“Stunning location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Located in the valley between the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, this is an area of stunning natural beauty, tree lined a perfect setting for a picnic or for an envigourating swim. boat trips are available for a cruise around the lake of crystal clear water.

“Bicycle around the Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

We borrowed mountain bikes from our hotel and thoroughly enjoyed riding on paved and gravel paths around the lake. Trail is well marked, 31km in total, and changes elevation several times so you need to be in shape. There are a couple of snack/lunch cabins with outdoor seating right on the trail about halfway around the lake. They serve great brats and, of course, beer. Restrooms available too.

“Beautifull lake, worth a boattrip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2010

Our trip started at Musichall in Füssen, but there are more places to start your trip. At Musichall there are plenty of parkinglots. The Forggensee is midst the mountains, so enjoy all those beautifull panoramas. Musichall at Forggensee was built by Ludwig II, king of Bayern.
