Der Altausseer See ist ein Alpensee im steirischen Salzkammergut (sterreich) in der Nhe von Bad Aussee.
Der See ist 3 km lang, bis zu 1 km breit und im Norden und Osten von Auslufern des Toten Gebirges umgeben. Direkt am Westufer liegt der Ort Altaussee. Das Einzugsgebiet des Sees ist 54 km gro und liegt zur Gnze im Toten Gebirge.

Altausseer See nestles amid the Salzkammergut's spectacular mountains and makes for a great day out.

Located at 712 meters above sea levels, the 214-ha size lake is situated away from the traffic and therefore not easily accessible by car. Altauseerlake has a 6-kilometer long bathing beach and a water temperature of around 25 Celsius in summer. Admission to the lake is free. Facilities include a beach volleyball field, clay tennis courts and rental boats. You can take the MS Erzherzog Johann pleasure cruiser to get to Seewiese-Altaussee.
