This gorgeous alpine lake, surrounded by forests and mountains, is wonderful for a short walk or a longer stay. We stopped at one of the roadside parking lots and enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the lake.

This is a stunning part of the world, the lake is clear blue and on a sunny day with the surrounding mountains, makes for wonderful panoramic views. If you're of good fitness then hiking the Herzogstand mountain is a must, it's strenuous and tiring but...More

A beautiful lake surrounded by hills, there are plenty of opportunities to participate in water sports. The colour of the lake was a magical aqua green and the water was enticing. Cyclists seem to like this location and I think you can cycle all around...More

Walchensee is not far away from Garmish. I used a car. But you can check buses availability locally or through internet. Bus network is good in Germany.
