A rather nice walk to do, is alongside the River Lech to Lake Forggensee, a distance of 2km.
The River is a very pretty Blue colour, and was moving pretty fast! A walk gave me the chance to see the Bridge and old House's and buildings from the riverside.
Lake Forgensee is a large lake, about 12km long which was dammed in 1954 to create this lovely Lake. To stop flooding, water release and entry is regulated during the snow melts which is necessary for the Power Plant step downstream.
From the Lakeside, I could see Neuschwanstein Castle in the distance.

I believe the Lake is very popular for water sports in summer, and there are cruise's available.
