It connects to the north of the Hellbachtal located south of Mölln, and is also the first lake in the Möllner Seenkette.
The gullet lake is about 2 km long, up to 450 m wide and has an area of 73 ha. The mean lake level is 14 m above sea level. It is only 8 m deep and shows in some marginal areas silting forms, which are evident by uferernhe reeds. He is fed by the Hellbach, which springs near the village of Gudow. In the middle of the lake is a small and uninhabited island, the Bismarckinsel.
The lake is a nature reserve and is located in the Lauenburg Lakes Nature Park. Driving on the lake with pleasure boats is not allowed.
