    The Schwansee is small but nice and offers a beautiful view of the castles.

    From the south-west bank of the lake you have a great view of the royal castles.
    Dog owners should know that they will have to walk over some grating when circumnavigating the lake with their dog.

    The Schwansee and its mountain panorama with the castle is unique, but the lake also has its charms when going around it.

    The view at dusk over the Schwansee to Neuschwanstein is great.

    Neuschwanstein Castle, with its history, is actually a "must" for everyone who is here.

    If a concert is in the castles and the wind is cheap, you can listen to the sounds of the lake ... fantastically beautiful!

    Wonderful lake for swimming, relaxing, ... with a circular path. We also recommend the homemade cake in the Franz Wölfle Hut sehr
