    The Ehrenberg, Schlosskopf,Klause and Fort Cla

    Schlosskopf
    2 more images

    There are several castles and remains in Reutte. The Klause is a kind of gatehouse below the Ehrenberg. It used to have a gasthaus there. We did not go this year but got talking to someone who mentioned visiting the museum there, so it may be fairly different from our last visit.

    The Klause and Erhenberg host a mediaeval festival each July. There is music, food, people in mediaeval costumes, exhibitions of craft etc.

    The Ehrenberg ruins are worth the climb and there are good views from there.
    Schlosskopf is high up and while it is worth seeing and the views are great. It is quite a trek. We have only been to it once.

    Fort Claudia - we have not visited yet.

    The Plansee and Heiterwangersee

    The Plansee
    4 more images

    You can walk to these lakes from Reutte by continuing on past the waterfalls. It is around another 30/40 minutes from the waterfalls to the Plansee lake. I love the walk along the lakes' edges from the Plansee to the Heiterwangersee with their steep mountains and clear blue waters. At the Plansee there is a kiosk for snacks and drinks, a gasthaus for meals and a grassy area where you can sunbathe between swims. There is a boat which can take you from the Plansee to the Heiterwangersee. From Heiterwang you can walk back to Reutte in a couple of hours or, if you are feeling lazy, take the train. At the Heiterwangersee you can take an icy dip. There is a campsite by the lake and a gasthaus. The town of Heiterwang is around 15 minutes walk from the lake. Heiterwang has a lovely church.

    The stuibenfalle waterfalls

    The waterfalls.
    2 more images

    These waterfalls are about 30 minutes walk from the centre of Reutte in the direction of Muhl. Nowadays you get there by walking along the side of the electricity works. It looks like it will be horrible, then you are past the works and surrounded by beautiful Alpine scenery. There are several falls. The smaller ones are near each other. The bigger one is further on and nowadays it normally has people on some sort of outward bound course leaping in from the cliff above the waterfall's pool. The pools the waterfalls flow into are swimmable but ice cold. In our youth we used to take a dip in one for around 30 seconds at the start of our holiday in order to make all the other lakes seem warm by comparison.

    Walk to Hofen via Wangle or take the bus from Reutte and you can take the cable car up to the Alpine garden. The views from the top are lovely. I'll have to scan photos later as we did not do it this time.

    The Frauensee

    by IreneMcKay Updated Jul 27, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Frauensee.

    To get to this lovely mountain lake, walk from Reutte to Lechashau then head towards Wangle. Before Wangle head off to the right. It is signposted. There is a steep route to the lake up a hill or a gentler route up the road. There is a new gasthaus by the lake. There were signs up this year saying you have to pay for a swim. This has not been the case in the last few years. We did not pay and no-one asked us to. I think they were not expecting anyone to be mad enough to swim on the dull day we went.

    Swim in the Urisee

    by IreneMcKay Updated Jul 27, 2012

    The Urisee

    The Urisee is a lovely lake that can be reached on foot from the centre of Reutte in around 30 minutes. Head in the direction of Muhl. This lovely lake is wonderful for a cold swim. Or if you are not brave enough, you can walk around and enjoy the scenery. The Urisee Gasthaus next to the lake is available for food and drink. It's very pleasant.

    Climb the Durrenberger Alm

    The Durrenberger Alm
    We have climbed up to the heutte on this alm many times, but it is getting more difficult as we get older and less fit. The climb is steep, hard work but lovely. The views from the heutte are stunning and we usually celebrate our arrival with beer for hubby and buttermilk for me. Check next to the Urisee to see when ruhetag (closed day) is so you won't be disappointed.

    We did not have the time or energy to do this this trip, so I will have to scan a photo in when I am back in HK.

    Visit colorful old center

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reutte

    Reutte's center is made of typical Tyrolean houses where the window frames are painted
    in old patterns which are very picturesque indeed. Strolling through the little town center
    is a nice experience you should not miss out.

    Climbing up Ehrenburg

    Reutte

    Ehrenburg is a castle that was built with other castles in the surrounding area by the Stauffer Dynasty in the Middle Ages as a defense to the Bavarian tribes. It's a lovely place to walk on the hill, you enjoy a splendid view over Reutte and the mountains, mixed with a piece of Middle Age history in the form of ruins.
