Rifflsee is a lake of Tyrol, Austria. It is the largest lake in the Ötztal Alps. The mountain lake is located in the Kaunergrat west of the Pitztal and is a typical moraine reservoir. The lake fills an extensive valley, the glacier-turbid water looks greenish. It is framed in the north and west by rugged peaks of the Kaunergrat, particularly striking are Seekogel and Rostizkogel. In sunny and warm weather, a considerable amount of melt water is supplied by the Seekarles, Loch, and Rifflferner.Arrange to visit Rifflsee and other attractions in St. Leonhard im Pitztal using our St. Leonhard im Pitztal trip itinerary maker.

The lake itself is pretty large (right after you take the cablecar upwards - 15 euro 1 way). Its a flat walk around it (prob 45 min) and you can take a raft tour on that lake, which we didnt. Pretty..... more »
We spent a lovely sunny afternoon in St Leonhard, Austria taking the Pitztaler Gletscherbahn gondola cable car to Rifflsee lake. The gondola ride was great value at 19.50 euros for the return trip... more »
The lake is amazing, but impressions were bad due to a floating staff. Me and my friends were sitting (we didnt know it was a boat) and without any announcement the boat was going away. And only after that lady was asking for payment. We asked to go out because we werent announced about s trip and price and didnt have enough of cash (they use only cash) and time for the trip. But the lady started to scream and was very rude. Afterwards she was discussing us with other passengers which is not intelligent and not appropriate. Very rude. Never waste time on a service like this!
Beautiful family walk around an emerald green lake.
