It's a place in Saalfelden that I visit because of the great memories I have of my sons wedding photos being taken here. A nice walk around the lake and good place for a picnic.

A small lake that would not take long to walk around, but you can extend by 6 km with a walk in the woods and villages towards Pfaffing. Very pleasant,
