Lake Ammersee in the region of Bavaria is the sixth-biggest lake in Germany, covering an area of almost 50 square kilometres. The lake developed from melting glaciers which were in the area during the ice age. It is a popular destination for people who enjoy water sports.

位于Bavaria 地区的Ammersee 湖是德国第六大湖,大概有50平方公里。这个湖是因为冰河时代大冰川的融化而形成的。 如今这里是许多水上运动爱好者的理想目的地。
