The Forggen Lake
Even though Forggen Lake, as it is today, is not a natural lake, it lies in a basin that was filled by a much larger lake after the last ice age. With an area of 15.2 square kilometres, the lake is the fifth largest lake in Bavaria.
Maximum depth: 34.8 metres
Width: 2.8 kilometres
Length: 8.7 kilometers
Lake Rotensee impresses with its picturesque location surrounded by forests and meadows. The small moor lake above Rieden is a popular nature experience, which is also a wonderful excursion destination outside the bathing season.
Breite: 800 Meter
Länge: 1,9 Kilometer
The Vils river rises from it and an easy hiking trail leads around the lake, over which one reaches the Bergaicht-Wasserfall at the end of the valley. Since 1957 it has been surrounded by the Vilsalpsee nature reserve, which is home to many species, including rare orchids.
The Vilsalpsee is a 1,165 m high lake in the Tannheimer Tal.
The Frauensee lies somewhat hidden in the municipal area of Lechaschau in the district of Reutte, at the foot of the Gehrenspitze in the Tannheimer mountains.
The Frauensee is small, but 40 meters deep, and a bathing lake not only for women, but for the whole family.
The Swan Lake
Since 1956, Schwansee has been part of the “Alpsee, Schwansee and Faulenbacher Tal” landscape conservation area.
Depth: 7 meters
Length: 0.65 kilometres

Lake Weißensee has an area of 134 hectares, is 2.5 kilometers long, about 900 meters wide and 25 meters deep.
The Alpsee lies in the immediate vicinity of the royal castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein directly at the foot of Mount Säuling.
Width: 800 meters
Length: 1.9 kilometres
Maximum depth: 62 m
Average depth: 27.85 m
Ecologically valuable silting up areas with reed belts and marsh meadows line large parts of the shore, while at the south-eastern beach camping and bathing areas characterize the picture.
Depth: 12 meters
Length: 2.40 kilometres
Range: 6.79 kilometres
The Illasberg Lake
Lake Illasberg is a real paradise for bathers and anglers. It is a foothill of Lake Forggen.
It is about 50 hectares in size and motorboat driving is prohibited here.
The Upper Lake
The Obersee lies in the Faulenbach valley. Come to rest in the Valley of the Senses and swim in the wonderful nature in the natural baths.
It is about twice the size of Lake Mittersee.
The Mittersee lies directly in the Faulenbach valley, west of Bad Faulenbach on Alatseestraße.
It is about 400 meters long and 100 meters wide. The outdoor pool offers swimming fun for young and old.
Lake Alatsee is a meromictic lake. It is fed by groundwater that flows eastwards via Faulenbach through Obersee and Mittersee into the Lech.
At a depth of 15 to 18 metres, Lake Alatsee has a bright red layer of purple sulphur bacteria.
Above the lake is rich in oxygen, below it almost without oxygen.
Despite the lack of oxygen and the toxic metabolic products of the purple-sulfur bacteria, it was repeatedly observed that fish went directly into the layer or apparently came out of it intact.
Length: 490 meters
Depth: 32.1 metres
The lake was formed by the Lechtal glacier during the Würme ice age. It is one of the warmest bathing lakes in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps!
The Hopfensee is about 2.5 kilometers long and has a circumference of 6.8 kilometers.
