    One of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Bavaria that I have been able to explore on my tours so far 💙 Is rarely idyllic in the middle of a high Felsmassov with several surrounding peaks including the Rubihorn! Definitely take a short break, enjoy the view and only then continue hiking😊🏞

    Best place around Oberstdorf. It takes time to climb, but you get so much rewarded at the top.

    very nice tour,
    I particularly like the tour because there is something of everything.
    Very nice paths, great stop in the Gaisalpe and the icing on the cake, the beautiful mountain lake.

    My start begins on the parking lot in Reichenbach (signposted). On the road that leads to the Gaisalpe, you should turn left after a good 200 meters onto the Gaisalptobelweg, it's just more interesting for children, not suitable for prams. You lose a few beads of sweat up to the Unterer Gaisalpsee, but you can relax at the lake again. The further way to the Rubihorn requires dizziness and sure-footedness. On the Rubihorn 1952 m high, a very nice view of Oberstdorf and the Allgäu mountains, if you want to pursue your alpine passion further, you can go over the Gaisalphorn to the Geißfuss and over the Oberer Gaisalpsee back to the Gaisalpe and back to the parking lot. Walking time a good 8 hours. The most common way back leads to the Seealpe mountain station, where you can decide to take the cable car or continue on foot to Oberstdorf. It is again recommended to walk the Faltbachtobel. Arriving in Oberstdorf, you take the bus back to Reichenbach.

    This lake is always worth a rest! Beautifully situated. Alpacas have also been here and could be admired.
