  • Ideal for a short break or as a starting point for excursions and walks. Around the Lake you can find cheap accommodations and restaurants.

  • It is a nice lake just at the foothills of the Alps, great colors. The view from the Neuschwanstein castle is breath taking. 
  • Are driven to the forggensee Lake on the recommendation of the rental. Were very impressed about this beautiful location and scenery. Also not run over in October and the weather was good to us. This Lake should definitely visit to a get. We will come back.
