There's no need for experienced anglers to give up their hobby in the winter. If you're not deterred by the freezing cold, you can put your patience to the test, despite the thick sheet of ice.
Away from the chaos of everyday life, those seeking peace and quiet will certainly find their winter paradise on the frozen Hinterstockensee. Surrounded by snow-covered mountain peaks and above the thick blanket of fog, catch fish from a self-drilled ice hole just like the Inuits.
Access to the lake is at your own risk.
