Lake Obernberg is a mountain lake located at 1,590 m a.s.l. in the Stubai Alps in Tyrol.
Lake Obernberg is a mountain lake located only a stone's throw from Obernberg am Brenner, near the Italian border. The lake covers an area of about 20 hectares and its water level is subject to fluctuations of up to 7 m. Lake Obernberg, featuring an excellent water quality, is fed by the subterranean Obernberger Seebach stream. It consists of two parts, which have been separated by a rock avalanche in prehistoric times. On rests of the rock slide the Maria am See chapel has been built, which is accessible via a bridge.
In order to preserve its water quality, bathing has been prohibited a considerable time ago and since 1935 Lake Obernberg is protected. What is particularly remarkable is its richness in fish: in the crystal clear water there are brook trouts, brown trouts, chars, rainbow trouts and many other fish. Fishing is forbidden here! For families Lake Obernberg, considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes of Tyrol, represents an attractive destination, as the hike to the lake is not too long.
Moreover you can enjoy hiking along one of the paths winding in the surroundings of the lake. Lake Obernberg can be best experienced in a rowboat. In winter, however, the 2 km long Lake Obernberg toboggan run starts near the lake.
