    From the "Unter den Linden" square you can reach the legendary Burgsee with its idyllic promenade via the "Seepforte", which used to be just a small gate in the city wall. The lake is located in the middle of the city and invites you to linger. In 1755, on November 1st, an unusual movement of the Burgsee was registered. A connection with an earthquake in Lisbon, which is assumed in local literature, probably belongs to the realm of fable.

    The Burgsee is a lake with an area of 10.33 hectares and a circumference of 1.15 km, created by salt deposition. On the rocky shore, it reaches a depth of up to 25 meters, while otherwise it is between 2 and 10 meters deep. The Burgsee has no visible tributary. Salty springs on the ground and rainwater feed it.

    The possibility of a connection to other collapse lakes in the area was also investigated, for example to the Buchensee near Wildbrechtroda. The outflow of the lake must be constantly regulated, as the water level is 5 meters higher than the old town.

    A lap around the lake is very relaxing. You always keep your eyes on the water fountains.

    The lake is a magnet for the Bad Salzungen health resort.

    Unfortunately, various restrictions are currently to be expected due to the construction work around the Burgsee. With a little effort and small detours, one or the other round is still possible. ;-)
