Visited this lake with the family. We travelled on e-bikes to get there since there are no cars allowed. There is also a bus from Mittenwald that runs every hour. Never seen such a beautiful idyllic place in all my life. Temperature was around 28C...More

Much like Lautersee, Ferchensee is accessible via a diverse system of roads and trails. By foot, it is an approximately 1.5 KM, mostly uphill, walk from Launtersee but well worth the effort. The views that begin to unfold along the trail to Ferchensee are absolutely...More

This serene lake has a lovely patio setting where we had our lunch. The fish are right from the lake and delicious, served with buttered potatoes, and of course we had our beers!! Awesome scenery along the way. Even a little chapel in the meadow....More

Chilly and frosty New Years Day hike that was a blast. Our 9-year old daughter easily did it, without slipping on any of the ice, so can be done by most anyone. Of course the restaurant was closed for the season, but the hiking trails...More

We took the Kranzberg Ski Lift to the top and hiked the path first to Lautersee Lake and then another 25 minutes to Ferchensee Lake. A small restaurant is the only building on the lake. Stop for a beer or lunch outside on the patio/deck....More
