    The Great Brombachsee is the largest reservoir of the Franconian Lake District and was opened in 2000. It serves to regulate the flood of the Altmühl and, above all, as a water reservoir for the rain-poor northern Bavaria. In addition, he attracts nature lovers from near and far with his beautiful bike and footpaths, the bathing beaches and the cruise ship MS Brombach.

    As the last of the lakes in the Franconian Lake District to be flooded, the Great Brombachsee is now one of the region's main attractions. This is also due to the "MS Brombachsee", the beautiful passenger trimaran that invites you to take a trip on the water. But there is also a lot to experience on the shore.

    A ship regularly sails the lake that even has a lift for strollers or wheelchair users

    The Brombachsee is an artificially created lake, but that can also have many advantages. In contrast to a natural lake, there are no private properties directly on the lake. That means you can go around the whole lake directly. Only a few places are under nature protection and lead through beautiful forest paths instead of on the banks. There are enough places to linger, relax and enjoy the view. Most of the time the lake is not overcrowded, except for a few days in summer. Anyone who is out and about during the week in spring, autumn or winter will almost die in loneliness.
