Ödseen Lakes - nature preserve area
Right by the inn "Gasthof Jagersimmerl", turn left into the beautiful, idyllic Hetzau valley, where the two lakes are also located. These two romantic natural lakes are regarded as popular hiking and excursion destinations. Please note that the two lakes are an absolute nature reserve and are privately owned.
The access by bike or car (buses excluded) is possible to the Almtalerhaus inn (15 km from the village center) from 1st of May till 15th of September. After a leisurely short hike you will first reach the small and then the big Ödsee (circular hike).
You can also take advantage of the offer of the hiking taxi (Wandertaxi) from the "Bergsteigerdorf" Grünau in the Almtal, which takes you in the period from the 1st May up to mid of September on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays from the train station Grünau in the Almtal (connection by train from Wels, Linz) to the Almtalerhaus. Return trip € 8,00 / person
Please only park in the designated parking spaces and do not block driveways to forest roads, as forestry work and timber transport take place here.
