does it ever ice over enough to skate on?

basically there is very few water most of the time...and than it must be 50 years ago or so that the lake was frozen, and people were walking over to Lindau or Wasserburg.

I have a book from "Oskar Spang" a local photographer who did some pictures in the40s or 50s or where you can see the frozen lake. I'm sure you can google him...:-)

@striatic: hm, I can google him, but never mind...I found a picture from him of the early 60s, where people walk over the lake :-)
