    The absolutely most beautiful and quietest part is the traffic-free east bank between Urfeld and Niedernach, on the other sides there is unfortunately moderate to heavy traffic.

    Very nice routes along the Walchensee. At the beginning and end of a kiosk and a bending garden and always beautiful view of the lake, as well as plenty of swimming.

    Easy parking in the centre of Jachenau near the church. Relatively flat walk with great views of the surrounding mountains. Long stretch of the walk is along the lakeside, which is beautiful. Water is very cold if you decide you need to swim!

    Here you can cool off again after the descent and enjoy the turquoise blue water. Don't forget your swimming trunks!

    The Walchensee with its emerald-green, ice-cold water lies in a beautiful landscape. It is a MUST to put your feet in the water after the hike.

    The water of the Walchensee is always very cold, but after a hike it is a must to buy barefoot through the water.

    This lake is ideal to hike around it. Beautiful turquoise water and this unique mountain panorama is just gorgeous.

    This turquoise lake has something of the Caribbean. The mountain panorama is also beautiful.

    Crystal clear water, reminiscent of a Norwegian fjord. The Walchensee is a jewel in both summer and winter. A circumnavigation is possible. The street on the east bank is only for residents, which allows a quiet stroll for families with strollers or the elderly. In the summer months, the Walchensee unfortunately shines through human and traffic overcrowding. In December 2021, the daily parking fee was € 6 plus € 2 visitor's tax to the public 🅿️ in Urfeld.

    When the hiking trail crosses onto the quayside there is a nice stone beach directly opposite. Here you can enjoy the turquoise blue water again and treat yourself to a cool down. Occasionally you can also see windsurfers.Don't forget your swimming trunks. ;)
