    Ümminger See (Bochum)

    On the trail of mining

    The Ümminger See in Bochum is one of the gems in the area and is suitable for both walks and as an intermediate destination for hikes or excursions with MTB or trekking bike.

    At the last stage of the Harpener Bach before it flows into the Langendreerbach, lies the Ümminger See. It is a popular excursion destination and, in the middle of the Ruhr area, the original mining pond offers numerous opportunities for recreation.
    Walkers, hikers, cyclists and joggers will find an extensive network of paths around the lake - which is not much larger than the Harpener Teiche, but is perceived more easily from the banks because of its geometry - with numerous seating and various leisure options. A playground, a roller skating rink, a model boat jetty for electric RC boats, a halfpipe, sports equipment and sunbathing areas offer options for different tastes, from sporting activities, family leisure to idle time. Inline skaters do not have ideal conditions here because of the rough but easily accessible paths.

    From the Wittener road down and schwupps one is in the recreational area. Currently (May 2017) it is especially nice here, as all sorts of birds can be seen with their chicks.

    Lake Ümminger offers a home to many waterfowl, as they can find enough food here and breed undisturbed. 🦆🐟🐛🐝🦗

    The lake has an area of ​​10.43 hectares and serves as a recreational area. The area around the lake is bounded on the west by the A 43, in the south by the B 226, in the east by an adjacent commercial area and in the north by the railway line Essen-Überruhr-Bochum-Langendreer.

    The lake is fed by the Harpen brook, which flows through the lake from north to south and drains it over the Oelbach into the Ruhr

    From there you can watch all the hustle and bustle on and in the water.
    From time to time boat model builders are also on site.
