At the end of the Zugertal valley, in the middle of the mountain range where the Lech originates, is the Formarinsee lake at an altitude of 1,793m. This high mountain lake is the start of the Lechweg trail and recently it has been crowned being the most beautiful spot in Austria.
In the ORF TV programme “9 Plätze – 9 Schätze” (9 places – 9 treasures) the majority of the audience voted for this spot on the Lechweg. Every year again, this lake forms from the melted snow and its outflow crosses the European watershed below the ground.
The emerald-green Formarinsee lake and the Rote Wand face towering above it are a unique nature landmark. The first stage of the Lechweg to Lech is something you shouldn’t miss out on.
