    The Hintersteiner See is a fantastically beautiful mountain lake in the middle of the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve with crystal clear water and a lido. The lake is 56 hectares and up to 36 meters deep, it lies at 883 meters.

    A beautiful path leads around the lake, which is asphalted from the parking lot to the Goingstätthof snack station to the west and is therefore also suitable for prams. The south bank, on the other hand, rises slightly and offers fantastic views of the Wilder Kaiser, which is reflected in the water. A popular photo opportunity!

    A large paid car park is available. The circular route is also a wonderful hike in winter!

    Very nice circuit around the Hintersteiner lake. The first half is paved the second half leads through the forest. The second half is always up and down. Depending on the condition, hiking sticks are helpful here. At the beginning and in the middle of the trail are restaurants that invite you to take a break.

    From Söll you can walk to this lake. It will certainly be fascinating in autumn, when the leaves have turned colorful. There is also a circular route around the lake with appropriate rest stops.

    A backdrop like a photo wallpaper, crystal clear water with drinking water quality and lots of fish. Only one side accessible by bike.

    The lake Hintersteiner See is picturesquely situated at the foot of the Widen Kaiser. It is interesting that the lake is dammed on one side of the lake ("front") and on the other side ("back"), the water is derived for power generation along the stone stairs.

    A beautiful loop around the lake with so many refreshments in between. Even a grass snake, which eagerly hissed, may meet there. 😁

    At Hintersteiner See, in the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve, in whose water the peaks of the Kaiser Mountains are impressively reflected, there is a public bathing beach where you can also swim. A visit is also worthwhile if you don't want to swim, because the area around the lake with its meadows and forests invites the visitor and observer to linger and relax. Nice restaurants on the lake or near the lake complete the offer.
    The lake tour is particularly beautiful. Again and again an impressive picture presents itself here, on the one hand the wonderful panorama and on the other hand the mountain peaks of the Wilder Kaiser are always reflected in the lake.

    Very beautiful lake in the Alps. On the circuit there are many seats and rest areas with a beautiful view of the lake. The circular walk itself can be run with almost any shoe and you get a nice insight into the nature and the vegetation.
