Vacations in the surroundings
Lake Walchensee & Lake Kochelsee
The lakes Kochelsee and Walchensee are some of the nicest lakes in Bavaria suitable for great sightseeing. The lakes are located in the south of Munich, the Bavarian capital. The lakes developed as a result of the melting of the ice age glaciers.
With the train (stations at Benediktbeuern and Kochel am See) or the car (highway A8 and normal streets) you need a little less than an hour from the center of Munich to the lake Kochelsee. Via the street ''Kesselberg'' you could reach the Walchensee by bus and car, although parking spaces are really limited in summer times.
On the lake Kochelsee, you could go by a little ship. The lake Walchensee is famous for windsurfing and other watersports for leisure time.
