You can take a 1-hour cruise around the lake on one of the ferryboats operated by Bayerische Seenschifffahrt (tel. 08022/9-33-11). Boats operate about every 90 minutes from 8am to 8pm, and a circular tour from Tegernsee costs 16€.

In summer, you can walk and hike along the lakeshore. In winter, because of its small size, the lake freezes over, making it an attraction for skaters.
