  • Beautiful mountain lake. It is not accessible by car, do not like us... we must park in the village and take the bus that will take you there in 15 minutes. Bus any time in half to take to the station or on the main car park (€ 5.5 per person)

  • The small lake on the route from Mittenwald in the Elmau is situated below the steep Ferch sea walls. Mirroring the coniferous forest-covered mountain slopes, he is usually somewhat gloomy. The popular retreat of same name can be found at one end, the other is used by many for bathing in warm weather. A not-too-strenuous approach goes over the Summit of the high Kranzberg, may be for car owners on the way back up Lake to a round trip.

  • This Lake is not quite as close to Mittenwald as the loud sea and thus a little bit quiet. Beautifully situated. As the hike as well as mountain bike a very worthwhile tour. You can swim in the Lake. The snack is located in the restaurant overlooking the madness and lakeside fun!
