The lake Tegernsee has a surface area of approximately 9 square kilometres and is known as one of the cleanest lakes in Bavaria which makes it perfect for holidays and sightseeing. The lake is located in the south of Munich, the Bavarian capital at an elevation of 726 metres. The lake Tegernsee has a maximum depth of 73 metres, a lenght of 6,5 kilometers and a maximum width of 1,4 kilometers. The lake developed as a result of the melting of the ice age glaciers.
With the train (stations at Gmund am Tegernsee and the city Tegernsee) or the car (highway A8 and normal streets) you need a little less than an hour from the center of Munich to the lake Tegernsee.
The lake Tegernsee has two bigger bays and one island. The river Mangfall leaves the lake in the northern end of the Tegernsee at Gmund.Like many other lakes in Bavaria, the lake Tegernsee is a popular location for watersports and leisure time.
