5KS7829 - Lake Forggensee Bavaria, Germany

Lake Forggensee, at the foot of the German Alps and near to the Neuschwanstein Castle, serves as a 15 square kilometer reservoir in the river "Lech" in order the supply electricity and regulate the water amounts to prevent floodings. In Winter however the water is left out and the whole - except for the course of the river itself - falls dry and turns in a dessert like space.

While descending towards the river the rooftop of the "Festspielhaus" (a musical theatre at the lakeside) pops up from behind a rim.
