  • It is absolutely necessary to take the boat ride. No problem of seasickness and walking with electric boats

  • The ice age invaded, the original land, and then the construction of the Fort Of The Bavalary Luther ii on the awe-of-the-a-clear lake of the Alps, and to the monte, the mountains of a like a king, a queen, the middle mountain is the prince princess, there is a lie on the lake and the lake, the lake is like a wonder but winter doesn't open.

  • Wonderful nature around the lake. A boat trip to St. Bartholomä is worthwhile. Impressive the steep rocks on the right side of the lake with the echo.

  • Must visit and best lake in Bavaria. Should go on boat. Wonderful natural feels here
  • Worth to visit this cleanest lake of Europe. It is near Austrian boarder but in Bavaria Germany 265 Kilometers from Munich. It is amazing.
  • incredibly beautiful place! Would love to visit again for the upper lake!! p.s. remember to try the drinking water there :)
  • The sightseeing is no doubt spectacular. Super clean and nice lake. Although horrible waiting queue for the boat, worth waiting.
  • Stunning.The boats are all electrically driven,so no pollution to the lake.Just take in the scenery.
