    This lake is an insider tip, wonderful atmosphere through the island with seagulls on it ... reminiscent of the sea ...

    An idyllic place to relax a little and switch off from everyday life.

    Sometimes paths and paths run close to the water, if you want to take photos you will get your money's worth here.

    Nice and quiet, there was not much going on on our visit day. Great place, especially for high summer.

    The stream that babbles down from the slope over the overlapping concrete tubs is a pretty photo motif.

    Lignite was mined in the region from the late 19th to the mid-20th century. The recultivation of the areas began in 1925. The existing opencast mines filled with groundwater and were largely left to their own devices. This is how the Franziskussee was created in 1964. In 1966, the Bundeswehr created two islands to provide nesting places for birds. The roost was accepted by Common Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gulls. The lake was therefore initially designated as a landscape conservation area in 1972 and has been under nature protection in parts since 1984, together with the forests bordering to the south and west.
