    The Windebyer Noor is a 389 hectare inland lake in Schleswig-Holstein. It is located on the western edge of the city of Eckernförde, to whose municipal area it belongs. The eponymous municipality of Windeby borders the shore of the lake in the south and west.The old town of Eckernförde now stands on the beach wall that has been washed up over thousands of years. The term Noor indicates the original state.Around three quarters of the Windebyer Noores are surrounded by a hiking trail, which partly runs on the old railway line of the Eckernförde Kreisbahnen from Eckernförde to Owschlag - the complete circuit is possible via Eckernförde streets. Since the hiking trail was not consistently led around the banks of the entire Noores and around a quarter was left out, the broken forests and reed belts have been preserved in partially undisturbed locations.You can also cycle well on the northern part of the hiking trail - it is better to choose a MTB for the southern part.The Windebyer Noor has been leased to the third generation of the family since 1957 by a professional fishing family business that has been cultivating the Noor with eel, perch, bream, carp, roach and pikeperch and, since 1990, increasingly with vendace. The company also rents out fishing boats. From the time until 1929, when the connection with the Baltic Sea still existed, herring stocks were able to hold, but they have been decreasing recently. At around 15 cm, these pegs are smaller than those in the open sea.More detailed

    A very nice route in the middle of a great lake landscape.

    From the bike and footpath along the Windebyer Noor you often have a great view over the water. Exciting are the views in the most diverse lighting conditions!

    With or after rain it could get a bit muddy here.

    It's very nice to ride your bike along the Eckernförde Bay.

    A little rough but quite mobile.
