Lake Urdensee is situated on 2'249 m asl in a side valley of the middle Schanfigg between the municipalities of Arosa and Vaz/Obervaz, as well as the alp region Urder Augstberg. It is surrounded by the mountains Plattenhorn, Hörnli, Hörnligrat, Tschirpen, Parpaner Weisshorn and Parpaner Schwarzhorn.


The Lake on 2'249 m asl lays in a side valley of the middle Schanfigg. The lake is surrounded by alp meadows, so no uliginous vegetation could build up. The clear and cold water glimmers turquoise on the schistose rocks and black-green serpentine below. The lake came about by a stowage of a lateral moraine. There is a shallow of unknown size in the western part and the lake is icecovered during upt to eight months per year.
