    Start as early as possible, then you can watch marmots!

    Well, a lot of people and corresponding hype. But still nice. Unfortunately an Instagram Hotspot.

    Absolutely foolish sight, the effort is worthwhile in any case!

    Exhausting climb. On the way it is worthwhile to look for chamois and marmots. The lake is rewarded with its sight. Especially when it is slightly cloudy, the light plays are remarkable.

    Beautiful tour. Quiet and untouched. There is always a lot to discover, and the Schrecksee is the perfect place to cool off after the ascent.

    A real postcard motif. Since the expansion of the way almost 10 years ago, the ascent is no longer particularly dangerous, even if it is still steep and partly scree.

    The Schrecksee is one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful mountain lake, which I have seen so far.

    A beautiful lake that can now be reached even without major alpine dangers. Only in early summer and in the fall, you should consider the snow conditions.

    Once around the Schrecksee to see the whole area. Almost everyone stays with the island at the beginning and does not see the rest

    Very beautiful mountain lake with a great mountain panorama - ideally hike during the week outside of the holiday season, as the Schrecksee is otherwise unfortunately very crowded.
