    The Obere Murgsee is the largest of the three lakes and is located at the end of the Murg Valley. The water, located at 1,816 meters, invites you to swim on hot days. The quaint Murgseehütte, a privately run guest house, is located directly on the shore, where you can also stay overnight. You can also fish in the lake from May to September. The required patent can be obtained from the Murgseehütte.
