    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 ... ..

    Beautiful lake under the Rubihorngipfel. The meadows around invite you to sunbathe. Camping and fire stations is not allowed (nature reserve). Both as a break in the climb and as a refreshment on the descent a great stop.
