We spent a whole morning first to the west shore and then the east. It was so so beautiful and relaxing. We are photo lovers and we took so many pictures there. It is good for sports, family with kids, couples, and of course lovers.

Unexpectedly beautiful spot, worthing stopping for more then a few days to really enjoy. Take time to really explore the lake. The cable car to the top of the mountain is a great way to get a great perspective.

We had 3 days excellent cycling in this area. The trip around the lake is awesome - we did it twice, both ways.

I stay at the LandHotel Guglhupf, I found that there is a even a bigger lake right behind the hotel area. It looks nice and quiet. And there are not many people walking around. That's where i could feel peace of mind. Suggest it.

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
