GPS parking 47°07'22.3"N 9°08'46.8"E  |  GPS entrance 1) 47°07'23.1"N 9°08'42.9"E, or 2) 47°07'26.2"N 9°08'30.7"E (see under Entrance/Exit below)

Parking & attendance Space for more than 20 cars. Note that it is only accessible from the road from Mühlehorn to Weesen (one-way road).

Entrance / Exit

Option 1 | At the end of the parking, where a bridge for pedestrians goes over the road, follow the path down to the lake. Best exit via the steps in front of the parking lot.

Option 2 | Follow the pavement until the tunnel and then the path leading to the lake. This path can be tricky with the complete scuba gear as it is steep and can be slippery. Best exit via the steps in front of the parking lot.


Option 1 | You can then dive for 5-10 minutes to the left towards Zurich at 8 m until you hit the wall. Indeed, right in front of the parking the wall only starts at 45 m; it slowly goes up to ca. 10 m towards Zurich.

Option 2 | Follow the ground to a depth of ca. 10 m, where the wall starts (and drops to over 50 m). You can then follow the wall on either side.

Toilets A tree, a shrub, or a bush will have to do the trick.

Eat / Drink Trattoria Walensee in Weesen.
