  • You can do of course also sailing, pedal boating, boat trips etc... for me it is one of the few lakes where I go swimming but. The water is generally throughout the summer cool - is located on the melt water from the mountains - and quite clean. According to bathing, there are parking lots, kiosks, pedal boat rentals, etc.

  • The beautiful picturesque Lake! Were those edges in the early spring, but even in cooler weather, local scenery fascinate! Wonderful, partly untouched nature. Excellent walking area along the Lake. In the farthest corners of the Lake can be found while walking Fox, deer, beautiful soaring over fields of predators!

  • The Grand Tour is an attraction for locals and tourists alike. There are so many unique perspectives on the Ammergau, Allgäu and Tannheim mountains and because the ship is the best place. This includes a cool wheat beer and a snack, and the day is done.
