We walked and relaxed around the lake. Beautiful area for walking and biking. Pretty flat surrounded by mountains.

We somewhat inadvertantly cycled around this whole lake and were so surprised at the varied activities and terrain around this one lake. There is a paved bicycle path for probably 95% of the way (the rest of the time you are on a gravel/dirt path)....More

It is awesome! Great views, magic colour of water, pure nature around... There are also boats available, two castles, a lot of restaurants nearby and gift shops of course. If you are lucky with the weather you will enjoy the time for sure!

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.
