In the beginning the tour from Freiersburger hut has some steep ascents before you turn onto the root paths down to the lake. Already at half of the way you will encounter the first resting place with a great view on the Glaswaldsee. A tiny hut as well as benches invite travelers to rest and refresh at the lake.
Tips and hintsNationalparkregion - Der Glaswaldsee
We follow a wild footpath covered in lots of tree roots. While walking we can catch a first glimpse at the lake. Having developed during the last ice age, the Glaswaldsee is one of the most beautiful Lakes in the whole Black forest region.
The tranquility and peacefulness of the Lake definitely makes the descent worth your while. A narrow footpath leads around the lake.
We make our way back to the starting point the same way we came.
