Today Forggensee is considered as one of the most beautiful areas for watersport and leisure time activities in the bavarian alpine foothills. Water-rats can try out a different bay every day. Surfers, yachtsmen, fishermen and boatsmen will also find perfect conditions. A very special experience is a canoe-sunset-tour. Hikers and cyclists will like the 32 kilometre circular route around the lake.

What you don‘t see when the largest lake of the Allgäu region is at its full water level, is that it is an artificial lake that was created after the war. In spring 1954 the lake „Lech“ with its length of 12 kilometres and its width of 3 kilometres was dammed up for the first time. The alternate damming in spring and water release in autumn decreases the danger of flooding after the melting of the snow and regulates the water flow at the hydroelectric power stations along the river Lech.

Allow yourself a special „see-trip“: the further the ship leaves the southern lakeshore the more magnificent is the panoramic view of the imposing mountains of the Ammergau, Lechtal and Tannheim alps, the kings castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau and the silhouette of the town of Füssen.
