boating on Lake Pillersee

The green way

To get to the mountain lakes

The most convenient and environmentally friendly way to explore the region’s mountain lakes is by hopping on an e-bike. Guests can hire e-bikes for a small fee from the hotel. Our well-maintained Mondraker offer a big battery boost, opening up the high mountains to riders of all fitness levels.

Pillersee & Wiesensee lakes

This ride is perfect for e-bikers with little experience. Follow the cycling path slightly uphill to Hochfilzen. From there, continue until you reach the Wiesensee lake after approximately one hour of riding. Another lake, the Pillersee, is located a little further on. Both lakes offer wonderful bathing. Refresh and re-energise yourself before either making your way directly back to the hotel or taking a little detour to include some sections of the  Buchensteinwandrunde ride . This ride can also be combined with a stop at the Grießner Almen mountain huts.

Lake Ritzensee

Another easy bike ride leads to the Ritzensee lake in Saalfelden. Take the cycling path along the flat valley floor for 45 minutes until you reach the lake. A more challenging alternative is the Gunzi Trail in Leogang, or take a detour to the Biberg mountain with its stunning views of Saalfelden. With the Saalfelden Leogang Card, your free guest pass, you enjoy free entry to the Ritzensee lake.

Wildsee lake

Ready for a bike and hike adventure? Get on your e-bike and make your way to Fieberbrunn. Shortly after you’ve passed Hochfilzen, take the turn signposted "Gasthof Eiserne Hand". Follow the uphill forest road past the Lärchenfilzhochalm hut until you reach the Wildalm hut. There it is time to park your e-bike and continue on foot. A one-hour hike then takes you to the picturesque Wildsee lake. If you still have some energy left, you can venture even higher and climb one of the nearby mountains. In just 30 minutes you can conquer either the Wildseeloder mountain (2,117 metres) or the Henne mountain (2,078 metres).

Asitz reservoir

The Asitz mountain towers over our hotel to the south, promising mountain refreshment on hot summer days. It can be accessed by bike via the forest road through the Schwarzleotal valley to the Forsthofalm hut and on to the mid-way station of the Asitzbahn cable car. A little above the station you will find the reservoir. Take a look around, be amazed by the views of the Steinberge mountains and don’t forget to treat your feet to a Kneipp session. If you’re up for some downhill biking action, you can drop into the Bikepark Leogang’s Hangman II trail running from the lift station directly back to the hotel.

Zeller See lake

This ride requires one and a half hours of easy pedalling through the valley from Leogang via Saalfelden to Zell am See. The destination of this short but very rewarding ride is the Zeller See, the largest lake in the Pinzgau region. Refresh yourself in the cool, clear waters of the lake and soak up the sun on the shore of this gorgeous mountain jewel.

Prinzensee lake, natrun

The first section along the cycling path from Leogang to Saalfelden is the perfect warm-up for what is to come. At the foot of the Steinernes Meer mountains, you can choose between the demanding Ramseiden-Runde ride with 650 metres of elevation gain or the easier ride to Maria Alm. Continue onto the paved road and then onto the gravel path to the Natrunbahn mountain station. From here, it’s just a few minutes of walking to the picturesque Prinzensee lake. Descend on the two-kilometre Flow One Trail, which promises easy downhill fun as it winds its way 285 vertical metres down the mountain. 

Spend a memorable summer holiday in Leogang and dive into the fascinating world of the local mountain lakes. Their waters are waiting to refresh you.
