Route: Car Park Leutasch Salzbach – Forest road untill Lake Igelsee – Alpine Hut Seebenalm - hut Coburgerhütte - Lake Drachensee
Nature jewel: The Gaistal and the lake Seebensee
In 2017 this little paradise was voted the most beautiful place in Tyrol in the tv-show 9 places, 9 treasures. The Gaistal has a length of approx. 16 km and is starting point for many beautiful tours, which all branch off from this valley.
The panoramic and only slightly ascending forest path starts at the Salzbach car park and runs along the river Leutascher Ache, passing the huts Gaistal- & Tillfussalm to the lake Seebensee. The last kilometer is steep and partly on coarse gravel. Therefore we recommoned to park the bike at the Seebenalm.
Then it goes steeper uphill to the Seebensee. This crystal clear lake with its Caribbean colours invites you to cool off. After the refreshment it leads further 40 walking minutes very steeply up to the Coburgerhütte. From there you have a breathtaking view of the Seebensee and the Zugspitze. Next to the Coburgerhütte, another natural jewel awaits you, the lake Drachensee.
