    Many regional myths and legends surround the Alatsee. Mythical creatures should live there and avoid ghosts. Careless hikers would be dragged into the lake and lured into crevices.

    As repeated large quantities of fish died and people disappeared again and again, the lake is still considered by the local population as a disreputable place. However, these deaths are most likely due to released hydrogen sulfide. [2]

    The indigenous population indicates that it is possible to get through earth columns in the area of ​​the lake to Austria.

    Due to the location of the lake in a narrow ravine, there are often strong wind currents that lead to adhesions and cripples on trees. This is interpreted by esoterists as signs of existing lines of force and fields. (Wikipedia)

    Beautifully situated lake; perfect for swimming
    The way up from Füssen should take the Fahrstr. be taken, unless you want to have a forest road with uphill-downhill gradients in the 18% range to retract

    The landscape protection area between Lech and Alatsee is composed of gentle nature enjoyment, recreation and regeneration! The idyllic little lakes lined up like a string of pearls, species-rich flower meadows, impressive hillside forests and fascinating rock formations form a unique
    Nature. Passing by Kneipp baths, natural lake swimming pools and the miniature golf course, the hike to the legendary Alta Lake and alpine playground in the Allgäu Alps begins: many myths and legends surround the Alatsee. From here, the 40-minute ascent to the Salober Alm begins. In addition to a beautiful restaurant in the Alm, hikers can enjoy a 30-minute circular walk with its four-lake view!

    At a depth of 15 to 18 meters, the Alatsee has a bright red layer of purple sulfur bacteria. Above the lake is oxygen-rich, including almost oxygen-free. (Wikipedia)

    Just the color of the water is worth a visit and the sweaty journey.

    From there on the Maximilliansweg up to the hut. Exhausting, but worth it
