You can walk around the lake of Riebenersee. The terrain is mixed with some scattered trees, open grassland and wet meadows. Good birding and a chance to see birds like White-tailed Eagle, Common Crane, Great Grey Shrike and Common Kingfisher. The hide on the lake of Riebenersee itself is particularly nice as the approach is completely covered. This allows you to get really close to all sorts of waterfowl and reed dwellers.
Best to get to Rieben by car and from there walk around the lake. The trail around the lake is about 5 km.
