After a dinner in the Frogs & Roses restaurant, the ideal place to spend the night is the nearby hotel Le Rive Sud.

Day 3 – Schwarzsee

The Lake Schwarzsee at the foot of the Pre-Alps attracts with an approximately 4 km long itinerary. When winter is particularly cold, the Lake Schwarzsee at the foot of the Pre-Alps magically transforms into a huge ice surface. Fortunately, you do not have to wait for these extreme temperatures to put on your skates. From November 2022 to February 2023, the mobile artificial ice rink offers lots of fun in the midst of a beautiful landscape. As an alternative, we recommend a visit to the Sensler Museum, where families can learn all about the region’s cultural wealth. Then the parents treat themselves to a break in the wellness area of ​​the Hostellerie am Schwarzsee and the children can splash around in the pool. At the end of the family day there is an invigorating meal for everyone in the Bad restaurant.
