This is in the German Alps, near Lake Constance and all Alpine lakes. Peace, Environmental Culture, Sport, Nature, Beauty all in harmony with us. A delight for adventurous tourists. You can wander around the woods, make ambitious alpine ascents, cross beautiful unspoiled lakes, escape the hustle and bustle of the city and live the purest Alpine environment in a unique setting. An unforgettable journey that will leave its mark on anyone who can get there.
AuBenalster or Alster lake is one of the two large lakes found in the city center of Hamburg. These lakes are artificial and were created from the river Alster. At some hotels, like ours, you are entitled to use the shuttle that goes from one lake to another at no cost. It's worth the walk, and finally, there is nothing like a German beer in any of the bars that surround the lake.
In the village of Hohenschwangau, having previously made a trip to the mountain towns of Seefeld and Mittenwald, Garmisch is reached, at the foot of the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Austria, which overlooks one of the best views of the Alps. From Garmisch, you come to Hohenschwangau, where you will spy the huge and beautiful Lake Alpsee. After a boat ride, you can visit one of the castles of the Mad King, namely Neuschwanstein. This is what Walt Disney based the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris on, and that was nominated as one of the 7 new wonders of the world.
The Chiemsee Lake is the third largest lake in Germany. It overlooks the Alps and is one of the favorite summer destinations for Germans. Its points of interest are the Fraueninsel (Island of Women) and Herreninsel (Isle of Man). The best place, meaning the closest to gain access to the islands is Gstadt.
The trip to the Black Forest is one of the best I've done in Europe. Lake Titisee originates from the glaciers of the Cordillera de Feldberg. Surrounded by dense forests and clear waters, it is a beautifully picturesque scene. We were there during the day and in the early morning before the tourist buses arrived. We rented a motor boat and were enjoying ourselves very much. You can rent these boats at the pier, but I cannot remember how long for - we had been there all morning. Highly recommended.
I recommend going here early in the morning, taking the first boat, in this way you can avoid the crowds of people and you can enjoy this site as it deserves. After the walk to the other side of the lake, I recommend a good beer in the little cabin while admiring the scenery.
This idyllic lake in Berchtesgaden National Park is a favorite for Germans to spend their summer days. Here you can take a tour, on a boat on the lake. One of the most recommended places to visit is the church of San Bartolome, more or less in the middle of the lake.
Undoubtedly, the star of the Berchtesgaden National Park is fascinating Koenigssee, a lake of great beauty and tranquil dark waters that's completely surrounded by imposing mountains almost 3,000 meters tall. There is a whole fleet of electric ferries (they don't pollute or make noise) that circulate across the lake from end to end every 20 minutes. For me, it is an almost mandatory ride, especially if you consider that it is the only way to access the fascinating monastery of St. Bartholomew, a beautiful church with striking red domes, which together with the surrounding mountains, makes for a perfect postcard.
It is also the only way to reach the nearby Lake Obersee and the routes that you can do from there. Boats depart from the Koenigsee ferry terminal. You can buy different tickets at the ticket booth, ranging from single round-trip tickets to tickets combined with the Jennerbahn (Mt. Jenner cable car) for a good price(33€ per person).
A little curiosity: the acoustics of the lake are very unusual, and it's very interesting to ask the captain of the boat to demonstrate the echo in the middle of the lake. If you're lucky enough to find him a good mood, you can even hop on the horn and give it a try (see video). He'll ask for a tip later, of course.
Germans know how to find little havens of peace to cool down in during the warm summer temperatures. A dip in the Auwald-see is a small pleasure, very Germanic, which is never in the travel guides but it's a perfect summer plan to mitigate the heat (when it's hot) and feel like an inhabitant of Lauingen. There is a small bar along the small lake where you can even eat something without pretensions.
Lake Mummelse is a stunning lake located 1,036 meters above sea level. This lake is 20 meters deep at its deepest point, and is a wonderful isolated lake, where there is nothing but a hotel and a souvenir shop in the area.
On vacation in one of the most beautiful areas of Germany - Mecklenburg-West Pomerania - there is an area full of beautiful lakes with a magnificent natural park where I could relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. When on this magnificent trip with my partner I got a photo of the romantic sunset.
August 2011, Norwegian fjords cruise, we stopped in Kiel northern Germany. We made a trip to Malente and before coming to this beautiful city, we were taken to five lakes by boat and each one was well communicated. We were struck by the clear water of the lakes and the tranquility of the environment.
This lodge is reasonably priced and sits alongside a lovely lake and close to the historic village which houses the Franz Marc Museum. When I got there the whole hostel was booked by a school group aged about 7 or 8. The style is rustic and is a family hostel with shared showers which are fairly clean. As the previous night I was sleeping in the open, it was luxury for me. Being objective, I guess the best thing is the amount of green space and peace around and that the lake is within walking distance. The surrounding road has a couple of charming spots to take a rest. If you travel by bike, the area is ideal because it has an amazing network of bike lanes, surprising considering the cold and rainy weather they have. I would definitely recommend the biker routes.
In every season you can do different activities with family or friends for example in this lake surrounded by forests and fed by the river Lech, in winter you can ice skate and in the summer you can go swimming or paddle boat or take a walk.
After taking the S1 line, at Potsdamer Platz, we arrived at beautiful Lake Wannsee. We went there almost by accident, after getting carried away by a banner advertising the places you could get to from the city by public transport. The lake is surrounded by mansions, schools and a port from which ships depart from time to time, doing a tour of the area. It is definitely a little oasis of nature in the vicinity of the city.
