The Spechtensee ...

 ... is a beautiful little lake on the southern edge of the Totes Gebirge ("dead mountains") mountains in Austria in the parish of Pürgg-Trautenfels near Wörschachwald at the Ennstal, belonging to the federal state of Styria. The lake is named after the Specht family who were formerly resident in Stainach and who lived on the so-called Specht Estate (Spechtengut, nowadays Schloss Sonnhof="Sonnhof Manor House") until the end of the 19th century.
