Lake Berglsteiner is located in the Kufsteiner Land area between Kramsach and Breitenbach am Inn.
Lake Berglsteiner has got a maximum water depth of 2 metres and is located between Kramsach and Breitenberg am Inn at the southern slopes of the Voldöppberg mountain. In this area, in the so-called “Kramsacher Seengebiet”, there are also several further lakes such as the Frauensee, Krummsee and Reintaler lakes. Lake Berglsteiner is located above, in a rather hidden position in a hollow.
By the way, there is a legend regarding this lake: the lake is located at the foot of the ruins of Castle Gückenbühl. Once upon a time there was a knight in this castle and he had a beautiful daughter. She fell in love with a poor hunter who, according to her father, was inappropriate. For this reason the knight had the hunter expelled from the castle by his dogs. The hunter fell into the lake and drowned. Obviously the daughter was terribly sad and often visited the lake in remembrance of her beloved hunter. One day the deathly pale hunter appeared in the waves of the lake and called his beloved. With an outcry, the knight’s daughter jumped into the waves. Still today, two stone isles, forever united, stand out in the lake…
In summer months, Lake Berglsteiner is a popular lake for bathing. At the lakeside, there is a restaurant with café, which also hosts seminars and celebrations. Moreover you can also go hiking to the lake: starting point for this tour is the parking space at the eastern end of lake Reintaler. On a length of 1.8 km, it takes along a forested road, also ideal for “off-road” prams, ending at the lakeside of Lake Berglsteiner. In a 15-minutes’ walk you can by the way surround the lake on foot.
