    If you are looking for peace and relaxation, is right on Forstsee - in contrast to the hustle and bustle on Lake Wörthersee here it is almost lonely.

    The parking lot near the lake is chargeable. If you go by bike to the lake, you have to adjust to a steep climb from the Wörthersee.

    The lake lies on a ridge about 1 km north of Lake Wörthersee at 601 m. With a surface of 29 ha it is a small lake. Its maximum depth is 35 m, the average depth 22 m. The lake contains 6.5 million cubic meters of water. The lake is completely natural. He is often used by nudists. There are - with the exception of two toilets - no facilities and the lake can be freely used by anyone for bathing. A hiking trail leads around the lake, on the west bank is a listed piece of an ancient road.

    I recommend to park at Lake Saissersee and from there to Forstsee to hike (about an hour); then circle this around and return to Lake Saissersee. There is also the Seehof Feidig, which is wonderful to spend a night or just to enjoy the excellent food .....

    Ideal to take a break, far away from the hustle and bustle of the Wörthersee. The two signposted trails are with few slopes for each what

    Around the lake there are numerous bathing possibilities, where also many Nacktbader and dogs are to be found. Pack the swimming trunks!

    Idyllic lake, where you can swim well in the summer.

    On a nice day, enjoy the peace in the forest and on the lakes.
    South of the forest lake on the trail directly on the lake, I recommend to stick to the trail markers. Otherwise, you will come across rocky short steep paths.
