    Beautiful corner - driveway a bit tiring without E help - but it is worth it

    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.

    Great mountain lake between Ellmau and Kufstein! Beginners possible almost anywhere, not just at the overcrowded lido ...

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