It’s a quite picturesque lake taken into account it’s proximity to famous castle. There are a lot of walking and cycle path around it. Not sure if other activities are available like kayaking etc.

Visited here in the afternoon. There's lots of wildlife and some more spectacular views on offer. There are some good walking trails that are quite flat.

Gorgeous views of snow capped mountains across lake. Wonderful for a walk on lakeside. Neuschwanstein, in view on the far side

The little lake was the perfect place to have a break (during a road trip) and offers not only a charming face but a boat trip as well.

There is a lovely 2-hour ferry ride round the lake stopping at various points. The boat is very comfortable, spotless, and has a great little cafe on the lower deck. No bad place to sit, and there's also outside seating.
