Places in Austrian Alps for hiking, flower cover meadows, and glacial lakes

Last year we went to Wengen Switzerland and this year Sils Maria south of St. Moritz. Loved both, but Sils was even more beautiful. Smaller, much less crowded, with a lake surrounded by mountains and meadows covered with wildflowers. Located at about 3000 ft. We love to find a similar situation in the Tirol.

I like the southern side of the Grossglockner High Alpine Highway (going south of Zell-am-see). The area north of Lienz, Austria is where I'm talking aobut.

As far as lakes go, the Achensee area in Tyrol is a very beautiful and popular choice but I think it tends to get crowded at times. (https://www.achensee.com/). There's a lot of artificial lakes in Tyrol, tucked away in the valleys.
Both of these are accessible from Mayrhofen in the Zillertal valley.
