There is a lovely 2-hour ferry ride round the lake stopping at various points. The boat is very comfortable, spotless, and has a great little cafe on the lower deck. No bad place to sit, and there's also outside seating.

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

A great charming lake, you will certainly enjoy by nice sunny and warm weather. Take the round trip on the boat and have a fine alround view to the hills/mountains and Neuschwanstein Castle. Do not miss this fine excursion. Highly recommended. Like wise you can...More
