  • Walking or running along Machsee is really relaxing. During summer it is always crowded. Best time is late spring and early autumn.

  • A calm place to rest and get sun in summer and for exercising, walking or meeting friends. I always love to spend an evening once a week.
  • It is very large lake and very exciting place. So many peoples and festivals etc. Wonderful castle which reflected in the lake.
