Lake-side walk

Let´s walk around lake Riessersee together and discover all the attractions. We start at the lake house (Dependance).

We follow the lakeside walk to the lakes end. If we decide to go straight ahead we would reach in about 15 minutes the valley stations of the mountain railways to Kreuzeck and Alpspitze. But we stay at the lake and visit the bob sleigh museum from the Olympic games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936. The Historic bob run is still there, just follow the signs to see it in detail. Not to forget the Bob sleigh cottage, which was the workers cottage in the past and is today a popular location for all kind of events. 

Now we have passed most of the attractions and find the lido after a few minutes more on the left side of the lake. The entrance is free for hotel guests, for a small fee even deck chairs and parasols can be hired. And if you don´t want to swim in the lake hire a boat and row over the lake with the fantastic mountain panorama. 

Let´s say we walk in winter then the lido would be closed. But the ice rink is open now and everyone gathers here for ice skating, pond hockey or curling, even by night because there is a floodlight on the lake till 10 pm. Looking for something more romantic? Then pick up some torch lights at the hotels Front Desk and start a night walk around the lake. 

So now we are back at the lake house (Dependance). Here you will find a little playground for the children and - regarding to our motto "Best prospects" a wooden window frame to take a memory selfie with lake and mountains in the background. 

Vacations are necessities not luxuries.

Never forget.
