    A bike ride to the Edersee is always worthwhile. Especially in summer, it is especially beautiful here, because then the deciduous forests on the banks are beautiful green. On hot days, it is wonderful to swim in the reservoir. You can just look for your favorite spot on the shore to relax and refresh in the water. If you prefer to swim on a supervised beach, the DLRG beach is recommended.

    The most beautiful lake in the region. Currently even at full traffic.

    The cable ferry on the Fulda is not part of the tour
    It is the Edersee ferry. Scheid-Bringhausen

    Here you can currently see very well how low the water level in the Edersee.

    The Edersee is currently half empty. The foundations of the flooded villages can be visited, on the old bridge at Asel South the Eder can be crossed.

    The Edersee cycle path marked "ER" meanwhile leads around the whole lake. On the north side you have to overcome some altitude at Basdorf. Two ferries allow for a shortcut.

    Very beautiful lake with many cycling and hiking trails. Good start possibility from the P + R car park Herzhausen. From there, the bike path can be taken around the lake. On the way great views of the lake. It goes through forest roads, on gravel and paved roads, partly through campsites.

    You should definitely have seen the Edersee even at low tide!

    The extra bike path along the route from the barrier wall to Niederwerbe offers a magnificent view of -, and over the lake!
