Destination for families and nature lovers
Above Mels lies the idyllic lake Chapfen at 1,030 m above sea level and is a popular destination for hikers, bikers, families and fishermen. Lake Chapfen is also popular with fishermen, as it offers a good stock of rainbow trout. The lake is easily accessible by car, by bike or on foot. A path leads around the lake. Here you can also find several fireplaces with wood supplies. Lake Chapfen is actually a reservoir, but hardly recognizable as such. It is beautifully embedded in a protected nature reserve. On a hike around the lake, one discovers not only the worthwhile viewpoint at Chapfenstein with a view of the valley of Seez but also an original moor landscape.

From Mels you ascend over the stunningly beautiful Hinterberg up to the bustling Sennäbeizli of Alp Kohlschlag and on the way back the Chapfensee ...

A wonderful tour leads over the lonely, protected moors at Lake Chapfen.
