“A hidden gem next to Ramsau”

Zauberwald and Hintersee
Ranked #727 of 2,971 things to do in Bavaria
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Just a few minuets drive from Ramsau, there's this beautiful small lake, surrounded by mountains, a forest and a clear-water flow of the Klausbach river.

You can park your car just next to the lake. We did that in Seeklause (standard parking fees apply) and go to a walk in this area. There are few trails that start next to this point, some go alongside the freezing water of Klausbach river, which turnes into Ramsauer Ache when going through Ramsau town.

Hintersee is surrounded by a lovely trail, that will accommodate kids and strollers as well. You can go into the water, rent a small wooden boat or just enjoy a hike or a picnic.

My wife and I took the bus from Berchtesgaden (about 40 minutes) to Hintersee and walked around the lake.

The walk is easy, about 3km long, along a good path that is mostly level and follows the lake shore all the way around.There are public toilets at the Hintersee village end as well as a couple of guesthouses.

There is a large guesthouse overlooking the lake with outside tables and a large canopy about 150m beyond the final bus stop with a 'New York' cafe which we went into for hot drinks which were excellent. The food looked extremely good and I would recommend giving this place a go.

The scenery was spectacular. The lake is amazingly coloured with good views of various peaks around. The woods and surrounding alpine meadows make this a special place and worth 2 or 3 hours. We were very glad to have done this trip even in the heavy rain.
