    Hintersteineresee

    Me and my folks by Hintersteinersee

    Hintersteineresee is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the Tyrol. The lake measures some 56 hectares and is up to 36 m deep, the crystal clear waters of this lake make it popular for bathing and reflection picture hunting opportunities for me!
    Hope to get a better pic of this soon)

    Moorsee

    Moorsee

    The Moorsee is a little bathing lake in an idyllic spot just near the centre of Soll - the next village along from Scheffau. From the centre of Soll go right at the mini golf course pass it and take the road that goes up through the forest to the small lake. Should only take about 15 mins to reach it. The moorland lake with the wilder kaiser emperor mountains in the background supposedly makes for a popular reflection pic. Alas I have yet to gret a decent reflection here ;-(

    Update: Well in May 2004 I DID manage a better reflection - if you want you can see it on my Soell page :-))

    Scheffau

    Scheffau, just a few kilometers down the valley from Ellmau, is the smallest of the mountain villages beneath the Kaiser mountain range. Its farmhouses and districts are scattered on sunny terraces and hills and a popular walk is to the beautiful lake Hintersteinersee where there are even more hiking options.

    pilgrim chapel Scheffau

    This pretty pilgrimage chapel is opposite the Gasthof Barnstatt near lake Hintersteiner in Scheffau, the neighbouring village to Ellmau. This quaint baroque chapel, dating from 1693, can be reached within an hours walk from the town centre. The chapel is consecrated to the "Sacred Heart", and Saint Leonhard, patron saint of pets and prisoners.
