June 22 is a special day.
The traditional Midsummer's Night is observed with fires around the lake.
The fires are made at 9 p.m.
We made a small one in the yard of our school where we stayed.

The only danger that I discovered were ticks and moskitoes that could bite you, especially in the forests.
Ticks are numerous there, especially in June.
But they are not all poisonous, although you have to remove them with care.
They say the ticks are very poisonous in June.
The tick often remains attached to your skin, so the sooner you ged rid of it, the better.
However, do not pull, it may leave a part of it still embedded.
What do you have to do?
* Either "drown" the tick by covering it with a heavy oil like salad oil or machine oil. If it does not separate immediately, leave the oil over the wound for about half an hour and then slowly and carefully remove the tick's body with tweezers;
*or light a cigarette and apply the glowing end to the tick's body taking care not to burn the skin. It should now fall off.
Use tick-repellent chemicals on skin and clothing, which will considerably reduce the risk of infection in tick-infested localities.
Although all the locals say their insects are not infectious at all.How to Remove Ticks

This might be the only trap - once you get there, you feel like exploring the countryside, visiting as many places as you can.
I decided that it would be a good idea to travel around the lake (about 50 km) by bike, but didn't have any.
Besides, it would be a very tiring trip and would not be over in just one day.
You would not do without any local guide, either.
More luck next time...
Unique Suggestions: get a bike and try to visit as many places as you can.
Fun Alternatives: Don't just stay at your accomodation, move about!

I wanted to visit as many places of interest as I could.
If you have time and patience, you can also visit other places of interest:
Sternwarte in Gahberg (astronomic observatory located up the hills);
Chapel in Gahberg (one of the hills that is 860 m high).
There is also an open-air museum in Bach (7 Reichholz) that can be visited upon reservation.
Another old spot is Hoarstubn, an old small house that used to be a shepherd's home dating back to 1850 and located in Reichholz, one of the districts of Weyregg located on the hill.
