Moderate hike of approx. 3 hours through orchards.

From Kaltern village (426 m) you can hike off the main roads to Lake Kaltern in just under 1 hour, but for most people the lake circuit alone will suffice. It begins in the area of the inns and car parks at the north-west corner of the lake (216 m); from there the circular hike (always M 2 and signposting “Seerundwanderung”) can be undertaken in either direction, but the counter-clockwise direction is perhaps more rewarding: on the initially asphalted, later unsurfaced road on the west side of the lake southwards to the group of houses of St. Josef, after crossing and a short walk along the road to St. Josef's. After crossing and briefly following the car road, take the old field path to the south-western corner of the lake, then take the asphalted footpath along the southern edge of the floodplain landscape over to the eastern side, there first briefly on the car road and then on the footpath running off to the north and finally briefly westwards again to the starting point.
