The Wildensee is a mountain lake in the Totes Gebirge in the Salzkammergut. It is located at about 1535 meters above sea level in Styria at the foot of the Rinnerkogel. The lake has its name, therefore, that the region in the Inner Totes Gebirge was formerly hunt-free, and therefore was called “wild”.
For the ascent to the Wildensee you start at the lower Offensee over the Rinnerhütte. You should take some time for this trip. The climb takes about three hours. However, the effort is more than rewarded with fantastic views of the mountains in the Alps.
