovative Riesneralm lift company to embark on a building project unique in the Alpine region: Even when air temperatures are low, swimming on the summit will still be possible, with the water heated and glass walls providing protection against the wind. Through those glass walls, bathers will be able to enjoy impressive 360° views of the Niedere Tauern peaks. This summit pool can be reached using the Riesneralm lifts, which recently received an award as “Austria’s Best Summer Lift”. Once at the top, passengers are greeted by breath-taking mountain vistas.
