Lakeside Furs is a furry summer convention in Austria. The first cons took place at Grundlsee, a mountain lake in Salzkammergut, Upper Styria. The purpose of the convention is to have a relaxing time in a beautiful landscape and come together in a personal atmosphere. As there is no strict separation between organizers and guests, everyone is invited and expected to participate and help.
