    Hard to reach, but not so crowded. Wonderful nature! The lake is naturally cold, but in summer you can already swim.

    The idyllic Gaisalpsee invites you to enjoy the mountain world up here before you start the descent into the valley.

    Great hike: with Nebelhorn lift to Höfatsblick mountain station, then downhill on the 7 above the upper Geissalpsee to lower Geissalpsee. Very nice mountain lake and ideal for a rest. Also suitable for a stop is further down the Geissalpe, but takes a little longer from the lake. Passing Wallrafweg past the ski flying hill, we return to Oberstdorf. Very nice, long tour. Have fun!

    The lower Gaisalpsee is a high mountain lake at 1508 meters altitude in the Allgäu Alps, northeast below the Rubihorns (1957 m). About the Gaisalpbach drains the 3.5-acre lake to Iller.
    The lake is located on the trail from Reichenbach to Nebelhorn on the Gaisalpe, Lower and Upper Gaisalpsee, Gaisfußsattel, Gund and Gmund Edmund Probst House.

    A wonderful place to rest: In the sunshine it is warm, sheltered from the wind, overlooking Gaisalphorn and Rubihorn and on the descent the Alpengasthof Gaisalpe waits with a delicious Kaiserschmarrn ... ..

    From here you can climb up to the Rubihorn, Entschekopf and Nebelhorn. All very nice tours.
