Lake Schwarzsee has stunning walks, views and is a lovely place to swim. It is also good for kids as there is a play area and a small pool for very young children.

As well as bathing places and restaurants and lakeside hotels this is a very pleasant place to walk within easy reach from Kitzbuhel.

Quite a pleasant little "tarn" used for recreational bathing etc. Two areas which charge for access to lake and facilities but also has areas which can be accessed free from the woodland path walk or main car park area.

Very nice view, easy hiking around the lake, two good restaurants for a refreshing drink or small things to eat and a nice lido for swimming in a dark lake

A beautiful lake, with cool waters that allow for a dip after a sweaty walk. A pleasant stroll around, or a short bike ride - are all possible. One of my favorite destinations in the area.

This was my favourite swimming lake from our recent Austrian holiday, and it was up against some pretty stiff competition. It heats up very well to a nice temperature and is a decent size, making it perfect for a long swim. Beautiful setting with a...More

At the entrance to the lake there is access to the lake plus areas where you can have a picnic, however, all around the lake has spots you can picnic and access the lake quite easily. Beautiful place, enjoy!

Actually, from the town center, it is relatively flat, maybe a shallow incline, but not seriously "uphill". Kitzbühel also has wonderful sidewalks and paths that make any walk easy. It is 1.6 miles or 2.7km from the Museum... More
