The Arni lake is an ideal starting point for hikes as well as bike and mountain tours. Those who prefer their outdoor activities to be less physically taxing can relax in the idyllic landscapes around the picturesque Arnisee. The small, crystal-clear reservoir invites you to linger, fish and relax. Whether you prefer to cook some sausages at the barbecue area or go for a leisurely stroll around the lake (30 minutes), you won't fail to be impressed by the beauty of the area.

Two restaurants and a herdsman's hut ensure that excursion visitors won't go hungry nor thirsty.
