    The Weißensee is a 2.3 km long lake with a circumference of 6.1 km in the district Ostallgäu in Bavaria west of Füssen on the northern edge of the Alps. Only 500 meters further south is the higher Alatsee. The name Weißensee either derives from its white-shimmering appearance due to deposited lime or is explained by the fact that around 600 AD an Alemane named Wizo settled down here.

    With a length of 2.2 kilometers from east to west, a mean width of almost 600 meters and a depth of up to 25 meters, it covers an area of 1.35 square kilometers and has a catchment area of almost 15 square kilometers.

    The landscape protection area between Lech and Alatsee consists 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 make a unique
    Nature. Passing by Kneipp baths, natural lake swimming pools and the miniature golf course, the hike takes you to the legendary Alta Lake and alpine playground in the Allgäu Alps: many myths and legends surround the Alatsee. From here, the 40-minute ascent to the Salober Alm starts. In addition to a nice restaurant in the mountain pasture, hikers can enjoy a 30-minute circular walk with its four-lake view!
