“well worth the walk up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

From Mittenwald it takes about an hour of up hill walking to reach the lake but it is well worth it. There is a lovely walk around the lake and also a lovely cafe which serves the most delicious goulash!
For those who dont want to walk there is a free bus service which will take you to the lake and back to Mittenwald.

I went for an 18km run up to the lake. In the the summer we love swimming in the lake and have a meal at the restaurant.

“Nice and relaxing lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We visited the Lautersee and Ferchensee lakes, but much preferred Ferchensee as it was more relaxed and less busy. There is a regular bus service from the town to both lakes or you can walk or cycle. There is a lovely restaurant on the lake as well.

“Serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

My wife and I walked out to Ferchensee on a day with clouds and some light showers here and there. Absolutely magnificent. Just pure natural beauty. They have a couple park benches to sit on and I think we took at least a half hour to just sit and enjoy it. We didn't see a single person in that whole time. It is a little bit of a walk from the center of town, but it isn't terribly hard. It would be a great place for a picnic on a nice day.
