The boulevard at the Sebastian Hospital is 200 meters long and cost 2.2 million euros to be completed in 2012.
The attractive steel structure is not only useful for those seeking relaxation. It also serves to improve the water quality: flow guides are attached to the support structure of the web. They are intended to increase the flow speed of the Pegnitz so that the lake is not silted up with suspended matter.
The Wöhrder See was created as a flood protection for the city of Nuremberg and put into operation in 1981. This resulted in a reduced drag force of the water and more and more suspended matter remained. The depth of the water decreased over the years and the sun was therefore able to heat the water more. Warmer water was ideal for the growth of the plants. The water quality declined due to the rotting plants and there was an increase in digestive gases that could be smelled especially in summer. Silting increased steadily. To fix the problems, the lake would always have to be dredged completely.
