Tips

  • JR56

    The eight-kilometer tour around the lake begins at the beginning of the lake promenade at the Jahn monument. From this point you not only have a wonderful view of the beautifully situated Großer Segeberger See, but also of the 89-meter-high, wooded Kagelsberg, the 81-meter-high Moosberg and the houses of Stipsdorf. The lake has a size of 178 hectares, a length of 2.6 kilometers and measures 12 meters at its deepest point. The city of Bad Segeberg is the owner, but has leased it to the Segeberger Sportfischerverein. Seven clubs practice their water sports on the water. The lake may not be used with motor boats.

  • Within the lakes of East Holstein, the Great Segeberger See is characterized by a special history.
    After a salt dome with gypsum or anhydrite rock rose to the surface due to salt tectonics, groundwater released after the thawing of the glacial permafrost could gradually dissolve rock salt and gypsum in the subsoil and leach out cavities in the subsoil (subrosion). The overlying rock and sediment layers sagged, leaving depressions that filled with water. In the process, several lake basins were formed, which were initially covered by a contiguous body of water. After a natural lowering of the lake level, possibly due to a sinkhole event at a later time, the original body of water divided into the Großer Segeberger See and the significantly smaller Klüthsee to the northeast.
    The Große Segeberger See is part of the gypsum karst landscape of Bad Segeberg and is therefore related to the Kalkberg and its cave

  • The Great Segeberger See was formed at the end of the last ice age around 12,000 years ago. The ice had pushed a terminal moraine and a thick layer of sand and gravel in front of it. As the ice thawed, the underlying salt went into solution and the overlying Diluvium sagged. This is how the troughing of the Segeberger See and the north-east adjoining Klüthsee was created. Since the border between the terminal moraine and the gravel surface lay just above the area where the salt had dissolved, the picture that still exists today emerged: the gravel plain breaks off steeply and in a straight line and thus forms the steep west bank of the lake.

  • Very similar to the Great Eutin Lake, the long shores are also very different here: the western shore is dominated here by forest and deferments of a terminal moraine, formed by glaciers from the last ice age. We walk either at the foot of the hill directly along the water or on the ridge.
