    The nature reserve Lanstroper See is located on the territory of Dortmund in the district Scharnhorst, in the district Lanstrop. The Lanstroper lake was built around 1963 by a subsidence, which reached the groundwater level and thus ensured that this area was permanently flooded. The almost 8 ha lake is at its deepest point almost 5 m deep. The lake is surrounded by a narrow reed and reed belt, which also grow rushes, hedgehog flats, willowherb and stinging nettles. North of the lake has grown a forest and brushwood strip that provides habitat for the endangered small frog, the common frog and the common toad.
