Ponds in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) area - Posted: 1 year ago by Krampus
Ahoy! Talking about ponds in our particular region, we are very fortunate to have several areas fed with pristine Alpine mountain water sources and one in particular by an underground thermal source, so no freezing, etc, etc. And best of all, no friggin' bird poop nor underwater vegetation. Can't beat that. There is a nice park with its nice pond called "Loisachbad" just a few hundred meters from home which is my "official" homeport. However, during winter the place to go is the Badersee, that non-freezing pond I just mentioned. Other places to go about 20 minutes from here driving north towards Munich are the Kochelsee (near Murnau), Starnbergsee, and the Olympia Park, about 1 hour north from here in Munich. That one is nice but unfortunately the area is a minefield of bird poop. And the Plansee, a mega beautiful place about 30 minutes from here in the Austrian side. Cheers, b.

You're very lucky to have access to lakes such as those.
I wish we had some like that here in Cheshire. I could run my fast electric flat out. I have tried a couple of sailing clubs who use the Cheshire Meres but they don't cater for models.

Hi Krampus, I visited a lovely lake some years ago in your area called 'Wolfgangsee' can you sail there?

An international informal newly formed group of scratch-built and kit-built RC boat builders based in the Southern German alpine region. 1 hour south of Munich, 45 minutes from Innsbruck, Austria. Crystal clear water ponds and clean lakes around. Welcoming any kind of boat builder of any age. Just a passion for the hobby is required.

From here, in the warm but cloudy side, 28 or 29 C for tomorrow. This weekend I'm taking the family (they are here for my kid's school vacation) to the Maryland Eastern Shore (Ocean City, etc) so I bet it will be boat eye candy. Annapolis is near here as well. Super nice. If you visit Garmisch in October, take one of your boats and visit either the Badersee or closer to the Bowling alley you can take it to the pond I mentioned to you earlier (Loisachbad, by the playground). Their website is They have a small snack shack with little chairs and tables, so you got the whole deal. You will love that pond and best of all, the water is clean enough to swim in case your boat goes adrift.

Sounds good to me 👍 Might just do that.
Signing off now, it's 2:15 here now. Spent half the night programming and testing a new RC set and various ESCs! All A OK 😊
Cheers and good night, Doug 😎
PS have fun in Ocean City, I assume boat eye candy is what I know as candy floss?
