The lake is dry / Der See ist trocken

The lake is already almost empty and dry and should get even emptier.

Der See ist bereits fast leer und trocken und soll noch leerer werden.

On Sunday I made a little hike around the Forstsee with my wife. We had forgotten that the lake has been drained and were completely surprised by the "dry lake". There were gray clouds on the sky, but it didn't rain and it was pretty warm.

Am Sonntag habe ich mit meiner Frau eine kleine Wanderung rund um den Forstsee gemacht. Dabei hatten wird komplett vergessen gehabt, dass der See abgelassen worden ist und waren vom "trockenen See" vollkommen überrascht. Am Himmel waren zwar graue Wolken, aber es hat nicht geregnet und es war ziemlich warm.

The Forstsee is located in Carinthia north of the lake Wörthersee on a ridge in the municipality of Techelsberg between Pörtschach and Velden. The lake was artificially created as a reservoir and a penstock leads from the lake directly down to the storage power plant Forstsee at the northern shore of the Wörthersee.

Der Forstsee befindet sich nördlich vom Wörthersee auf einem Höhenrücken im Gemeindegebiet von Techelsberg zwischen Pörtschach und Velden. Der See wurde künstlich als Stausee angelegt und eine Druckrohrleitung führt vom See direkt hinunter zum Speicherkraftwerk Forstsee am Wörtherseenordufer.

From autumn 2020, the penstock will be renewed and parts of the plant renovated. In order to plan these measures, the water level of the lake must be lowered by 20 meters, which is currently happening. After about 10 days the water should be dammed up again. I'm curious how long it will take for the lake to be full again.

Ab Herbst 2020 soll die Druckrohrleitung erneuert und Anlagenteile saniert werden. Um diese Maßnahmen planen zu können, muss der Wasserspiegel des Sees um 20 Meter abgesenkt werden, was zur Zeit gerade geschieht. Nach etwa 10 Tagen soll das Wasser wieder aufgestaut werden. Ich bin neugierig, wie lange es dauern wird, bis der See wieder voll ist.

I did not think that there were so many shells in this lake.

Dass es in diesem See so viele Muscheln gibt, hätte ich mir nicht gedacht.

The Forstsee is natural and can be freely used for swimming. There are two toilet buildings, and garbage cans are set up around the lake. Otherwise, there is a buffet in the entrance area in the summer months, where you can eat and drink something.

Der Forstsee ist naturbelassen und kann frei zum Baden benützt werden. Es gibt zwei Toilettengebäude und rund um den See sind Mülltonnen aufgestellt. Ansonsten gibt es im Eingangsbereich in den Sommermonaten ein Buffet, wo man etwas essen und trinken kann.

Bathing is "wild" between trees and rocks in one of the many smaller and larger bays. Whether dressed or naked, does not matter here.

Gebadet wird "wild" zwischen Bäumen und Felsen in einer der vielen kleinen und größeren Buchten. Ob bekleidet oder nackt, spielt hier keine Rolle.

In the area of the Forstsee there are a few hiking trails and there is also a circular path in the forest around the lake, which is about 4 kilometers long and can be done in 1 to 1.5 hours of leisurely hike partly direct at the lake.

Im Bereich des Forstsees gibt es ein paar Wanderwege und es gibt auch einen Rundweg im Wald um den See, welcher ca 4 Kilometer lang ist und in 1 bis 1,5 Stunden gemütlicher Wanderung zum Teil direkt am See bewältigt werden kann (Forstsee Runde).

Howdy sir johannpiber! Wild Bathing. That is very interesting. lol. I didn't see any shells. It is probably filling back up by now.

Hello @janton 🙂

You didn't see the shells? For such reasons I have linked my photos to photos with a higher resolution, but because you are my friend...




Everything is full of these small shells 😊

Yes, wild bathing, and nude bathing ;) But I have never been there on hot summer days, because I do not want to be caught there with a camera in my hand, if you know what I mean ;) lol

Hope, you have a good day today 😊


!BEER

lol! Yes I would avoid that area like a plague in the summertime! Oh I see them now, thank you sir johann, very interesting!

I haven't known that there are so many shells in this lake before I have seen these ;)
Oh, I have heard, that some people go for a walk in the forest around the lake and they have binoculars with them for bird watching ;) lol


!BEER

lol! Very interesting. That lake would be off limits for me unless it was winter!

That's a good idea, because I think, there are no nudists bathing there in Winter ;) lol
Sometimes I do also go there in Summer, when the weather is bad ;)


!BEER

Right. If the Missus was with you in the summer time you would have to look down at the ground the whole time. lol.

On the ground, where the nudists are sunbathing? That wouldn't be a problem 😉 lol

I hope, I didn't bother you with my post - this lake will be dry for a few weeks only, and next summer the people will be swimming in there again :)

Yes, but there's not so much color here yet - in Slovenia the Autumn has come a week earlier, it seems ;)
Thanks a lot for your comment, @old-guy-photos 🙂

Good morning JJ,
thank you 🙂
They say, that after about 10 days they will start damming again, and they hope, that until June 2020 the lake will be full again. This would be just at the begining of the bathing season.
Have a great day :)
!BEER

Thanks fir the great info I hope your day has started well👍🙂👍
!BEER

I knew, you wanted to know that ;) lol

My day started at the office, and at 10am I decided, that I don't want to work any longer, drove home, put on my hiking clothes and drove to the waterfall which I couldn't visit lately because of the rain :)
So, my day turned from bad to good 🙂
I've just come home and hope, some of the photos are good. It was very dark at the waterfall and there have been people around on the wooden pathway, where I was standing. So the images might be a bit blurred since I had a very long shuttertime.
I hope, you have a good day too.
!BEER

I wish I could have bailed out of the office at 10Am, today is dragging on mainly due t the fact that for some reason my Mind did not want to switch off last night an I only got one hours sleep between 3 and 4

I am sure you got some greta shot and look forward to checking out your post, glad you had a good day
Cheers an !BEER

One hour of sleep would be far too less for me, and I can feel with you. Not long, and you can go home too :)
Cheers and !BEER

Ohh yes its a bit of a struggle to keep my eyes open at the moment LOL

Cheers and !BEER

Stick the googly eyes on your closed eyes - maybe no one will notice it ;) lol

Great shots! And rather fun to briefly get to see the bottom of the lake!

Thank you so much, Melinda 🙂
I have read in the newspaper a while ago, that they want to dry the lake, but I had completely forgotten that. So, we have been quite surprised. There are so many shells on the ground, and it stinks ;)
