Bike Touring Highlight
In the middle of the city area of Lünen near Düsseldorf, this bathing lake with a size of just 300 x 200 meters fits perfectly into its surroundings. In the past the area was home to the Landesgartenschau Lünen, today there is a lake with legend and writing 5,000 m² sandy beach and a green lawn with large trees. The entertainment of smaller bathers is the "play park Kreikenhof" with its slides, sandboxes and logs to romp and have fun.

The Seepark is located on the site of the Lünen State Garden Show ("LaGaLü") that took place here in 1996. It is about 60 hectares and partly covers mining areas of the former Prussian colliery and agricultural areas. The core of the park is the nine hectare Lake Horstmar, artificially created for the garden show, with its bathing beach in the north and east and a quiet and nature reserve in the west and south. In addition, there are large meadows with herbaceous gardens as individual islands. The Preußenhalde rises to the south of the site. Together with the Horstmarer Loch, a deep mountain depression that is used for disk golf, it is practically the only relic that points to the original use of the area.

If the weather is really nice, please avoid it, because then the lake is hopelessly overcrowded and you can hardly get by on a bike. Otherwise very nice and it is not far to the city center of Lüneburg. Nearby is now also a new ice cream parlor has been opened new rewe Center on the Preussenstrasse.
