The heavenly hues of the Nidersee...

Follow the leisurely hike along the Leitschachbach and discover the Leitschach landscape, strongly characterised as it is by alpine farming. The steep climb to Lake Nidersee is quickly forgotten when you reach its shore, due to the intense and fascinating shades of blue in its waters. From the Nidersee it is only a short distance to the well-deserved beer in the Leutschachhütte.
