    At the site of a much smaller predecessor, the Hofmannsweiher in its current extent (16 ha) was built by the year 1668th Since the formerly much higher pent up Dreifelder pond caused floods in Dreifelden repeatedly, was established in 1744 a connecting channel between Dreifelder pond and Hofmannsweiher.With this "flood ditch", water could flow out of the Dreifelder Weiher during snowmelt or heavy precipitation, without having to operate the difficult-to-use drainage devices. The canal was filled when the Dreifelder Weiher was lowered to its present size around 1840.

    The Hoffmannsweiher is a little out of the way, cannot be reached directly by car and is therefore not as busy as the neighboring Dreifelder Weiher. The pond can be reached either from the parking lot of the "Haus am See" at the Dreifelder Weiher or as part of the 7-Weiher Weg (total 30 km, sometimes very poorly signposted).
