Yes, really! It is possible to dive in the mountains in a lake called Erlaufsee which is a few km to the north-west of Mariazell.
The water is supposedly very clear but, I would imagine, extremely cold. Elevation is 828m so you can test your 'diving at altitude' skills as well as your freshwater diving skills. Maximum depth is 38m. According to some information I found on-line there are lake trout, grayling, pike, perch, rudd and charr as well as some row boats and pedalos! Not exactly wreck diving, is it?
Equipment: A drysuit is probably required along with helmet, gloves etc for cold water diving. There is a dive shop there but I don't know if you can rent gear or not.
