When hot summer heat is taking over Dresden, when the air is standing still and the asphalt melting, there’s only one right to do: Grab your swimwear, hop on your bike and head out of the city, right into the cool, fresh water. Bring a friend, a frisbee and a watermelon to make it perfect. Here are the most popular lakes of our Dresden users. They take you to impressive dams, romantic ponds with wooded shores and large sandy beaches for the extra holiday feeling, so you can easily surf the next heatwave.

    Kiesgrube Leuben

    Bike Touring Highlight

    At the gravel pit Leuben there is a waterskiing facility and a cozy beach bar. The Dresdner also like to come to the lake to bathe, although this is officially prohibited. If you also want to get your feet wet for a while, the eastern shore is recommended, because the beach is particularly flat here.
