Alpsee, Bavaria

4.7
#17 of 39 in Nature in Bavaria
The Alpsee is a lake in the Ostallgäu district of Bavaria, Germany, located about 4 kilometres southeast of Füssen. It is close to the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles.The lake has just under five kilometres of shoreline and a depth of up to 62 metres. It is a popular tourist attraction, given its proximity to the castles and the wild swans that inhabit the lake. Boats are available for rent and there is a wide variety of hiking trails in the vicinity. A circular path leads around the shore, and the "Fürstenstrasse" (Princes' Road) leads from Hohenschwangau over the Schwarzenberg ridge and down to Pinswang in the Lechtal.

  • Large lake In the summer, will be a place where people come out swimming and sunbathing. Very cool and clear water. Around the Lake is a very shady forest. There is access for Hiking and Bicycle. There are boats for 3-4 persons, there are hotels, restaurants and Duty Free, because the adjacent area attractions, but is just the entrance. When they walk in the Lake District People will start to lessen somewhat quiet, with buses, bus access, not far from the city of Füssen.
