  • Lake Maschsee is mostly very boring the booths that are arranged at the Maschsee only at one point missing just around the Lake already what is going on, however, it is always the same for me a little boring for others maybe not all in all a rather boring Lake to which he is also no Lake but a Lake to the trappings hike or jog for athletes may Eldorado but for lovers of water boring which can you additionally agree not say. I give you 3 points due to the monotony.
