Mountain Biking Highlight
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.
