The crystal clear Hintersee lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park: an adventure for the whole family
Discover a breathtaking natural wonder as you look into the crystal clear waters of Hintersee lake in the Hohe Tauern National Park, surrounded by steep rock faces. The best time to visit this impressive spot is the morning, when the sun’s rays glitter especially beautifully on the surface. A good place for a lunch break or a snack is the Gamsblickhütte hut, which serves regional delicacies such as Alpine cheeses, cured ham and home-made bread.
And another highlight awaits you: Just a few steps from the hut is the head of the valley, and as you walk towards it you’ll see a few little waterfalls along the route, and then a spectacular large waterfall.
Location: Mittersill, around 1 hour by car from the Rosentalerhof. The Hintersee lake lies to the south of Mittersill at the end of the Felber valley and it can be easily reached by car; there is a car park within walking distance.
Best time to visit: in the morning
