Lake Titisee is the largest natural lake in the Black Forest stretching for 2 kilometres. The lake is famed for its pure, clear waters, the reason for this is that the lake was formed by the Feldberg glacier, when the area was home to sabre tooth tigers and woolly mammoths. When the glacier moved on, what was left was Lake Titisee as we know it. With the forest and mountains providing an arresting backdrop the area is a popular tourist attraction, with a vast array of outdoor activities including walking trails that give unadulterated views over the valley, windsurfing and sailing. With plenty of beer gardens there’s also the option to just soak up the rays with a nice cold beer!
Lake Constance on the Rhine sits at the northern foot of the Alps, at 63 kilometres in length it is made up of three bodies of water: The Obersee (upper Lake Constance), the Untersee (lower Lake Constance) and the connecting stretch of the Rhine – The Seerhein. Formed by the Rhine Glacier during the ice age, the lake stretches across Germany, Switzerland and Austria making it the third largest freshwater lake in Europe.
Both lakes are featured on our rideout days, and are very popular with customers looking for a day of relaxing by the water.
