With the power plant construction in 1975, this reservoir was created, which is about 98 hectares large, 7 km long, up to 200 m wide and up to 40 m deep. The reservoir Klaus begins at the confluence of Steyr and pond, at the Lake Elisabeth.

The depths of the Klaus reservoir are also very popular with anglers. The main fish in Lake Klaus is the brown trout, which thrives here very well, because the lake has the best water quality. With normal water supply, the water is completely replaced every seven days. Other fish species are rainbow trout, brown trout, grayling and pike.

Kneipp – Kneipp facility in Hinterstoder

The Kneipp facility of Hinterstoder is located 3 km from our house on the outskirts of Hinterstoder. Whether you first step on water in the ice-cold water of the Steyr, or walk around "theorgan clock"barefoot, is your decision.
When stepping on water, you should walk about 30-40 steps in the stork walk through the ice-cold water, with each step you should pull your leg completely out of the water. After stepping on the water, warm up your legs again and possibly wrap them warmly and rest and relax on the benches at the Kneipp facility

At the "theorgan clock" you walk barefoot on the most different stone materials. This stimulates your foot reflex zones in different ways and invigorates your body. A round is aligned to the 12-hour field and shows you which organs are noticeable at which time, in case of malfunction.
Choose your own “foot reflex zone massage speed” and circle"theorgan clock" at least twice.
