You can swim in it even in September

Although a reservoir, it has a character that makes it a worthwhile visit. Lots for walkers, runners, cyclists and fishing too.

What a great way to spend a couple of hours, cruising on this reservoir that looks so natural and is quite a sight to see. The German Alps in the background add immeasurably to the beauty. The ship has good food, a nice bar, lots of desserts and tables galore. Nice staff, very helpful. Beautiful sights, and so peaceful on... More

We biked around the lake and it was really enjoyable. We liked the view of mountains and biking trails are very well defined

The views and silence of the lake were tremendous. The surrounding town is delightful and hearing the children laughing and playing in the lake was heart warming.

A nice way to spend an hour or so is to take a cruise on this lake, and enjoy the mountains, the sights, and the beauty while sipping a bottle of your favorite beverage. Cheap family fun.

It was very relaxing to walk on Forggensee shores. Water was like from Bahamas because of minerals from The Alps. There were few ships flowing on the lake and the scenery was so photographically. You can see the centre of Füssen (surrounding by the Alps) from Forggensee. Waiting for next trip there =)

We walked to the lake from Fussen along the river. The boat trip was very inexpensive and the facilities were really good-toilets and a small bar. It was lovely to sit up top and enjoy a beer. We did the longer trip and opted to stay on board, although you could get off at each stop. As we did it... More

We did the boat trip on the first day of the 2013 season. The weather was lovely and it was a very relaxing trip with the beautiful mountains in the background. We also did some cycling around the lake which was very easy and family friendly.
