Looking for a perfect swimming lake in the mountains? Well, that alpine lake an be found in Oberstdorf, Allgäu in the German Alps!

Lake Freibergsee is not only perfect for hiking and enjoying that precious Allgäu air but also for swimming in both summer and winter, if you are brave enough:)

It’s located directly at the ski flying hill in Oberstdorf and you can choose various options to get to there:

1. for short trips you can start at the car park “Renksteg” (free parking) and then a short 15 minute hike to the lake.
2. For half-day trips, you can start at the “Söllereck” and wander all the way through the forest to the lake.
3. For day-trips, we recommend you hike up the “Söllereck” and then walk a really nice panorama path – which is accessible all year long.

Enjoy the swims and stay wild!
