Like the Turrachersee, the Schwarzsee is also divided in the middle by the state border Kärtnten / Styria. The 2.6 hectare mountain lake is a little higher at 1840 meters above sea level and is only about 4 meters deep. The water surface appears black because of the bog soil and the large amount of anthracite. The lake is located in a swamp area, which is home to many frogs and toads, but also to snakes such as the adder and various snakes. The shore is completely natural because a nature reserve extends around the lake. When you pass the Schwarzsee, the old dwarf birch on the lakeshore, a relic from the pre-ice age, will catch your eye.
