Thank God our Son noticed this lake from afar! Most tourists like me are so intent on Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles, we miss the Alpsee all together (which would have been a shame). If you have time, just walk over to the lake from where the Neuschwanstein bus lets you off. FYI, tap water is drinkable/potable in all of Germany. While I'm used to drinking still water, most Germans prefer sparkling water (goes through carbonation process making it effervescent). I must admit, the water fountain at the ticket center bus stop had the best tasting water!

I didn't aware of Lake Alpsee when i planned for the trip. I rented a car and drove to visit Neuschwanstein. I found Parking P4 the nearest parking to the bus stop to the castle. Lake Alpsee is about 5 minutes walk from bus stop. Surprisingly, the water is crystal clear, it could mirror the surrounding landscape!

This beautiful lake on the shores of Hohenschwangau is a beautiful cold water leak at the base of two wonderful castles. Take a moment and follow the easy walking trail around the side of the lake for excellent views of both castles.
