The tour

Above the Kaltenbachalm, at the sharp road bend, is a small parking lot. From there the path leads over the stream and then in many serpentines up to the first Kaltenbach lake. To the Alpenrosenblüte the slopes are a single sea of flowers, also the yellow gentian can be found here. Above the tree line the path leads over a long slope up to the upper Kaltenbachsee. Walking time a little more than 1 hour. This lake has a clear alpine character, but is a wonderful place to stay. However, the next destinations are no less attractive: on the left bank ridge it goes steeply up again over a rocky spur into a small cirque, of course also with a little lake, which in early summer is very charmingly surrounded by yellow marsh marigolds.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Kaltenbach bend past the Unteren Kaltenbachsee and on to the Mittlerer Kaltenbachsee, a little steeper uphill to the Oberer Kaltenbachsee.
