The hiking circuit around the Kummersee near Corvara/Rabenstein is easily negotiated and highly worthwhile. Enshrouded in legend, the lake in the Upper Passeiertal Valley combines the splendour of the terrain with the enjoyment of hiking and an appreciation of history. In the summer months, it takes only 2.5 hours to circumvent this former lake basin situated at an altitude of 1,340 m, with an elevation gain of 350 m. Sturdy footwear and thermal, weatherproof clothing is a necessity. Be sure to always stay updated on the current weather and forecast, as well as snow conditions. The eight didactic stations along the lake route help to illustrate the story and peculiarities of these waters and surrounding territory.

Tip: Free folder "Kummersee-Rundweg" in the information offices of the valley available.

Turn-by-turn directions

Explore the evolution of the Kummersee Lake: from the "Mooseum" bunker museum to the gates of the village of Moso/Moos at an altitude of 1,007 m, follow the E5 route along trail no. 43 around the lake. You can hike across the valley basin beyond Corvara/Rabenstein in 1.5 hours. The trail veers off to the left and leads to the fascinating ruins of the old "Seehof" farmstead. Follow the short route from the Seehof ruins to Corvara and encircle the lake path, before entering the valley back to Corvara at 1,410 m. Along the route there are a number of useful info panels worth looking at. Return to Moso back along the same route.
