Nature Reserve Weitsee

Swim in crystal-clear water – An adventure in a beautiful natural setting for the young and old!

Too good to be true? No!

Our natural reserve between Reit im Winkl and Ruhpolding will charm you with three natural lakes and magical surroundings: Enjoy Weitsee, Mittersee and Lödensee.


Take a dip in lake Weitsee – a beautiful and idyllic lake in the middle of the reserve, surrounded by mountains, with an almost mystical atmosphere. Crystal-clear (potable!) water and stunning sunsets at the lake make for a summer day extraordinaire.


How to get there:
By car: Route B 305 from Reit im Winkl to Ruhpolding. You’ll find lake Weitsee to your right.
By bus: Regional transit, exit at Weitsee.
By bike: About 45 minutes via Dürrfeldkreuz and Seegatterl, with steep passages.


Between Weitsee and Mittersee with only a few walking minutes to the lake.


Bathing season:
Swimming from May/June, depending on temperatures.


Free access to the lakes. Please note:

There are no restaurants or kiosks. Make sure to bring beverages and snacks for a full day of summer.
