In the broad valley of the Altmühl River, northwest from Gunzenhausen, lies the Altmühl Lake.

The lake is especially inviting for holidays and – with its bird island – is one of the most important wildlife sanctuaries for migratory birds in Bavaria. The Altmühl Lake is Franconia’s answer to the Adriatic – a wonderful lake that invites you to swim, sail and surf.
