Hopfensee is a lake in Swabia, Bavaria, Germany. At an elevation of 783.8 m, its surface area is 194 ha.Plan my trip to Fussen with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
The maximum length of the lake is 2.1 km, and its circumference is 6.8 km. It lies north of Füssen in Ostallgäu. Its maximum depth is 10 m. It was formed by the Lechtal glacier and is one of the remains of a larger Fuessener See. The Hopfensee-Ach flows out of the lake and into the Forggensee.
On the northeast shore is the resort Hopfen am See. There is a campground on the east shore. Besides swimming, which is possible as early as the end of May, boating, sailing, and wind surfing are common activities.
The north shore has extensive views of the Allgäu Alps.

A gorgeous lake nestled beautifully beautiful snow capped mountains. You can take a walk around the lake or bike around it. During the summer this place is great for having a nice picnic by the water. The place is surrounded by cafes and restaurants though right now due to lockdown everything is majorly closed or only doing take away. I highly recommend this place. I will definitely be back in the summers. This area is in the Fussen area so if you are here please don’t miss the lake
One of many lakes around Füssen, quite small but very pretty. Perfect for a days walk, if you pick up the pace it takes less than two hours to go around it. Plenty of benches, ducks, swans, wooden sculptures along the way, with fantastic view on the mountains. And without Corona, plenty of restaurants and cafes.
