Austria’s magnificent landscape is rich in lakes, with more than three hundred altogether. The previous Ice Age’s enormous glaciers covered and wore away the mountainous Alps, then after they melted their water filled up the valleys, thus creating these mirror-like lakes. This sublime scenery has attracted many a filmmaker since it offers a perfect backdrop for a period drama, a nature film, an action movie or even a sports feature. Among this vast range of lakes, there are crystal-clear ones some deep in wild nature or at the bottom of a sheer cliff, while others are next to historic towns or charming wooden huts. Regardless of which is chosen, the countries’ exceptional infrastructure ensures accessibility and safe conditions for shooting, granting that even the wilderness is not an issue for a film or photography production.
