    The Forggensee.
    A pearl in the Allgäu.
    Who camps here, holiday or planning an Alpine crossing, it should not be missed the area with his Renner to drive.
    Numerous swimming spots invite you to cool off.
    Those who follow the Seestraße in Dietringen can make a detour to the shore for swimming or follow the cycle path towards Rieden and make a round.

    The Forggensee, also memory Roßhaupten, is a run by the Lech reservoir near Füssen in Königswinkel in the Bavarian Allgäu. The lake is with 15.2 km ² the fifth largest lake in Bavaria and the largest reservoir in Germany. It is located in the district Ostallgäu, while two-thirds in the municipality of Schwangau. Other neighboring communities are Füssen, Halblech, vineyards on Forggensee and Roßhaupten. The lake got its name from the former, flooded hamlet Forggen. Wikipedia

    Only not in spring when the lake is still empty.

    Whether west or east side, the Forggensee is from height Waltenhofen always worth seeing.
    Only this year (2018) in the southern part the herb will bloom visibly at the lake bottom and the lake loses much of its beauty.
