The Alpsee is a lake in the Ostallgäu district of Bavaria, Germany, located about 4 kilometres southeast of Füssen. It is close to the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles.Plan your Alpsee visit and explore what else you can see and do in Hohenschwangau using our Hohenschwangau trip planner.
The lake has just under five kilometres of shoreline and a depth of up to 62 metres. It is a popular tourist attraction, given its proximity to the castles and the wild swans that inhabit the lake. Boats are available for rent and there is a wide variety of hiking trails in the vicinity. A circular path leads around the shore, and the "Fürstenstrasse" (Princes' Road) leads from Hohenschwangau over the Schwarzenberg ridge and down to Pinswang in the Lechtal.
A beautiful little jewel hides behind the completely overrun tourist magnets. It is relaxing to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature during a walk around the Alpsee. more »

Wonderful place for boating. There you can see the Neuschwanstein and the Hohenschwanstein.
We walked around the lake yesterday and this has become one of our favourite walks in the world! The scenery was stunning and the path was well maintained and well signposted. It was so peaceful! Cannot recommend this enough!
