Lake Mölssee

Lake Mölssee is situated in the district of Innsbruck Land and is one of the largest lakes located at this altitude.

The mountain lake Mölssee, beside Lake Lichtsee one of the largest lakes located at this altitude, is situated in the district of Innsbruck Land in the so-called Wattentaler Lizum, the east end of the Wattental valley. The lake is characterised by crystal clear water, containing a great deal of carp and trout species. The homonymous river Mölsbach, which also features drinking water quality, represents the runoff of the lake.

Lake Mölssee, 200 metres long and 55 metres wide, can only be reached on foot, but it’s not always accessible, as it is located in restricted area. However, the ascent to the lake follows rather steep terrain, but the beautiful surroundings compensate the exhausting walk.

A jump into the lake is a rather coolish experience in the true sense of the word, as also in hot summer months water temperature does not exceed 16 degrees. For this reason swimming is reserved for the toughest under the sun!
