a beautiful place to relax or exercise at
Sep 2019
I've been to this place many times since I was 6 and this last visit showed marked improvements in paths and conservation of the surrounding land.

There is a walking path that goes right around and in some places lends itself to some pretty spectacular scenery and a photographers dream. You can also see many wildlife including ducks and swans. In the right time of the year you can even swim in the lake.

You can also bike ride there and have a meal or a drink at the local hotel there which has been recently renovated. There is also a gym visit and areas to sunbaked and fun playgrounds for children, including mini golf near by.

A favourite spot of mine ...
Aug 2017
Somewhat tiny but quite special water near the town centre of Saalfelden. Good place for swimming in summer, skating in winter and hiking all the year round. Very good restaurants nearby. Great gym with sauna and access to water. Schloss (Castle) Ritzen, with excellent local museum.

Easy walk around the little lake. From the upper side of the walk you have a good view over the surrounding mountains.

Low level walk, if you need to rest your legs from the mountain hiking ...

A small lake that would not take long to walk around, but you can extend by 6 km with a walk in the woods and villages towards Pfaffing. Very pleasant,

Walk around this lake and enjoy the mountain scenery!
Jun 2015
A small, comfy lake with a great view of the mountains. A walk around the lake takes about half an hour. Swimming is possible. There's a museum "Heimatmuseum" on the shore, where you can find out more about the history of the area, admire a model of the city and its mountainous surroundings (made by high school students), and see the famous creches by Alexander „Xandi“ Schläffer.

It's a place in Saalfelden that I visit because of the great memories I have of my sons wedding photos being taken here. A nice walk around the lake and good place for a picnic.

We travelled from Zell am See on bus #260 return for driver gave us a " day run about day ticket " one adult = €6.65 this allowed you to travel in each direct by bus < > train about 20 minutes by bus or 9minutes by train ,. Bus stop station between old and new part of town. Walked around and up to lake then through woods back to station . Good dry day and very pleasant town /shops/places to eat / and walks. Rail station to one side of town about 15-20 minutes walk from centre .

Beautiful little lake at the fringe of Saalfelden
Jul 2014 • Couples
The Ritzensee is a beautiful little lake at the fringe of Saalfelden. A walk around the lake is definitely recommended because it gives you panoramic views in all directions. It also serves a a place to swim, but although it is said that the water quality is good, we were hesitant to go for a swim because the water looks quite murky. While in the area, one should also walk up to the Aussichtswarte. It gives you even more panoramic views in into all four valleys and its surroundings.
