Gans am Wasser – Bohemian flair at the Mollsee

In the middle of the Westpark right next to the small lake called Mollsee and surrounded by trees and greenery, you can find the outdoor café Gans am Wasser.

What used to be just one customized container with some chairs has expanded into a small bohemian village with loads of painted benches, colorful tents and even bathtubs and a canopy bed to sit in. It is the perfect location to grab a cup of coffee, a piece of cake or a burger at the counter and just relax under one of the oriental sunshades right at the lake. I can tell you it’s not easy to just pass by on my bike on my way to work every day and not make a quick stop! But whenever I go there it’s hard not to lose track of time while enjoying the nature and the bohemian vibes.

Luckily Gans am Wasser is also worth a visit in the evenings when it turns into an event location with a little bar and a stage where concerts, readings and even yoga lessons take place. Sounds like the perfect place to hang out? It is! The café is opened all year round but closed when the weather is too bad, so make sure to check the weather forecast or their facebook page before you go there!
