    The Christlessee is located in the southeast of Oberstdorf near the hamlet of Gottenried in the Trettach valley at an altitude of 916 meters. At the bottom of the lake there are some karst springs that ensure that the crystal-clear Christlessee with drinking water quality never freezes over in winter, as this spring water has a temperature of four to six degrees in summer and winter.

    The lake can be reached either via the driveway (only with permission), which leads into the Trettachtal via the Burgstallsteig on Renksteg, or via the sidewalk that branches off at the Mühlenbrücke and leads via pits to Gottenried. Café Christlessee is 100 meters north of the lake and invites you to stop.

    One might think that the tree trunks or the bottom of the lake are above the water, so clear and blue-green is the lake.
    A path leads around the lake.

    Easy hike from Oberstdorf to the beautiful Christlesee.
    In sunshine, the environment is reflected in the lake

    The small hotel on the way invites you to coffee, etc. and the view towards the lake is already nice.

    Fantastically located. Clear green water. Easy to reach from Oberstdorf also for inexperienced and people with less condition. Can be integrated into a circular route over Moorweiher.

    The lake is icy cold and you can only stand it very short. But it is a very good cooling.

    The Christlessee can be reached on a beautiful hike through the Trettach valley. The colors of the water are gorgeous ... turquoise and crystal clear ... you can easily reach Oberstdorf again on a circular hiking trail

    From the terrace beautiful views of the Trettachtal, thanks to the sun even in late autumn still great to sit outside.

    The lake is small, but you are happy about this stopover on a hike. The nearby café or the hotel also give you the opportunity to stop for a short break

    Also a "classic" from Oberstdorf, coveted destination in summer and winter with a cozy stop at the Christlessee Cafe-Restaurant

    Obersdorf has proven to be the absolutely right starting point for many tours in the area.

    A beautiful little lake that is worth a detour on the way from Oberstdorf to Hölltobel. There is a footpath that can be used to go around the lake. Depending on the influence of the light, the color of the Christlessee looks different. Very nice photo opportunities.
