It is a nice lake just at the foothills of the Alps, great colors. The view from the Neuschwanstein castle is breath taking.

A good way of seeing the lake and how the Alps merge into the landscape facing north from Fussen. We saw an eagle fly over the castles, which was a thrill. Coffee etc. Is available on the boat.

We rented bikes in Fusspn and set out for a days ride around the lake. The weather was perfect and the ride was lovely. Mostly on paved bike paths but there are a few areas where upon merge with traffic. Many places along the way to pull over and enjoy a picnic, or just appreciate the views. Lots of guesthouse...

Breathtaking colors; the white of the sails and blues water wrapped between green rolling hills and purple blue mountains. Plan for a stop on your way to Cinderella's castle.

A beautiful lake with spectacular views of the mountains. Trails take you around the lake if you like nice walks. Great picture opportunities all around

If you enjoy mountain biking or walking you have got to go this lake. It is so beautiful you can hardly believe your eyes. As well as the incredible reflections of the blue mountains on the lake there are cows with dinging bells and pretty horses and wild deer. It is only 15 minutes walk from Schwangau. We didn't allow... More
