Lake Schwarzsee

This hike starts at the tourist office in Oberndorf. Follow Lindenweg to the junction at Kreuzgasse. Walk through the residential area to Hartsteinwerk Kitzbühel. Follow the federal road for a short stretch until you get to a side road. Take the side road to the hamlet of Schmiedboden where you keep to the right. The trail takes you through snow-covered pastures and past frosted trees to the old farmhouses on the Bichlach plateau. The hike continues past Gieringer Weiher pond where you can often see ducks soaking up the winter rays. Continue through a charming little neighborhood of Kitzbühel to pristine Lake Schwarzsee from where you enjoy superb views of the Kitzbüheler Horn, the Wilder Kaiser and, of course, Schwarzsee, Tirol’s largest moor lake. The hike continues along the shore for a little bit, past restaurants and inns and then makes a left towards Steuerberg, where a restaurant with a beautiful sundeck makes a great place to catch some sun. Continue towards Oberndorf and St. Johann in Tirol along a pretty trail that affords great views of the Kitzbüheler Horn and the Wilder Kaiser. Back at Hartsteinwerk follow Josef Hager Straße to the center of Oberndorf.
