    Start as early as possible, then you can watch marmots!

    Absolutely foolish sight, the effort is worthwhile in any case!

    The only mountain lake in the Allgäu high Alps with an island!

    Beautiful tour. Quiet and untouched. There is always a lot to discover, and the Schrecksee is the perfect place to cool off after the ascent.

    Once around the Schrecksee to see the whole area. Almost everyone stays with the island at the beginning and does not see the rest

    Very beautiful mountain lake with a great mountain panorama - ideally hike during the week outside of the holiday season, as the Schrecksee is otherwise unfortunately very crowded.

    A fabulous place. I can't describe exactly what fascinates me so much, whether the location, the color, the shape or the island? I can't tell 🤔

    Well, a lot of people and corresponding hype. But still nice. Unfortunately an Instagram Hotspot.

    Very beautiful embedded lake - with an impressive backdrop around it. With a view from the Lahnertscharte, the lake looks like a big eye. For me one of the most beautiful mountain lakes. Recommendable.

    it is essential to use good hiking shoes as the ascent and descent is very alpine

    A beautiful mountain lake embedded by the Knappenkopf, Kirchendach, Kastenkopf and Lahnerkopf ... all of them over 2000m high. Fantastic atmosphere at the lake with its island.

    Beautiful view! You absolutely have to walk around the lake once. So you get a perfect panorama from every angle.

    A real postcard motif. Since the expansion of the way almost 10 years ago, the ascent is no longer particularly dangerous, even if it is still steep and partly scree.

    The lake is beautifully situated and framed by some 2000s. Simply pretty there

    Actually, you should only look at the Schrecksee from above. He deserves the respect of his admirers.

    In real much nicer. Impressive backdrop that is better captured with your own eyes than with the camera.
