    Great for a little family outing. Here you can rent boats, minigolf and even skate in cold winters. For children there is a large playground and if hungry, the Oberwaldhaus invites you.

    Here you can play mini golf in summer, pedal boat or rowboat and also relax. Even in winter with frozen ice is worth a trip to skate (your own risk to bring skates).

    Great grounds with pond, playground, pony rides, etc. Ideal for families and people who like to picnic in the countryside. You can grill everywhere. On the pond you can rent rowing boats.

    "The Steinbrücker pond is located south of the Kranichstein hunting lodge. The pond is fed by the Ruthsenbach. The pond was named after the old stone bridge over the Ruthsenbach. The Steinbrücker pond was probably created by damming the Ruthsenbach under the reign of Landgrave Georg I. Landgraf George I began with systematic pond management, and fish farming helped the rulers with supplying their large households.

    The approx. 3 hectare pond is approx. 1.5 meters deep at its deepest point; and becomes flatter towards the south. The Steinbrücker pond is surrounded by forest all around. On the north side is Dieburger Straße and two weirs. There are forest meadows on the east and west sides. There is a swamp-like area on the south side. In earlier times the pond was mainly used for fish farming. Due to the flow of the Ruthsenbach it was suitable as a fishing water.

    In 1826 the pond was completely swampy and was leased as a meadow. In 1901, the Oberwaldhaus excursion restaurant was built on the site of the old forester's house. In 1904 the Steinbrücker pond was restored. In 1967 the meadow area by the pond was redesigned into a leisure and recreation center.

    In the 2010s, the pond was de-silted and the shore zone restored. Today the Steinbrücker pond also serves as a rain retention basin. "Source Wikipedia de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steinbrücker_Teich

    There are resting places everywhere around the lake. You can take a boat tour in a rowing or pedal boat on the lake.
