Bike Touring Highlight
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.

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.
