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.
