A beautiful place in black forest region. A nice lake, one can go around it and experience the beauty of nature. One can also go hiking. On my recent visit, I also experienced snow. It has some restaurants and shops at the entrance. overall a very beautiful place.

We stopped off here for Black Forest gateau and coffee .. Took a walk round the lake and had some chill time whilst touring by motorcycle.. Very pretty area and an easy walk round .. Reasonably priced food .. Very busy and a popular stop off whilst riding the B500

Yes it is very touristy, but if you have just ridden up the B500 then have a rest and some black forest gateaux in a nice setting overlooking the lake
