    Badestrand Fermasee

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Today you hardly even notice Lake Fermase that it is actually a quarry lake. Nature has spread here again, making the lake so beautiful and versatile. If you are interested in birds, you can see some here at the lake. If you prefer a quiet swimming area with shady trees looking for, you're also right. In the southeastern part of the lake there is a nice quiet beach where swimming is allowed.

    We were back for swimming in the Bärenlochweiher, a free usable Naturbadeweiher with changing rooms and games on the very beautiful playground at Bärenloch in Kindsbach in Kaiserslautern.
