When red and yellow begin to dye the beech forest surrounding the lake, this area becomes a hugely popular pleasure cruise, and the trees of the 2,000+ meter mountains, the best place to see it all is from the deck of a boat. Also, since the mountaintops are always snowy, in the height of the leaf-viewing season you can catch sight of snow-capped mountains with their lower halves dressed in bright autumn leaves every year.
