The best swimming lakes in the Ruhr Area

Bike Touring Collection by komoot

When the hot summer heat takes over the Ruhr Area—when the air starts to stand still and the asphalt starts to melt—there’s only one thing to do: Grab your swimwear, hop on your bike and head out to the countryside, right into the cool, fresh water. Bring a friend and a frisbee for the perfect combination.

Here are the komoot community's favorite lakes in the Ruhr Area. Discover majestic reservoirs with beautiful bathing spots, blue lagoons in the middle of nature and gorgeous white sandy beaches with cozy beach bars, so you can easily surf the next heatwave.
