    The Altmühlsee is a 4km long reservoir. The construction was planned in 1970 and in February 1985 began with the flooding of the lake. Around the lake there is a beautiful cycling and hiking trail (12Km)

    The Altmühlsee is a wonderful lake that invites you to swim, sail and surf. In the summer season, the excursion boat "MS Altmühlsee" connects the leisure centers on its banks: the Gunzenhausen lake center, the Schlungenhof surf center, the Muhr am See lake center and the Wald lake center.More info / source:

    The Altmühl flows around the Altmühlsee. In case of a flood, an introduction of Altmühlwasser takes place in the lake. The Altmühlsee serves as a buffer before the transfer to the Brombachsee. Because of the shallow valley, the lake is surrounded by an annular dam. The water level is thus up to 3 m above the surrounding terrain.

    The cycle route is paved and approved for skaters.
    If you want to walk around the lake on foot in winter, you should take enough food with you. An open refreshment stop was nowhere to be found on the lake.
