Like a green jewel, tucked away in a nature protection area, lies the crystal clear mountain lake of Thumsee.In summer a popular swimming lake and in winter a favorite spot for ice skating and ice curling - Thumsee lake is an idyllic recreational area throughout the whole year for visitors and locals alike.
It is about a kilometer long and 20 meters deep. Because of the depth, it is also used for diving.
Turquoise water lake
Many Bad Reichenhall residents' lake of choice is Thumsee with its turquoise water, beach and beautiful lawn for sunbathing. The circular route around the lake is equally charming. At the outskirts of Bad Reichenhall, the Saalach River is dammed by a separation barrier in Kibling to form the impressive Saalach Lake.
Go on a peaceful bike ride or take a walk upriver and around the lake while enjoying the beautiful natural setting. If you enjoy watching animals, visit Listsee Lake. Numerous fish splash about in the crystal clear water and the lake, as well as the surroundings, are a protected conservation area.
