  • Klöntalersee is a wonderful place for young and old. In the summer you must be there very early if you want to get a good spot. I'm here actually every year once, whether summer or winter doesn't matter. In the winter, the area (almost no tourists) suited to refuel energy and joie de vivre, which comes to just happen quickly lost in this day and age. A special tip: When they come up they go left over the dam, and soon after left straight up to the height of the sponge. The top is a small Alpine allows one a wonderful look at the Klöntalersee. In the summer there are also snacks and drinks. Klöntalersee is a very nice place, but now to well attended for my taste. (Especially in summer)
