    The Große Arbersee is a relic from the Stone Age. A special feature is the swinging lawn. The swinging lawns, known as floating islands, are mainly found on the western edge of the Arbersee. They cover around two hectares of the water surface and were created in the 19th century when the Arbersee was dammed by more than half a meter for the wood drift. In the process, bog covers detached themselves from the current lake floor and have been floating on the surface of the water ever since.

    At the beginning of the Ice Age was in place of the Great Arbersees the valley of the Seebachs with little inclined slopes. During the last glacial period, frost and glacier movements created the steep sea wall and the basin of the Karsees.

    The imposing Arberseewand with its marsh wells, rock cascades and small waterfalls houses one of the most impressive jungle remains of the Bavarian Forest.

    In the steeply sloping terrain occasionally even snow and ice avalanches go off. Lean tree populations of sable-growing maples and beech trees bear witness to this. On the western edge of the Arbersee, below the sea wall, about 2 ha of water surface are covered with vibrating turf.

    For wheelchair users and strollers the way around the lake is not necessarily suitable because some places are very rooty and uneven.

    My dearest short hike, because the way is super accessible, therefore well suited for beginners.

    Not only in nice weather a highlight. The Waldmurmelbahn is not only interesting for children.

    On the barrier-free path you can go around the lake and then cool your tired feet in the lake.

    Nice circular route around the lake, it is very beautiful there in summer and winter and is definitely worth a visit.
    But be careful, this lake is sometimes very overcrowded and you should be there in good time on arrival to get one of the many paid parking spaces in the high season!
    You can buy refreshments and meals in the local restaurant Arberseehaus.

    If you want to walk around the Arber Lake, you should go early in the morning; because the operation is still limited. The day ticket for parking is also valid at the valley station of the Arber mountain railway.

    Ok, the Great Arbersee is worth a visit, but still touristy. The Kleine Arbersee is more cozy.
