From the resident area Glaswald to the Glaswaldsee. The shortest route to get to the legendary Glaswaldsee. Therefore, the short hike is also ideal for families.
From the residental area Glaswald parking lot, wide paths lead up to the Glaswaldsee, which especially in summer offers refreshment for tired hiker's legs. But be careful, the hiking trail is short but overcomes a few meters in altitude. The ascent is definitely worth it and the circumnavigation of the lake on deep-rooted paths, past small picnic areas, is an experience. The easy hike is particularly recommended for families with small children, but is not suitable for strollers. A small resting hut and great benches invite you to linger.
Pack a small backpack with snacks, there are nice resting places at the lake.
