About Walchensee

Walchensee is an immaculate alpine lake hidden deep within the Bavarian Alps of Germany south of the city of Munich, officially encompassed by the Kochel District and bordered by Jachenau. Walchensee is recognised as one of the most expansive and deepest lakes in the country measuring 192.3 metres from bottom to surface and renowned for the characteristic sapphire blue hue of its waters.

This Bavarian gem offers the unmatched scenery of untouched surrounding woodlands and looming distant mountains. Windsurfing, sailing, biking, hiking and swimming are popular activities around Walchensee, but surprisingly the area is rarely overcrowded. The small village called Luftkurort exists on the western banks of the lake, adding a unique cultural element to the natural rustic setting.

Public transportation to Walchensee via 1 hour-long train ride is possible on routes between the Munich and Kochel stations. A bus from the station transports passengers directly to the lake. Freeway A95 provides motorway access to Walchensee as well, but there are no allocated parking areas.

The depth of Walchensee is attributed to historic tectonic activity within the valley on which it resides. The waters of the lake serve as an important power source initiated by the construction of the Lake Walchen Power Plant and six funnelling water pipes.
