We hiked to this marvellous place. The lake water is so fresh chill and stunning that we will indulge in the beauty of the place. There are many ways to reach here but we have chosen to hike. It serves as an oasis to hikers.

We hiked here after a fantastic lunch up at the Berggasthaus Aescher. The hike is gorgeous and in the late spring we got to see all of the beautiful wild flowers!

In September the days are shorter and the temperatures lower (approx 14-18C). Because the sun is lower in the sky and dependent on the time of day you reach Seealpsee you could find the sun shining directly into your camera... More
