The lake lies in a very hilly terrain and the lake reaches a depth of up to 12 meters and mostly consists of spring water. It is a favorite excursion destination with the King's chair (82 m high) just south of Slåensø, from where there is a nice view to the north over the lake and Borresø.Show more
