    The Altmühlsee is a real highlight, both for cyclists and for water sports enthusiasts. There is a nice bike path around the lake around, also invites the lake for swimming, sailing or surfing.

    In the northern part of the lake is the bird island, which is one of the most important protected areas for migratory birds in Bavaria. A visit to the bird island with its lookout tower is definitely worth it. But the bike has to be parked, as you can only explore the island on foot. You reach the island via a wooden pier.

    Flooded in 1985, today the Altmühlsee is a prime recreational area for Middle Franconian hotheads, sailors, fishermen, families and kitesurfers.

    Driving around the lake is pure relaxation! The minigolf system, which offers more than the usual concrete slabs, has fallen with.

    Great lake, which allows some types of water sports and Scenic is very varied so that those who are on shank and those with the bike on the road are plenty of variety.

    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.

    Very nice bike path around the Altmühlsee. Can also be combined with a round around the Brombachsee.

    The weekly round of the lake never gets boring. And that for 27 years. The new way has just made it faster and fuller. But at 8:00 in the morning, it's even on vacation

    On the north side you can do miniature golf, a few opportunities to stop, and a round trip (only on foot), to the islands in the lake. The bike path is very busy at the weekend!
