The Plansee is located in the district of Reutte in Tyrol, in the middle of the Ammergauer Alps, very close to the two municipalities of Breitenwang and Heiterwang.
The Plansee has an area of 2.87 square kilometers and is 5.7 km long and 1.3 km wide. It is connected to the Heiterwanger See by a canal about 300m long. The water of the Plansee is almost crystal clear due to its low algae content, and you can see far into the water, which has a maximum depth of 78m.
A circular hiking trail invites you to walk around the lake or discover the nearby Stuibenfalls. Or you can take a bike ride to Linderhof Castle from the Plansee. In hot temperatures, you can of course also swim in the lake. Diving is also possible, there is even a dive camp at the lake. Sailing, boating or fishing are also popular activities at the Plansee. From the end of May to autumn, boat tours are also offered on the lake. This is a great opportunity to sit back and relax and let the fantastic landscape have its effect.
The Plansee is always worth a visit, its fantastic location between the mountains and the crystal clear water enchant every visitor.
