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. After approx. 200 m the beautifully laid out Ganghoferweg branches off to the right from the Gaistal. From there you follow the road into the Gaistal past the Igelsee to 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. You can go back the same way.
