The Heiterwanger See lies at 1,000 m and measures 75 m at its lowest point. It is connected to the Plansee by a 300 meter long canal.
A beautiful circular route leads around the lake which offers fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. The canal can be crossed over a small wooden bridge.

The Heiterwangersee is, so to speak, the twin lake of the Plansee. The Plansee belongs to the municipality of Reutte, the Heiterwangersee to the municipality of Heiterwang, but they still form a unit, because they are connected by a narrow, 300-meter-long water channel and together reach the second largest lake area in Tyrol.
The water quality is excellent, the temperatures are just right for a refreshing swim on hot summer days and there are wonderfully beautiful bathing bays on the banks. The many opportunities for leisure activities also make the two lakes so popular. From beach volleyball to mini golf, everything can be found here in the immediate vicinity. You can rent rowing and electric boats, or enjoy a stimulating sea breeze on a ship. The MS Margarethe and the MS Wilhelm sail over the Heiterwanger See and the Plansee from mid-May to mid-October. Four entry and exit points are available, which is why a boat trip can be wonderfully combined with beautiful hikes near the shore. There is also a Nordic walking route right by the lake and is ideal for ambitious training units.
The Heiterwangersee and the Plansee also attract many divers. They appreciate the diverse underwater flora and fauna as well as the good visibility. It is only allowed to dive at marked spots and only with the purchase of a day pass. However, the Heiterwangersee is freely accessible for bathers.

Postcard idyll on Plansee, which can be circulated in a nice round.
Tip: the piece between Seepitz and landfall "trout" by steamer shorten, because otherwise you would have to run along the unfortunately very busy road on the north side of the Plansee.
