We left our car in the parking, bought some drinking water, and took Maier direction, then made a turn towards Hufflehutte for a perfect authentic Austrian lunch after a 2 hours (easy to average) walk in the forest with stunning views of the lake. It...More

You can walk around the entire lake. The most difficult walking is right at the beginning if you start off to the left (still easy but a bit uphill) and you get great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Once you have done that...More

We walked around the lake , stopping at the cafe with llamas. Wonderful views although the walk through the forest was more uphill than expected. However the swim at the end was worth it and the colour of the water was fabulous in the sunshine....More

Very easy to walk round with lovely views. Full of fish and no pollution. The only negative would be is that they allow traffic on the small narrow road alongside the lake. In our view all private cars should be made to stop at the...More

Lovely, well signposted hike from the village. Hintersteinersee absolutely beautiful, well worth the effort. Good restaurant with baby changing facilities. You can pay to stay a while on the beach.

This is a very nice lake. You pay to park and also pay to use the lido for swimming. You can have a very nice walk around the lake with places to stop for a dink on route once you are on the north side.
