  • The Lake is beautiful. In the summer you can swim, and the water is crystal clear. But get ready because the water is freezing! Around 18-20 c at the height of summer. In winter it can completely freeze and you can skate or walk on the Lake. A chance to happen is if it's a winter with freezing temperatures for a long time. It's not every year that freezes because it is too large.
