  • Large clear lake with lots of facilities around it. We stayed in Fussen & could acces the lake from the shore near our hotel. There are bathing areas & boating areas & walks around the lake.

  • Excellent to walk or just hike on the path around the lake, or jump on/off the small ferry boat that travels around the lake. Can buy beer/wine on the boat.
