See This Ordinary-Looking Park? Something Amazing Happens Here When The Season Changes.

There’s a beautiful park in Styria, Austria, located at the foot of the snow-capped Hochschwab mountains. This scenic county park is a favorite site for hikers and explorers during winter.

But come spring, as the temperature starts rising, the snow and ice on the mountaintops begins to melt and trickle down onto the park, which majestically transforms it into a lake, where scuba divers come to enjoy a breathtaking underwater park experience.

During winter, the place just looks like any ordinary-looking park.

It’s a perfect parkland for hiking and exploring.

The locals call this place “Grüner See” which means green lake, and is only about 3 to 6 feet deep.


But when summer approaches, the water level dramatically rises.


The entire park becomes submerged under the crystal-clear water.

From beautiful park, it morphs into an incredible hotspot for scuba divers.

When the water starts to recede, the lake returns gradually back to its original size. And the park once more is returned to the hikers and explorers.
