Tips

  • Kauai

    There are 2 benches in this square and you have a fantastic view of Vernagt and the lake

    Also in August still freezing cold. But definitely worth a refreshment!

    Fantastic reservoir with a turquoise blue color. For us the end of the E5

    A wonderfully beautiful lake with the beautiful backdrop of forests and partly snow-capped mountains of the Schnalstal. The lake is definitely worth a visit - but keep in mind that the parking lot at the dam (especially on weekends) can be quite crowded. It is therefore worthwhile to leave early.

    Beautiful, especially in the sunrise or sunset
    Circumnavigation takes about 2-3 hours depending on how much time you take

    Super> round trips around the reservoir are too high. Insider tip is but to go from the lake to the Özi monument. Stopover at Similaun Hütte, or go through. Walking time from the lake to the Özi, about 5-6 hours.

    We've been up here four times and it's always nice. The only thing that was not so nice is that the lake was pretty empty, we had not seen it so empty, so despite the sun is not so good the turquoise color of the lake over.

    Always nice to walk up there around the lake. Most beautiful, however, if not too little water is in it.

    Very nicely located and many tours around the lake. In Vernagt itself there is actually only a small cafe / shop to take a break.

    Super alpine backdrop. There are different tours from the lake, or around. Everything super marked. My insider tip is via the Similaun hut to the Ötzifund site. Walking time about 6-8 hours. You can spend the night at the hut.

    The lake can already be seen from the Similaun hut. The turquoise water shimmers in the distance.

    The lake changes its color from light green to turquoise blue between August and September.
