Boat trips on

Lake Forggensee

The romantic soul of Bavaria

1 st June until

15 th October

2012

www.fuessen.de


The two boats of the Forggensee shipping

company of Füssen sail a regular service

with round trips of two different lengths

from 1 st june until 15 th october.

Lake Forggensee

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.

The small round trip in the southern part

of the lake takes about 55 minutes. The

large round trip takes two hours and takes

its passengers to the dam which is located

on the northern shore.

It is possible to interrupt the journey

at any stop for a lunch or coffee break.

Walks, hikes and cycle-tours around Lake

Forggensee can also be combined with part

of the journey on board – bicycles can be

carried on board in limited numbers with a

small additional charge. Our insider tip for

photos of castle Neuschwanstein.
