Loved this lake with its townside beach - perfect for a refreshing swim after walking around the lake (approx 2 hours). Very relaxing lying on one of the beaches or grass (or sitting in the cafe/restaurant) and feasting your eyes on the deep blue green...More

Really beautiful lake with clear water. It was very hot July day when we visited, so we could not resist to take a bath. Water was pleasantly cool, but still warm enough for swimming. Be careful, if you are not a good swimmer, it becomes...More

Tourists do make a beeline for the castles. If you have time, walk towards the water where the Neuchwanstein shuttle bus drops you off. If you appreciate nature you won't be sorry.
