The Tegernsee is a Zungenbecken lake in the Bavarian Alps in southern Germany. The lake is the centre of a popular recreation area 50 kilometres (31 mi) south-east of Munich. Resorts on the lake include the eponymous Tegernsee, as well as Bad Wiessee, Kreuth, Gmund, and Rottach-Egern.
The lake is some 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) in length, with a width of 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) and an area of 8.934 square kilometres (3.449 sq mi). It reaches a maximum depth of 72.6 metres (238 ft), with an average depth of 36.3 metres (119 ft), and the normal water level is 725.5 metres (2,380 ft) above sea level. The lake flows into the River Mangfall, a tributary of the River Inn and thence the River Danube.
The buildings of the former Benedictine monastery of Tegernsee Abbey lie on the banks of the lake. Now in private hands, they are now known as Schloss Tegernsee.
The area around the lake is linked to Munich by rail through trains of the Bayerische Oberlandbahn, which, in the final part of their journey, travel over the tracks of the privately owned Tegernsee-Bahn. Pleasure boat services serve several points on the lake, and are operated by boats of the Bayerische Seenschifffahrt company.

A pleasant view across the lake despite the stormy weather. The church placed slightly off-centre makes an excellent focal point. I like the soft light and colours.

A beautiful scenery. Indeed these Alpine lakes are most beautiful and provide similar lovely scenes centred around the small villages surrounding it. The mountains create a grand background as well

I like the way you have divided the scene,the lake, the village, the mountains and the sky. The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The cloudy sky has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Georg, Very beautiful landscape. I like the open sea in the FG and the vivid waves add so much life to the composition. The colourful buildings of the Tegernsee are captured with perfect focus along with high quality details. The mountains are the great backdrop for the frame. Fantastic nature scenery. Thank for sharing

a beautiful lake here with such a nice architecture at background. Like the hills at far with those interesting clouds at their top. Excellent composition. Tfs.

cześć Jurek, pieknie sfotografowałeś to jezioro i kościół nad brzegiem. Super kolory i ostrość. Wspaniała pocztówka.

urocze miasteczko i bardzo dobry pomysl z troche panoramicznym kadrem. Kolory sa naturalne i jednoczesnie nasycone, co musialo byc malym wyzwaniem przy tak ograniczonym swietle. Zachmurzone niebo zdecydowanie dodaje uroku calej scenie.
