“…Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long, long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow Sew
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do (oh-oh-oh)…”

More about Mondsee?

Mondsee is the fourth largest in Austria, covering over 13 square kilometers. Recognized as a Natura 2000 site for its biodiversity, it’s a popular destination for bathing and sailing. Notably, its shores feature Neolithic stilt house remains, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unique for its private ownership in a region where most large lakes are public, Mondsee’s shores are partly developed, adding to its historical and ecological significance.
