The Schlegeisspeicher reservoir is fed by the mountain streams Zamserbach, Schlegeisbach and Riepenbach. It lies at an altitude of 1900 m and its waters reflect the surrounding mountains and glaciers Schlegeiskees and Furtschaglkees.

Ahornspitze

We begin our journey through the Zillertal and end in the town of Hippach. There is a really wonderful view of the Ahornspitze from here. This time the mountain welcomes us with the first morning rays of the sun.

Schlegeisspeicher

From Mayrhofen, a bus takes us along a mountain road to the dam of the Schlegeisspeicher reservoir. The hour's journey is full of serpentines and at the end we also dig into the tunnels.

Riepenbach

One of the water sources of the reservoir is this stream, flowing down from the southern slopes of the ski paradise above Hintertux.

We continue along the western edge of the water area along Wanderweg 502 towards the glaciers.

Waterfall

The source of the waterfall on the opposite bank is water flowing from the interior of the earth.
