The Alpsee lake at the gates of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau lies in the midst of a dreamlike setting with impressive architectural monuments.
Distance 6.2 km
From the car park, follow the signs for "Alpsee" and walk along the wide, asphalted access road past numerous restaurants and hotels to the Alpsee. At the lakeshore (1), walk to the left, follow the signs for "Badeanstalt"/ "Marienmonument" and stay on the footpath directly on the lakeshore. Looking back, you can see the Alpsee against the backdrop of the castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein. After the bathing establishment (2), a narrow path winds along the stony and rocky western shore - with fantastic views again and again (3). You pass a Marian monument (4) until you reach the north shore (5). Here it becomes a little more strenuous, as the path climbs slightly and then drops again soon afterwards. The tour ends with a visit to Hohenschwangau Castle or the impressive Neuschwanstein Castle.
