Tips

  • Manfred 🌳

    The Ungeheuersee is a flat bog pond, which is fed by the Krumbach. As part of the only raised bog in this low mountain range, the lake has been protected as a natural monument since the 1930s. The name has nothing to do with monsters, but derives from the words "Unger" for forest pasture and "Heyer" for enclosures. A very idyllic place.

    At dusk in the summer, a bats living there flutter around. :-) Sit still, and enjoy the silence .....

    In spring the lake is full of amphibians. Next door is the Weisenheimer hut which is only open on Sundays.

    There are many opportunities to hike to Monster Lake, most of which are good for children too. My boys had a lot of fun on a tour and want to go back again (see if the monster may be seen in the summer ...)

    On the weekend like something overcrowded!
    In the hut there are very fine little things. In the summer months there are occasional forest worship services.

    Pure nature and still quite busy on weekends, as here some trails intersect.

    The detour here is not worth the wg in the first place, this is not sooooo spectacular, but rather wg the rest area on the lake with a beautiful hut in the middle of a haunted environment .... Wonderful panorama ...
