  • From the starting point parking lot Obernberger See you hike about 45 min. steadily up to the Obernberger Lakes. Nature lovers can expect an impressive spectacle of colours of turquoise water, intense green meadows, dark forests in front of beautiful mountain scenery. A circular walk around the lakes is completed in a comfortable 90 min., the way back to the parking lot in about 30 min. The hike lasts a total of about 3 hours and is also suitable for "beginners".
