To keep his natural beauty intact, bathing and swimming was already forbidden by the city administration of Innsbruck very early. The Lake is under nature conservation. The muddy water has vicious shores with high reeds, which often hide big quicksand-like puddles. The water quality fluctuates between A and B grade. Smaller kinds of carps are living in the Lake and several ducks are using the Lake as their living space.
