Read loads of comment saying that was a great lake with breathtaking view. It wasn’t what I expected, just a normal lake. It might be better in summer time. more »
Must visit and best lake in Bavaria. Should go on boat. Wonderful natural feels here
Worth to visit this cleanest lake of Europe. It is near Austrian boarder but in Bavaria Germany 265 Kilometers from Munich. It is amazing.
