Here in Tyrol an alpine summer is a bright, warm and wonderful experience. Visitors can also choose to trek in the shade and pristine air of steep valleys, up on mountain pastures, and sit back and soak up the atmosphere and marvellous views. There are several local lakes offering a refreshing dip on hotter days. Dreamy vistas of the surrounding alpine scenery are embedded in deep green forests, juicy verdant pastures, and all under a spotless bright blue sky – a recipe for a perfect day on any vacation!
Tyrol is best known for its myriad trekking trails and mountain-bike routes, but numerous lakes in the area promise instant refreshment for active guests. After a tiring hike they’re the perfect place to dangle your legs and cool down, or to simply spend the whole day in and by the water. As well as the chance to swim in the lakes there are plenty of walks to be enjoyed in the picturesque surrounding scenery. Some lakes offer pedal boats or trending sports like stand-up paddling, and various other activities suitable for kids make these places particularly interesting for families.
Lakes for swimming and a wide range of leisure activities guarantee exactly the variety holidaymakers seek!
Only about 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel, just above Mösern, lies the Möserer See lake. It's an idyllic place in the forest, nestled in a rocky trough padded with moraine debris. It is 1,292m above sea level and up to 11m deep, it is located in a nature reserve, so the alpine roses blossom near the shore and it serves as a breeding ground for a wide variety of water birds. But you’re also still allowed to swim there as it’s considered one of the warmest lakes in Tyrol. A walk around the lake takes about 45 minutes, and the Möserer Seestuben invite you to have a snack in between!
Lottensee Lake is about 45m walking distance from the hotel (but also accessible by car). Together with Wildmoossee Lake, which is located a little further on, they represent a unique natural phenomenon in our region. The fact that these two lakes form out of nowhere is called a “periodic” natural phenomenon. It results from an interplay of water levels in the underground water systems due to spring precipitation and snowmelt. Often the lakes disappear after spring, but in some years the water level continues to rise after the melt. Then the lakes remain all summer until they suddenly run dry in autumn. So we can’t guarantee that the lake will actually be there during your visit with us!
The Seefelder Wildsee Lake is considered to have given its name to the settlement of “Sevelt” – Feld am See, which was first mentioned in a document in 1022. Today it continues to contribute to the beauty of the Seefeld plateau and is a popular swimming lake with no less than two beach facilities (Strandperle + Waldschwimmbad Sonja). Wildsee Lake is also a popular destination for a walk. Level paths invite you to take a leisurely stroll for about an hour. Enjoy nature and discover the denizens of the forest!
