    The Fichtelsee is not only nice to look at but offers a refreshing bathing experience in summer.

    Stiller dammed up forest lake with "acidic" fish-free water. Quiet rather not, there are many tourists. Bathing and boat driving.

    At times pretty crowded and thus long waiting times.
    Very nice location right on the Fichtelsee.

    A great place to start your tours. The hotel is right on the lake and you can eat, drink and spend relaxing hours. The best time is during the week

    Even in winter (mid-Feb) a relaxing destination with plenty of peace and nature. One should expect at this time of year with some icy ways (during the day it thaws and night freezes everything violently).

    The Fichtelsee is one of my favorite destinations, especially in the summer, and to stop by, there is a delicious tavern here.

    We started our tour here and let it end here again. Parking next to the hotel, good food and friendly staff. What we wanted to say, we did not go over the water, probably the GPS has misunderstood something!

    A round trip around the Fichtelsee is always worth a few kilometers.
    Then relax a little on the hotel terrace and the day is okay

    Easy to reach by bike, on foot or by baby carriage. From the parking lot Seehaus, or even shorter, directly at the well signposted parking lots possible at any time. Beautiful terrace and good management make the Sunday trip completely successful

    Very nice boardwalk in some places of the Fichtelsee.
    Highly recommended is the path through the moor.

    With the view to the snow mountain comes here again and again Alpenfeeling. Dogs should be prohibited from swimming due to PH value. Think of the health of the four-legged friends. But a day here is balm for the soul. Absolutely experience and enjoy the peace. No matter if spring, summer, autumn or winter
