- The second largest lake in Upper Bavaria became famous when "Fairytale King" Ludwig II lost his life on its banks amid mysterious circumstances in 1886. The spot is now marked with a cross and still attracts hoards of tourists. The village of Berg is also of interest as it is where the Kings of Bavaria used to have their summer retreat. Organized boat trips offer great views of the mountains and the villas along the waterfront. An array of restaurants and taverns provide visitors with all they need in terms of refreshments.
