    The Alatsee is one of the most beautiful lakes in Ostallgäu, idyllically situated and easy to get around.

    A very beautiful lake, wonderful for walking, biking, eating at the lake, swimming, jumping into the water, walking on foot, etc. ...Diving is strictly prohibited, because of a layer of bacteria in the depth, could be fatal.The story of the lake is much more interesting, but maybe not suitable to type here.
    Alatsee in the 3 Reich, who wants it Google.

    Alatsee highlight for the seventh. Even if it is a really beautiful bathing lake: so many highlights in Komoot for a lake is not very helpful!

    Beautifully situated mountain lake, it goes up quite steeply from Weissensee, but can be done with an e-bike.

    The Alatsee located above also hides its secrets. A layer of red algae at a depth of 15 to 18 meters is a real peculiarity: Under it it is pitch dark and the water is almost oxygen-free, according to divers. For safety reasons, you may only go underwater here with a special permit and for research purposes. In very rare cases the algae are washed upwards and can be seen from the bank as a reddish shimmer in the water.
    Before the Alatsee passed into the possession of the monastery, it is said to have belonged to the widow of a knight. "She is said to have temporarily made the lake available to the abbey for fishing," says Peresson. When the monastery later no longer released the water, she cursed it, according to an old legend. In revenge, the son is said to have thrown tree stakes into the Alatsee to make it unusable for fishing with nets.
    The tree stakes can no longer be found, of course. In the past few decades, divers have discovered interesting objects in the 32-meter-deep water: "In addition to ammunition and weapons from the Second World War, there is still a linkage in the Alatsee that was used in the Nazi era for aerodynamic tests on aircraft fuselages," says Peresson.
    Contemporary witnesses report that the lake was a strictly guarded restricted area of the National Socialists until the end of the war. As soon as this dark chapter was over, according to Peresson, the American occupiers closed the waters in order to take a closer look at it. What exactly they hoped to find there is still unclear. Another secret that the Faulenbacher Tal will probably no longer be finally revealed ...
