Samarangersee

The privately owned Samarangersee is the little brother of the Fernsteinsee and is considered one of the most beautiful freshwater lakes in Europe. The lake, which lies at an altitude of around 1000 m, shows a landscape of sunken trees, which form a fairytale underwater world through their growth.

Comparatively few perch and char, but are easily made up for by other life: slime algae and freshwater sponges create a great atmosphere!
