When the hot summer heat takes over Baden-Württemberg—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 Baden-Württemberg. Discover the big and small pearls of the Black Forest, which enchant with fresh water and fairy-tale panorama. Dive into the cool waters of the Swabian Forest and the most beautiful quarry lakes with coZy beaches—so you can easily surf the next heatwave.

    Ebnisee

    Hiking Highlight

    The Ebnisee in the Swabian Forest is always a nice destination. In summer, it is wonderful swimming in the lake with the dreamy scenery. If you prefer to stay dry, you can rent a pedal boat or rowboat. Several cozy beer gardens on the shore are ideal for resting and eating.

    Bucher Stausee

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Bucher Reservoir is not only great for biking, but also to take a break. On the shore, there are several kiosks where you can strengthen yourself and on hot days, the bathing place invites you to linger, refresh and relax. Here you can not only hop in the water and swim, but also relax on the large lawn or the sandy beach really good.

    Bürgerseen

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Nevertheless, I would not call the lake in which you swim, as a bathing lake. You really can not swim there, that's more a fight against aquatic plants. In our opinion, the lake is not called "Entenklo" for nothing!
    May be nice to look at but who is used to proper bathing lakes will have no joy here ...

    The Mindelsee is embedded in the nature reserve of the same name, which offers a habitat for numerous plants, insects, birds and other animals. On the north shore of the western tip of the lake, you will find a hidden bathing spot in the middle of nature, which is known as a beach. Here you reach over a footbridge into the water of the beautiful lake.
