Looking to get some relaxing exercise? Then hire a row boat or pedal boat next door for a leisurely excursion on the lake. In winter, a stroll around the lake with its idyllic banks is a rare treat. Or take part in a guided walk with the St. Bernhard dogs – they love affection! Don’t miss: an enchanting visit to the alpine garden and its sculpture exhibition, as well as a trip to the artillery fort.
