“Wow what a place to swim”
Review of Schwarzsee

Swam in the lake during our stay in Kitzbuhel, what an amazing place to swim. Great location, surrounded by the mountains. Great area to just relax and picnic, as well as a lovey walk round. Water is unexpectedly warm and you feel great when you get out. If you are in Kitzbuhel this is definitely a must.

I swam in the Shwarzee every day for a week leading up to the European Age Group Championships. The water was warm, although a little weedy and the setting delightful. My husband appreciated the cafe - although be warned, this is closed on Wednesdays

The Schwarzsee Lake can be walked around in 45 minutes or less and provides beautiful views across the water. There is a swimming area and several places to eat and drink overlooking the lake. A very pleasant half day excursion from Kitsbuhel.

Visited the lake because it was close to our hotel, so if you're staying nearby it's worth the walk. The lake is pretty small - a round trip takes about an hour - and you don't even need walking shoes because it's paved. The views are gorgeous and there are a couple water slides going right into the lake if you feel like swimming.
I was told by one of the locals that in winter they ice skate on the lake.

This lake is a 25 minute walk from Kitzbuhel. It is easy to find. There is a very pleasant pathway around the lake and also further routes in the adjacent woods. There is a good provision of seats for you to relax and a cafe if you wish to eat or drink. The lake is situated in a boggy area so you are recommended to stick to the pathways. At various points there are exercise areas should you wish to partake. This lake is worth a half-day visit.
