Hopfensee is a lake in Bayerisch Schwaben, Bavaria, Germany. At an elevation of 783.8 m, its surface area is 194 ha.

The maximum length of the lake is 2.1 km, and its circumference is 6.8 km. It lies north of Füssen in Ostallgäu. Its maximum depth is 10 m. It was formed by the Lechtal glacier and is one of the remains of a larger Fuessener See. The Hopfensee-Ach flows out of the lake and into the Forggensee.

On the northeast shore is the resort Hopfen am See. There is a campground on the east shore. Besides swimming, which is possible as early as the end of May, boating, sailing, and wind surfing are popular activities.

The north shore has a spectacular view of the Allgäu Alps.

This is really beautiful view and beautiful place, I love such lakes and when the sun is setting it's gettin even better. I can't stop lookin at it, it's amazing. Great job.


Hy Pam
Such image is quite rare lately! And I am wandering why is so depreciated? In my humble opinion, from the technical point of view, the execution is superb, the atmosphere is calm, inviting to meditation. Maybe the pillar is not really part of natural world, but I don't mind! A lovely image!

My kind regards,

WOW Pam!!! What a wonderful shot!!! I really like it very much!!!

The light is awesome and I like the line formed by the wharf bringing our eyes toward the sun. The ripples on the water bring textures to the picture too. Very well done and presented !!!

Bye and TFS,


Hello Pam,
