    Talsperre Bautzen Badestrand

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The dam Bauzen is fed by the Spree and was dammed up in GDR times. The reason was the power plant Boxberg, which needed water for cooling. The result is this beautiful reservoir, which was already a popular recreational area. The great sandy beach, which was also created in GDR times, you can still enjoy today. Here it is nice to swim in the lake and lie comfortably in the sand or grass. For the physical well-being provides a chilled beach bar on the lake.
