What could be nicer on hot days than to refresh yourself in cool lake water – even if it’s only your feet that dangle in the water after a hike!
A special feature of the region are the many mountain lakes, rushing streams, waterfalls and ravines that shape our landscape: welcome “vestiges” of the last ice age. As the glaciers melted, the remaining moraine material formed hollows in the earth’s surface, which then filled with water.
Christlessee, Moorweiher, Freibergsee, Altenbach, Oybach and many more beautiful destinations are within easy hiking distance. Once at such a lake, you will surely want to linger as long as you can.
The turquoise-blue mountain lakes, such as Gaissalpsee, Seealpsee and Guggersee, on the other hand, require a demanding mountain tour, but they never disappoint.
