    Hintersteiner See natural bathing lake
    A natural jewel that you have to see. The Hintersteiner See above Scheffau is considered to be one of the most beautiful and cleanest mountain lakes in Tyrol and is located in the Kaisergebirge nature reserve and at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser.
    You can drink the water of the Hintersteiner See, the mountain lake impresses with its drinking water quality.
    It is really unique to bathe in its crystal clear water after or during a bike tour in the Kaiser Mountains.
    A beautiful lawn with a small beer garden welcomes visitors to the bathing establishment on the lake. There are other snack stations on the lake that invite you to stop.
    The lake is not overcrowded either, at least not when I was at the lake.
    The Hintersteiner See is also the location of the Bergdoktor and the crime series SOKO Kitzbühl.
    Either you hike to the lake or you ride your bike, an absolutely fantastic experience.
    The return trip to Söll by bike is one long downhill ride, a dream. It's a great pleasure.

    A fantastically beautiful mountain lake.
    Fenced-in shore areas and signs indicate that you should only swim in the lido area.
    Just look and enjoy! 🙂
    There is currently a lot going on around the lake ...

    An enchanting mountain lake, 56 ha in size and up to 36 m deep, lies at 883 m above sea level high above Scheffau in the midst of the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve. A hike around Lake Hintersteiner offers a deep view. A bike ride here is always worthwhile. Wonderful mountain lake with wonderful photo opportunities. The food here in the restaurant is also of the highest quality.

    The lake is great and invites you to swim. Right at the beginning there is a small seaside resort - it's worth it

    The Hintersteiner See is a mountain lake in the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve and belongs to the municipality of Scheffau in the Austrian state of Tyrol. The lake was formed during the last ice age and is located at an altitude of 882 m above sea level. A. Underground springs fill the lake with crystal clear water.
    A hike around the Hintersteiner See gives a deep look.
    On the south bank, the path climbs a little and offers wonderful views of the turquoise blue water of the crystal clear mountain lake. The north shore of the lake is accessible to everyone thanks to a driveway.There is also a bathing beach here, the attraction of which lies in its naturalness. Being the most beautiful and cleanest natural bathing lake in Tyrol is an award enough for Lake Hintersteiner in Scheffau.

    Some scenes from the Bergdoktor series are filmed here. Lake is quiet on a mountain. The driveway is very steep, but tarred.
