  • 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

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

  • 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).

  • Very beautiful forest lake in the middle of the Fichtelgebirge. Great for swimming in summer. The water is a bit colder because the lake is in the forest.

  • Old descriptions of the Fichtelsee tell of a deep mountain lake that hits the Ochsenkopf with its waves. According to current knowledge, there has never been such a lake. Rather, its formation has to do with mining. In 1650 a trench was dug from the high moor to Fichtelberg. In addition to the Fichtelnaab, it was supposed to provide additional water power to drive the hammers. As time went on, however, the moor dried up more and more. Since the water was now scarce, an artificial reservoir was built in 1739: the Fichtelsee. The current size of around 11 hectares was created between 1983 and 1986 and resulted in an increase in size by more than the original water area. Source: fichtelberg.de/freizeit-sport/fichtelsee

  • 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!

  • Those who do not go during peak hours can take a few leisurely laps around the lake. Later more rush when the sun comes out. It's a hotspot

  • 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
