Nature Reserve Lake Koppenwinkl

Obertraun, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Lake Koppenwinkl and the surrounding area is a natural reserve since 1978! Surrounded by green riparian forest, the lake is a place to relax and breathe.

Nature reserve in Obertraun

This small but deep lake with steep rocky sides is one of the most romantic and impressive sights in the area. A path from the Koppenwinklalm mountain pasture leads you in a westerly direction to the "Bundessportschule" - a sports training centre. The walk takes about an hour, and you pass the "Buehlerbach" stream and the so-called "Ebnersteg". Following this "Ebnersteg", Reith, the highest part of Obertraun, can be reached in around 15 minutes.

Details are included in hiking guides of the area!
