    A beautiful lake. It was rightly voted the most beautiful place in Austria in the 2019 program "9 places - 9 treasures". And the cable car, which has just been renovated, is also quick and easy to get to the top. Otherwise there is a mountain path from the valley station that leads up. Almost 400 vertical meters have to be mastered here. Otherwise there is a very nice hiking trail around the lake. Fishing is also worthwhile. However, you need a permit for this.

    You can walk around the Lünersee in a marvelous way, with the family in 1.5 to 2 hours, once around or up to one of the surrounding peaks. Always in view the sparkling blue of the water, which he gets from an artificial glacier inlet.

    The Lünersee is one of the largest lakes in the Austrian province of Vorarlberg in the municipality of Vandans.
    It lies at an altitude of 1970 m above sea level. A. at the foot of the Schesaplana. In 1959 Vorarlberger Illwerke AG enlarged the storage volume of the lake with a dam; since then it has been using the water to generate electricity in the Lünersee plant. Through an artificial tunnel, the lake is fed by the meltwater of the Brandner glacier. The processed water of Lake Lüner is cached in the reservoir Latschau.
    The net capacity of Lünersee amounts to 78.3 million m³ (water surface 1.55 km²). This corresponds to about 262 million kWh of stored energy. The water depth is well over 50 meters.
    The area around the lake forms the valley end of the Brandnertal valley, which can only be reached via narrow paths or the Lünerseebahn from the Schattenlagant area. Directly at the mountain station at the dam is the Douglasshütte, which serves as a snack and overnight accommodation for hikers.

    Those who like to use climbing trails to climb to a summit, turn left off the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn along the dam wall and walk on the marked path to the Saulajoch.

    We are with the children of the Golmer mountain railway (mountain station) to Heinrich Hueter hut, then over the Lünerkrinne, the Lünersee and the Alpe am Lünersee to Totalphütte. From there back to the lake and on to Lindauer Hütte. The "Swiss Gate" on the way offers a magnificent view of Switzerland. Beautiful and for our children 7 + 9 no problem.

    In this circular walk it is still worth going to the Lünerkrinne. Nice view into the Rellstal and Zimbablick,

  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    The Lünersee is one of the largest lakes in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. Its water level is at full dam at an altitude of 1970 m above sea level. A. at the foot of the Schesaplana. The water depth is 139 meters when full.

    The water is used by illwerke vkw AG to generate electricity in the Lünersee plant. After the state of Vorarlberg had already started sealing work on the bottom of the lake in 1920, Vorarlberger Illwerke AG increased the storage volume of the lake in 1959 with a dam.

    In October 2019, the ORF program "9 places - 9 treasures" voted Lünersee the most beautiful place in Austria.

    10 days ago, after the tour of Brand - Oberzalimhütte - Mannheimer Hütte - Schesaplana - Totalphütte in Lake Lünersee, we bathed. It was wonderfully refreshing.

  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    The new Lünerseebahn will start operating again on August 8, 2020!

    The Lünersee is one of the most beautiful alpine lakes and a well-known excursion destination. With the Lünerseebahn you can easily reach the Lünersee within a 5-minute cable car ride. Alternatively, you can also reach the Lünersee on foot via the "Bösen Tritt".

    The ascent on this side of the lake is very steep, if you go halfway around the lake you come to a more beautiful path to Totalalphütte.

    This circular route is highly recommended, when the weather is nice you think you are on the Mediterranean. Gentians even grow in some places. 👌👌😎😉
