Located about 10km east of Lake Tegernsee , Lake Schliersee is smaller, more romantic and just as popular with day-trippers. In the summer, tourists flock to the villages dotted around the lake for swimming, walking, cycling, boat-trips and health spas, as well as for skiing in the winter. Despite all that, the lake has remained relaxed, because of heavy restrictions on construction at the water's edge, so that the walk around the lake is still relatively unspoilt. The lake is surrounded by high, forested mountains, which are perfect for hiking. At the end of an energetic day, several restaurants and pubs tempt visitors in to sample their delicious (fish) suppers. The easiest way of reaching Lake Schliersee is by train and information is available at the main railway station.
