Lakes & public pools
On warm summer days, there’s nothing better than jumping into the cool water of a lake or public pool after your hike – and that’s just what you can do at the foot of the Zugspitze. You want to immerse yourself in the crystal-clear water of a mountain lake or relax in the sun at one of the bathing lidos? The Loisach river is yet another refreshing option for a dip in the water on the Tyrolean side of the Zugspitze. Besides going for a swim, you can look forward to some fun on the water at Lake Heiterwanger See – either on a stand-up paddle board or aboard a ship. And in case it isn’t perfect swimming weather, indoor pools are a great alternative.
