Beautiful lakes around the Allgau region
Lake Forggensee is located in one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in Bavaria.
In and around Fussen, you will find wonderful countryside dotted with deep blue lakes. Holidaymakers are always close to one of the seven larger and four smaller lakes. Enjoy the view from a canoe, try standing up on a surf board or take a sailing trip. You can do all of this around the Allgau region.
Lake Forggensee is Bavaria’s fifth largest lake. It catches the overflow from the Lech River and acts as a reservoir for the hydroelectric power stations in the lower regions. It is also essential for regulating floods during the snow melt. The boat ride around Lake Forggensee provides you with a great view of the Neuschwanstein Castle, making it a memorable experience for grownups and children alike.
The lake is around 12km long and up to 3km broad, making it one of the largest reservoirs in Bavaria. Leaving the dock at regular intervals, the Lake Forggensee boat ride will take you around the entire lake. Besides being able to see the Neuschwanstein Castle, you will also have an incredible view of the surrounding mountain ranges.
