Hintersteiner See

14,5 km

Is it about the journey or the destination? You decide. There is nothing like a pristine mountain lake for relief from summer's heat. You might find it incomparably refreshing to cool off in lovely Hintersteinersee Lake at the end of your hiking day. With that in mind, and surrounded by the mesmerizing peaks of Kaiser Range, you will walk across mountain meadows, dwarf pine areas, beech and mixed woodlands as well as rock scrambles, passing Grutten Hut on your way to picture-postcard Hintersteinersee Lake. This is the cleanest and most beautiful mountain lake in the whole of Tirol. The pristine lake covers 56 hectares of spring-fed waters and measures 36 metres at its deepest point. Hintersteinersee Lake is private property; swimming is allowed at its north-western beach. Before taking a plunge, why not dip your finger in holy water? The Baroque ceiling frescos by Matthias Kirchner at Bärnstatt Chapel opposite Bärnstatt Inn are well worth seeing.
