We used to come to Hintersee when our children were very young, came back and it has not changed much in that time. Crystal clear waters, good place for a 45 minute flat walk.

We enjoyed a lovely 45 minute walk around the lake. Absolutely stunning scenery with many places to stop and admire the view. Less touristy then kongisee, a nice afternoon walk.

I am from Austria and I’m used to mountains and lakes, but this lake is particularly beautiful. It’s a lake straight out from a fairy tale. I was impressed from the first moment on – the color of the water, the mountains surrounding the lake,...More
