It is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Tyrol and lies idyllically in a valley basin, in the middle of the impressive Rofan Mountains. From there you have a fantastic view of the Rofanstock with the mighty Rofan tower as an eye-catcher. There are various ways to hike the beautiful Zireiner See - the tours are demanding, but you will be rewarded with fantastic views. Along the tour you can get refreshments at rustic snack stations and mountain huts. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

The Lake Zirein legend: „Clay from Lake Zirein“

Once there was a shepherd living close to the lake. He wanted to renovate his hut and therefore needed some clay. Suddenly a little man came and ordered him to get some clay from behind the hut. The shepherd knew the area very well and had never found a bit of clay there. He was a bit surprised, but he did what he was asked and really found a lot of clay. He could not only repair his house but also was able to build a new stove.
And the next morning another surprise was waiting for the shepherd. The walls and the stove had turned into gold. The shepherd tried to find more clay, but he wasn't successful any more - "the golden earth" was gone for good.

Enough storytelling for now – visit Lake Zirein and feel the special energy and vibes radiating from this natural gem.
