In a wonderful setting, whenever winds are calm it serves up the most beautiful reflections imaginable. If you stand on the south shore, you are treated to an amazing reflection of the south face of the Dachstein Massif! The colors are spectacular from mid June on, when the rhododendron come into full bloom (Rhododendron Festival), delightful summer scenery in July and August, while the golden-yellow larches of October bring us magnificent contrasts.
We are but a short climb from the Obersee, a small Ice-Age tarn, picturesquely and peacefully nestled in the rearmost cirque at the foot of the Rippetegg and Pichler Schober. Magnificent panoramic views of the Dachstein and Bischofsmütze.
Well maintained alpine hiking trail.
