Alpseebad (Lake-swimming -area)is the best place in Hohenschwangau to relax and have fun with swimming in the crystal clear Alplake. You can stay to fill your gap before your castle entrance or stay just the whole day. Open from April every day except rain.

Really beautiful lake with clear water. It was very hot July day when we visited, so we could not resist to take a bath. Water was pleasantly cool, but still warm enough for swimming. Be careful, if you are not a good swimmer, it becomes...More

I did not swim but took the almost two hour walk around the lake. Stunning spot with clean clear water which I expect is very cold but refreshing.

Tourists do make a beeline for the castles. If you have time, walk towards the water where the Neuchwanstein shuttle bus drops you off. If you appreciate nature you won't be sorry.

The scenery is just magnificent. The alps surround this beautiful lake. You need to get at least your feet in the water. Probably just a good idea in the very hot summer.

Visited this area mainly to get the Neuschwanstein Castle - however this lake was a lovely surprise. Crystal clear water, swans, stunning views - an experience that shouldn't be missed if you're going to visit this area.

We stopped here for a small break but found it to be a very beautiful place. Like a hidden treasure we found it and it was well spending a couple of hours here. Totally relaxing and a stressnbuster.

Fantastic lake, clean water and warm in summer. I went a bit off the beaten track, not really using the Alpseebad itself, but going in from the other side of the lake. Whatever you wanna do, it's a good fit if you're coming back down...More
