The small picturesque lake known as the Kaltwassersee is no great secret anymore. Thanks to its scenic location, it has become a popular destination for day-trippers and photographers alike. This delightful little reservoir is just a few hundred metres down from the middle station at the Rosshütte and is easily accessible. Whether you are enjoying a day’s hiking or an e-bike tour, you should definitely take the chance to make a break and cool off at the Kaltwassersee.
Although swimming is not allowed in the lake, you can sunbathe and relax on one of the many benches there. When the surrounding mountain peaks are reflected in the crystal-clear water and you have the Hochegg Alm within walking distance for some welcome refreshments, you will have to agree that you have found that perfect holiday moment.
The lake also provides a lovely photo opportunity in winter, with its location right beside the ski run, and the reservoir supplies the water for the snow cannons in the Rosshütte ski area.
