We used to come to Hintersee when our children were very young, came back and it has not changed much in that time. Crystal clear waters, good place for a 45 minute flat walk.

We enjoyed a lovely 45 minute walk around the lake. Absolutely stunning scenery with many places to stop and admire the view. Less touristy then kongisee, a nice afternoon walk.

I am from Austria and I’m used to mountains and lakes, but this lake is particularly beautiful. It’s a lake straight out from a fairy tale. I was impressed from the first moment on – the color of the water, the mountains surrounding the lake,...More

We travelled with our dog to the hintersee for a family walk. There were plenty of car parks around the lake located relatively close to the lake and it's services which included restaurants, toilets and boat rentals. The land around the lake was well kept...More

Absolutely. If you either drive in or go on the local bus from Berchtesgaden it is really beautiful. There is an adequate pathway for pushchairs if that is what you have right around the lake. There are eating places. There... More
