Tips

  • Michi LE

    Since the completion of the embankment design, greening and afforestation in 1997/98, the Raßnitzer See, which emerged from the Merseburg-Ost opencast mine that was shut down in 1991 together with the Wallendorfer See immediately to the west, has developed into both a popular recreation area and an important natural refuge. Cycling and hiking trails with observation points lead around the lake.On its north bank, a covered observation tower offers the best perspectives of the landscape between Elster-Saale-Aue, the Schkopau power plant, Halle and Leipzig. The lake is an important retreat for flora and fauna, and it is of particular importance for numerous water bird species both as a breeding ground and as a resting and wintering area. The dumping area between the two lakes, which was originally used for agriculture, was naturalized based on the neighboring floodplain landscapes.Source: leipziger-neuseenland.org/rassnitzer-see

    Very nice spots nature. Here you come for a long time, if you want to circle the Raßnitzer lake. Starting at the natural beach, coming from the Elster bridge, you keep to the right and pass the great lookout tower of the Raßnitzer lake. From the top you have a great view of the lake. Then it goes on counterclockwise on the trail through the forest. At some point it turns left and you can walk on the western side of the Raßnitzer lake or east side of the Wallendorf lake between the two. From here it is only about 4 km to the Radler-Treff wine cellar Wallendorf. You can see here again and again small bays on Lake Raßnitzer, inviting you to swim.
