There is a road leading quite closely to the Brechsee at 1.800m above sea level, coming from Zaunhof in Pitztal (the opposite side of the valley). From the end of the road you will find a very well signposted walking trail through the dense high forest until you reach the lake. It takes approximately 1 hour to reach the lake from the end of the road. The lake, located in the municipal area of St. Leonhard, forms an extension of the little high valley and is surrounded by rough boulders from rockslides and moraines. The idyllic lake is 237m long and 87m wide and an ideal location for a break and a picnic.
