    Anyone who walks the panorama path is really offered something, namely a great panorama.

    This panorama path lives up to its name in every respect. If possible, you should go twice, namely once in the morning and once in the afternoon, then you have the sun once from the front and once from the back. So two different panoramas.

    The Heiterwanger See together with the Plansee forms the second largest water area in Tyrol. The Heiterwanger See is located directly at the gate to the Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena - in the homonymous community Heiterwang. The Plansee is connected to the Heiterwanger See by a 300 meter long canal and belongs to the municipality Reutte.Especially popular are the boat tours - there are also great dinner cruises. Heiterwanger See is also extremely attractive because it is so diverse and many activities can be done around the lake.

    Very nice walk along the see, nice narrow parts, which are sometimes uneven.

    The Heiterwanger See is located at 1,000 m and measures at the lowest point 75 m. It is connected by a 300 meter long canal with the Plansee.
    A beautiful circular path 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 Plansee. The Plansee belongs to the municipality Reutte, the Heiterwangersee to the municipality Heiterwang, but they nevertheless form a unit, because they are connected by a narrow, 300 meters long water channel and together reach the second largest lake area of Tyrol.The water quality is excellent, the temperatures are just right for a refreshing dip on hot summer days and on the banks there are beautiful bays. Also, the many opportunities for recreational activities make the two lakes so popular. From beach volleyball to miniature golf, everything is close by. You can rent rowing and electric boats, or enjoy a stimulating sea breeze on a ship. From mid-May to mid-October, the MS Margarethe and the MS Wilhelm sail across the Heiterwanger See and the Plansee. Four entry and exit points are available, so a boat trip can be wonderfully combined with beautiful walks near the shore. Even a Nordic Walking track is located directly on the lake and is ideal for ambitious training sessions.The Heiterwangersee and the Plansee also attract many divers. These appreciate the diverse underwater flora and fauna as well as the good visibility. It may only be dipped at marked points and only with the purchase of a day ticket. For the bathers the Heiterwangersee is however freely accessible.Source and further information: tirol.at/reisefuehrer/natur-gesundheit/badeseen/badegewaesser/a-badesee-heiterwangersee

    The Heiterwanger and Plansee are connected by a canal and are located at 1,000m above sea level.
    The Heiterwanger See is up to 75m deep. Around the two lakes are beautiful forest paths for hiking, Nordic walking and running. In midsummer, the lake invites you to take a bath at wonderfully beautiful bays, at temperatures between 19 ° and 22 °.
    Two liner ships operate from mid-May to mid-October.

    The lake is worth seeing in the autumn, because the light is special. In addition, relatively little is going on.

    Fantastic and idyllic lake, the turquoise color just looks indescribable - especially in contrast to the Plansee, which is much darker blue.
