Our Lake – Swimming and Bathing Fun, Water Sports, and Relaxation


Summer, sun, and water. Is there anything nicer than taking a refreshing swim or paddling in a rubber boat across the lake?

Our lake has a very good water quality throughout which is tested at regular intervals. You can check the results at "Badegewässerkarte des LUBW" [the swimming waters map published by the Regional Office for the Environment, Measurements, and the Protection of Nature of the State of Baden-Württemberg].

The non-swimmers' area is cordoned off by buoys so that even the little ones can enjoy their bathing fun. During swimming hours, our staff or a DLRG rescue team look after your safety.

Come and unwind while enjoying the sunshine on our spacious and well-kept lawn for sunbathing.
