    The Baldeneysee, dammed up in 1931 as a water reservoir and for the clarification of the Ruhr water, is today a recreational area of supraregional rank. Rowing clubs, sailing and surfing schools around the 2.7 km² lake invite you to active leisure. Once a year, the elite of German sailors meet here for Essen Week, the largest German lake racing regatta.The 14.7 km long lap to cover the lake with inline skates, on foot or by bicycle, is among the sports visitors among the sea visitors to the largest recreational pleasure. If you like it more comfortable, you will get to know the wooded banks of the lake and Ruhr from the ships of the "White Fleet".An eye-catcher in the heights: the Villa Hügel, residence of the industrialist family Krupp until the 1940s and today the scene of high-caliber art-historical exhibitions.
    The White Fleet Baldeney sets sail from April to October - for a round trip over Essen's domestic waters or equal to the long-distance cruise on the Ruhr in the neighboring town of Mülheim - Landgang in Essen-Kettwig on request inclusive. From June to September, scheduled services also take place on the MS innogy, a methanol-powered, CO2-neutral electric ship.
    The Baldeneysteig, an approximately 27-kilometer loop around the Baldeneysee, provides a unique nature experience with its well-marked hiking trails.

  • As a surfing, swimming and sailing paradise, the Baldeneysee is one of the most important recreation and water sports centers in the Ruhr area. The largest Ruhr reservoir stretches for a good 8 km in length and up to 650 m in width between forested hills in the south of Essen, lined with sunbathing lawns, cycling, inline skating and hiking trails, beach pools, boat docks and restaurants.
    At this point the MOOSBACH flows into Lake Baldeney.
