Schwarzsee Ice Palace

The vacation region around the Lake Schwarzsee in the Eastern Freiburg Pre-Alps (Voralpen) is well-known for its authenticity and its wild, romantic natural landscape, which includes the dark appearance of the lake and the Brecca Abyss, an Alpine valley formed by glaciers.

According to legend, the water of the Lake Schwarzsee has been so dark since a giant washed his feet in the lake. Depending on the light conditions, the mountain lake shimmers in various hues, ranging up to turquoise-blue. Farms, residences and inns that are widely scattered around the lake make up the vacation resort of Schwarzsee, the gateway to the family-friendly Black Lake region.
