Diving Entry "Hinkelsteine"
Diving entry point
At the entry area to the left, you will find a larger-sized wooden house, from which you must dive, diagonally, left hand for 10 minutes until you reach the first of three menhirs at a depth of 17 meters.
The second menhir lies slightly to the right, a bit further behind. In order to reach the third and largest menhir, you should follow the floor to a depth of 29 meters, where a huge rock quite suddenly appears out of the mud floor. It reaches up until a depth of 17 m, and with a complete (diving) lap around it, offers you a few surprises. On the way back, you can spend some time in the shallow water and observe fish among the sparse vegetation.
Since 2010 the first happy place under water in the Salzkammergut is here. The mystical formation of three menhirs offers some surprises for divers. The place of happiness sign is about 10 meters at the left hand side from the entry point for divers.
The description of the diving spot on the information board is only available in German. You can find the English description in the catalog of Attersee Diving (available at the tourist offices in all villages around lake Attersee or online
New: Since 2018 there are situated three life-size pile dwelling families, carved out of wood around the first Menhir.
