What will I see?

The Crestasee offers an astounding experience of authenticity and natural serenity. The blue-green waters are surrounded by luxuriant vegetation on the shores, and a deep green crown of trees. This is indeed a fairy-tale view!
The idyllic lake is about 320m long, with a jetty and a raft in the middle. Water flows into the Crestasee underground but leaves the lake above ground. The strong inflow ensures that the lakewater is entirely renewed every few days.
