    The Vilsalpsee is a 1165 m high lake in the Austrian Alps. From it springs the river Vils. Located below Gaishorn and Rauhorn, it is a popular tourist destination in the Tannheimer Tal. Around the lake, there is an easy trail that leads to the Bergaicht waterfall at the end of the valley. Since 1957, it has been surrounded by the Vilsalpsee nature reserve, where many species thrive, including rare orchids. For the Great Crested Grebe, the lake is Austria's highest breeding ground.

    Although part of the lake circumnavigation is blocked (rockfall), nobody seems to stick to it. So jump on it.

    Magnificent mountain lake in the middle of the magnificent mountains in the Tannheim valley.
    Boat rental and catering invite you to forget the time.
    By car you don't get to the lake but have to park in Tannheim and then take the small train.

    Along the circular hiking trail around Lake Vilsalp, there are always such nice opportunities for breaks.
