  • Walking or running along Machsee is really relaxing. During summer it is always crowded. Best time is late spring and early autumn.

  • A calm place to rest and get sun in summer and for exercising, walking or meeting friends. I always love to spend an evening once a week.
  • It is very large lake and very exciting place. So many peoples and festivals etc. Wonderful castle which reflected in the lake.
  • Beautiful, relatively small area filled up with pleasant atmosphere, stunning architecture, small lake plus it's cute habitats, and huge old trees. Nice place to take time and relax while exploring the city.
  • Very nice place to relax and walk around. Quite calm and many benches are there to sit around the lake. There is also an adjoining park to have picnics or just hangout.
  • very beautiful place. where you can go with family, friends and also alone. very relaxing, ducks around, some ice. very nice. the pictures is from the view from Rathaus Turm, it is 4,00€ to go there.
