The most beautiful mountain lakes of the Alps

As colourful splashes of colour in the often rugged mountain landscape, mountain lakes often provide a welcome change and cooling. Their colour spectrum, ranging from emerald green to turquoise, is always attractive. Even if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we do not want to withhold our selection of the most beautiful mountain lakes of the Alps from you.
