Mountain Biking Highlight
Forggensee, with its length of twelve kilometers and three kilometers width, is the largest lake in the Allgäu and the fifth largest in Bavaria. He is not a natural lake. The Forggensee was first developed as a reservoir in the fifties, serves as a reservoir for the Lech downstream hydroelectric power plants and is important for the flood control of the Lech during snowmelt. The special feature of the Forggensee: It only has the full damming height from June to mid-October. In winter you can see in the empty lake the remains of the Roman military road Via Claudia Augusta, which led through the middle.
