  • Ferch Lake is idyllically situated, accessible from 2 sides. Once you can hike from Mittenwald via Lake up there or cycle or go by bus and on the other hand you can hike or cycle by KLAIS with Elmau out. The Lake is pretty even in the summer months it is not too cold was, and in the winter, the Sun is only very rarely there to meet. In the middle of the summer, he and a true refreshment has so the 20 degree is maximum but wonderfully clear and clean. In the Gasthof Ferch Lake, you can enjoy and watch the fish. Also a small kiosk is on the lawn.

  • Also in January, the Ferch Lake is a winter dream! The location is unique, frozen and Schneebedekten mountains and forests! A must is a horse-drawn carriage ride with a sleigh through the magnificent scenery.

  • Ferch Lake is situated directly at the foot of the Wetterstein mountains in a very beautiful landscape. To reach the Ferch Lake by bus from Mittenwald or via a footpath from Mittenwald is out or you can ride from Mittenwald with the chair lift on the Kranzberg and Lake Ferch go downhill from there on foot. From Lake Ferch, you can hike with Elmau and through the Gorge to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
