Lake Wildsee - Reither Moor
Lake Wildsee with the respective natural reserve Reither Moor at the western lakeside is located in the south of Seefeld.
Already in 1022 a “Sevelt”, which means a field at the lake, was mentioned, which has probably referred to Lake Wildsee. In the period of the Emperor Maximilian, the lake used to be mainly for fishing purposes. The lake moreover gave the name to the village of Seefeld (lake/field) and is today one of the most popular destinations in the Olympic region of Seefeld.
At its lakeside, there are two lidos, which are popular meeting points. The water temperatures rise up to 20 degrees C, which means that a jump into these waters represents a real refreshment on hot summer days. The lido “Strandperle” with restaurant, moreover, offers a heated outdoor pool, a children’s pool, a large children’s playground, a beach volley field, fitting rooms and fun kayaks. However, the forest pool provides a roofed panoramic terrace, a lawn for sunbathing, a beach café, a children’s playground, leisure time activities and fitting rooms. From Seefeld you can also combine a visit to the lake with a pleasant promenade round Lake Wildsee. Start in the pedestrian zone and walk towards the lake promenade!
At the western lakeside, there is an area of 3 hectares that has been protected since 1926. Next to the Scharnitz road, there is a parking space, where a trail starts and proceeds to the natural reserve Reither Moor. The flora of this high moor comprises creeping willows and peat bogs as well as dwarf-pines. What makes this area so special is also the sundew, which is a carnivorous plant. By the way, in the surroundings, there are two more lakes. On the one hand Lake Weidachsee in Leutasch, and on the other hand Lake Möserer at the Wildmoos plateau, which is venue for a natural phenomenon: every few years, on the meadows, two lakes (Lake Wildmoos and Lake Lottensee) arise, in order to disappear in autumn.
