The special thing about this lake is the location. There are many stories about this area. One of them is that of the Epprather Werewolf, who was active in the Middle Ages and was caught nearby. In addition, here some national tourist trails lead past. There are also prepared running routes that lead past the path. The historic town of Alt-Kaster is definitely worth a visit. If you still have some time, you can also include the Kasterer Höhe in the hike. Near the lake is also a very nice children's playground. Very nice for the little ones to have a break there.

Simple comfortable hiking trail. If you walk on the west side of the lake you have a beautiful view of the lake. The east side is wooded. During the week we were the only guests in Alt-Kaster. Beautiful medieval place. For the stay with hike around the lake (about 2.5 km), comfortable stop should be scheduled 3 hours

The local recreation area, which is directly adjacent to the historic town center of Alt-Kaster, was created by extensive recultivation measures in the course of lignite mining in this region.
Through the creation of an approximately 8 ha forest area, the Kasterer Höhe, and an embedded lake, the Kasterer See, an important local recreation area has been created here, which contributes to Bedburg remaining a city in the countryside.
The Mühlenerft feeds and flushes around the Kasterer See, which was created in the area of the former Frimmersdorf opencast mine and was completed in 1984. The lake is located in a forest island, in which the endangered elm was planted in large numbers as a particularly typical type of hardwood floodplain forest.
Lake Kaster is designed in such a way that it can be used for different purposes. While the south-west bank serves local recreation, the east bank is largely inaccessible and reserved for nature. There are numerous wetlands and nesting sites for water birds. The lake with a max. Length of 1000 m and width of 125 m offers ideal conditions for observation walks.
