Say hello to Hintersee, a peaceful little German lake that I can’t waiiiiit to visit again ASAP. Have you ever heard of it? Save this spot, put it on your fridge, and tattoo it on your thigh because it’s a magical must-see, not just for Kodak moments like this, but aaaalso because.....
1️⃣ To access Hintersee on foot from the nearest village, you literally cross through a place called the “Magic Forest”, AKA Zauberwald in German. Are there gnomes and glitter fairies? Idk, I drove 🤷🏻♀️
2️⃣ Hintersee was once home to a colony of artists who all flocked here because of how pretty it was. Think of it as like an OG Insta-famous spot except people had to paint their pics before sharing them
3️⃣ Today, around the lake, you can hike a “Painters’ Circular Trail”, which is scattered with over two dozen famous paintings of the area perched on easels, displayed against the backdrops that inspired them 🎨 Although if you ask me, seeing moments like this = wayyyy better than any painting anyway!
I’ll definitely be doing more hikes in the coming months to prep for climbing Germany’s highest peak, Zugspitze at the end of May (lol yes apparently that’s a thing I’m doing). Who wants to see more naturey pics?! #Hintersee #Berchtesgaden
