The trail around the lake is relatively level and accessible for most people. A bit cold for swimming, but the water does soothe the muscles. It is peaceful and natural beauty at its best. There are plenty of benches strategically placed around the lake such...More

In mid-April, there was hardly anyone near the lake even on a weekend. It is well worth the extra 30-minute walk past the much more crowded Lautersee.

This is undoubtedly the #1 thing to do in Mittenwald. The place is so serene and calm, you can almost forget everything when here. This is a beautiful lake no doubt, but I think it is also important to note the time of year and...More

The setting is spectacular, the food delicious and the staff warm and welcoming. It is well worth walking on a little further to the Ferchensee gasthaus and well-worth the wait at busy times as everything is homemade and freshly prepared. Having enjoyed various mains and...More

This serene lake has a lovely patio setting where we had our lunch. The fish are right from the lake and delicious, served with buttered potatoes, and of course we had our beers!! Awesome scenery along the way. Even a little chapel in the meadow....More

Chilly and frosty New Years Day hike that was a blast. Our 9-year old daughter easily did it, without slipping on any of the ice, so can be done by most anyone. Of course the restaurant was closed for the season, but the hiking trails...More

We took the Kranzberg Ski Lift to the top and hiked the path first to Lautersee Lake and then another 25 minutes to Ferchensee Lake. A small restaurant is the only building on the lake. Stop for a beer or lunch outside on the patio/deck....More

Lovely lake to walk to and around. There is a pleasant hotel which provides refreshments and facilities. It is possible to walk on to other attractions if you have the stamina. All routes are well marked, including with estimated times to complete.

Walked and bussed (free bus on Karwendel pass) on a couple of occasions. The view is fantastic, but we preferred the smaller lake Lautersee. Good location for walking to and from and the restaurant on the lake was okay
