    The Walchensee invites you to go hiking, swimming and cycling. A beautiful lake to relax and unwind. You must have been here once.

    Very beautiful on every side. Well attended in summer.

    The Walchensee is one of the deepest (maximum depth: 190 m) and at the same time with 16.40 km² one of the largest alpine lakes in Germany. The lake is located at 800 m above sea level, 75 km south of Munich in the middle of the Bavarian Prealps. With its entire area, including the island of Sassau, it belongs to the municipality of Kochel am See. In the east and south it borders with its banks on the municipality of Jachenau. The landowners of the lake and island area are the Bavarian State Forests. In contrast to most of the other larger lakes in Bavaria, the lake is not subject to the Bavarian Administration of State Palaces, Gardens and Lakes. Since 1924, the natural lake has served as a reservoir for the Walchensee power plant located 200 m below the Kochelsee.

    The lake should be explored from the other side of the river - there is less traffic as it is a private road. There is also a hiking trail there - without any cars.

    The south side of the Walchensee can only be reached via a private toll road. This can be used free of charge for cyclists; with the car or motorcycle there is a toll fee of € 4.00.

    But it is worthwhile in any case! This side of the Walchsee is so grandiose, the water was turquoise clear like on the Côte d’Azur and along the toll road you will always find a beautiful and lonely place to swim, switch off and just enjoy the landscape!
