Bike Touring Highlight
The Great Sea is a naturally formed Niedermoorsee and lies between Aurich and Emden at Bedekaspel in the Südbrookmerland, on the edge of the East Frisian Geest in the transition to Emsmarsch. The lake is the fourth-largest lake in Lower Saxony with a free water area of about 289 hectares (with reed bedding areas about 400 hectares). The Great Sea is - except for a few deeper places - only 0.5 to 1.0 meters deep. It is divided into two nearly separate water areas (north and south). A special feature is that the mean water level due to artificial drainage is 1.4 meters below sea level (NN).
