On the shores of Lake Haldensee, located in the component locality of Haller, there’s the “Wasserwelt Haldensee” bathing establishment

Altitude: 1,136 m a.s.l.

Nesselwängle with its component localities Rauth, Schmitte and Haller is located at the entrance of the Tannheimer Valley. The sunny hamlet of Rauth was planned at the beginning of the 20th century as a mountain health resort with a sanatorium. It has never been realized, but already in advance it got the name "Little Meran", referring to the spa town of Merano with its thermal bath.

In Middle Ages, the salt transport from Hall across the Tannheimer Valley to Lake Constance was of particular importance for Nesselwängle. Today, it is a cosy holiday village offering plenty of leisure time activities. Many trails snake up to the Tannheimer Mountains, as not for nothing the Tannheimer Valley was declared twice Austria's "Hiking destination of the Year" in the last years. Another reason is the alpine flora with its 1,200 diverse species, resulting in a unique natural landscape. Furthermore, the valley is highly appreciated by cyclists and hang-gliders.

In Haller at Lake Haldensee (1,124 m a.s.l.) you can relax: The water of the "Wasserwelt Haldensee" offers utmost pleasant water temperatures thanks to a solar plant. In winter, however, the lake transforms into an ice skating and curling ground. Further infrastructures and the fact, that Haller is one of the most sunniest and most sheltered settlements of the valley, earned it the name "Little Nice". For skiers and snowboarders, there is the Nesselwängle Skiing Area high above the village.
