Walchensee, Galerie

Slightly hidden, next to the first roofing of the road south of Urfeld there is a small parking lot. This is the entrance to the Walchensee. On the right, from 5-10 m (depending on the season), a steel strip leads to an old car wreck at ~35 m, on the left it goes directly into a steep face.

The Walchensee is very rich in freshwater fish. On the steep face look for eel rods in the crevices. You will also see zander, trout, perch, burbot, and bream.
