The Großer Seddiner See, often simply Seddiner See, formerly Seddinsee, is the second largest lake in the Nuthe-Nieplitz Nature Park with 218 hectares after the Blankensee (280 hectares). It has an average depth of 3 and a maximum of 7.2 meters. Its edge zones are largely reeded. There are several sandy beaches by the lake, the largest in Kähnsdorf. Motor boats are prohibited on this lake.The small Seddiner See (around 4.4 hectares) connects to the western end of the elongated body of water, separated by Bundesstraße 2. A narrow strip of land on the south-east bank also separates the Kähnsdorfer See (around 26 hectares) from the Großer Seddiner See.The shallow lakes were formed in the Brandenburg stage of the Vistula glacial period around 20,000 years ago.An approximately 10-kilometer circular hiking trail around the Seddiner Lakes is part of the 66 Lakes Regional Park Route, a hiking trail around Berlin.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Großer_Seddiner_See

Really nice landscape. However, apart from the designated areas, the bank may not be entered in order not to endanger the growth of plants in these areas after the considerable loss of water in recent years. Too many "nature lovers" ignore this. Many residents from the neighboring communities are committed to protecting this lake. Noteworthy are the hedges that have now been created to protect the riparian zones in coordination with the nature conservation authority. So dear hiking friends, respect your limits!
