The lake, formed about 18,000 years ago, at the time the large alpine glaciers melted, is at an altitude of 446.5m. It is a popular tourist destination for swimming, water sports and biking around it. On the first Saturday in August the lake becomes the stage of a great firework display with thousands of spectators.
