Small lake, takes maybe 45 minutes to walk all the way round. Looked clean, many people swimming in it during the summer day. A few small establishments where you can stop for a meal/snack/ice-cream. Plenty of parking all around the lake.

This lake is beautiful, it has breathtaking surroundings and can serve as a lovely walk, or you can also go for a refreshing swim. Its size makes it perfect as it is not too big and not too small - just right for a picnic.
