The smallest and most authentic of the four Kaiser towns is in a pristine nature setting closest to the foot of the mighty Wilder Kaiser mountain range and furthest away from the federal road, yet still easily accessible. Lake Hintersteinersee is a stunningly beautiful, crystal-clear mountain lake where you can soak up the sun or enjoy a refreshing swim. The walk around the lake takes about 1.5 hours and is absolutely fabulous.
In the winter, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and ski mountaineering are some of the activities you can have fun with in Scheffau. Thanks to its close proximity to the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental, Scheffau makes an ideal base from which to explore Austria’s largest lift-linked ski area with over 280 kilometers of slopes.
