    On Biggesee, cyclists can look forward to beautiful paths and great infrastructure. On a tour around the reservoir, the waters are always enchanting with their picturesque sights - blue waters, surrounded by lovely hills covered with green forests.

    In summer, the lake also scores with countless bathing places, where you can take a break and jump into the cool water. From secluded coves on free beaches to beach resorts you can find everything.

    More information about the bathing areas at Biggesee can be found here: biggesee-listersee.com/baden

    The Biggedamm was built in the 1950s and 60s and dams up the Bigge to the huge Biggesee. The dam is very impressive and has a height of over 50 meters. In addition to power generation, the main task is to regulate the water level in winter in order to protect the lower regions along the Lenne and the Ruhr from flooding. You have a particularly beautiful view over the dam and the lake from the Skywalk Biggeblick on the slope directly east of the lake.

    The potato soup with inlay in the lighthouse on Biggedamm is delicious.
    In January 2018 the restaurant is probably closed. It is recommended to get informed in advance.

    At the Biggesse there is the YACHT Club Lister, a sailing club with delicious Greek cuisine, with a very nice outdoor terrace and fantastic views over the lake.

    A somewhat arduous increase, but definitely rewarded.
