Hiking Lünersee (Lüner Lake)

This unbelievable beautiful Austrian mountain lake with its altitude of 1970 m and right at the border with Switzerland makes it a great hiking destination. The colours of the lake are fantastic, no photoshop is needed to make the lake as greenish as one would want.

How To Access

The biggest city near the Lünersee Lake is Bludenz. Continue the road to the town called Brand and then drive all the way up to the place called Schattenlagand. There is (as usual) a cable car available with the ticket cost of ca. 8 EUR one way. Please note, the cable car operates until mid of October only. If you want to sweat a bit, then check out the next section about the hiking possibilities.

Hiking Trails

The ones with itchy feet can hike 1 hour or let's say 1 hour 30 min to the top to admire the Lüner Lake. Once there, take the path around the lake (1 hour 30 or 2 hours) or ascend to one of the nearby peaks such as Gaffaljoch (+1 hour).

When To Go

The Lüner Lake is a well accessible lake with an incredibly picturesque scenery. We visited the lake in the beginning of October which was probably already a bit too late due to all the freezing cold and snow. However, try not to go there in the middle of the summer as it gets very crowded. Put it on your bucket list for September or April, let's say. To sum up, this lake is one of the spots in the Austrian mountains you should visit asap, no doubt.
