Alpsee, Bavaria

4.7
#17 of 96 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.

  • Are passed back from Hohenschwangau during one of my trips to Bavaria and stopped for a quick stop near the castles. It was a weekday early autumn and there was the usual crowding whereby a walk on the banks of the Alpsee was really nice,

  • Stunning place. Recommended to view the weather forecast in advance to enjoy the fullest and take the best pictures of this lake. The lake is easy accessible by public transport or by your own transport vehicle.
  • Beautiful scenery. You can walk around the lake, and even swim there in summer. Although snow was down to the water's edge, the lake wasn't frozen and ducks were swimming.
  • It's really beautiful lake
  • Very very beautiful place..
  • Prettiest place I have been
