    This can be combined well with each other. Park the car at the landlord Sereinig and then walk over the Meerauge, the Bodenbauer to Märchenwiese. On the way back then station at the Bodenbauern.

    Even if you have already seen pictures, it is really unbelievable how blue and clear the water is here.

    The Sea-Eye (Slow Jezerce) [17] is a dead ice hole created in the ice age by a glacier with a pond in the middle. It is located near the Gasthof Bodenbauer in 1052 meters above sea level and is accessed by a well-secured trail. The distinctive turquoise color of the water is caused by algae. The emergence of the Meerauges is due to the last ice age (70,000 to 10,000 years ago), the so-called Würm Ice Age. In addition to the mighty Draugletscher formed in the Karawanken local glaciers, whose largest was probably the Bodental Glacier. This ranged from the Vertatscha-Kar almost 6 km out of the valley to just before Windisch-Bleiberg. The glacier covered the entire valley floor and was up to 120 m thick. With the increasing warming about 12,000 to 10,000 years ago, the Bodental glacier retreated gradually, with a lake forming in the ice-free apron. This was gradually filled up over time by rock material. In the place of today's sea-eye was probably a left-behind dead ice lump, which left a visible depression after its complete melting. This depression is fed exclusively by the flow of groundwater in the alluvial debris layers of the valley floor, indicating the rising at the bottom of the sea eye sources. (Wikipedia)

    The clear water is simply magical. But when the weather is nice, it is almost in single file with many other visitors around the sea eye.
