Nice lake to relax.
Lake Annasee is a natural lake near Beilstein in the district of Heilbronn in northern Baden-Württemberg. As an areal natural monument it is under nature protection.
The 1.0 ha large lake is about three kilometers northeast of Beilstein to 376.1 m above sea level. NN in Beilsteiner Stadtwald, near the hamlet Gagernberg. The lake is fed in particular by the higher forest cape Tautzenbühl (summit at 418.9 m above sea level) and naturally dammed by the water-impermeable Lettenboden. It drains over the approximately 1.0 km long Annabach through the slope forest to Söhlbach, in which this at 284 m above sea level. NN opposite Helfenberg.
The lake as well as the surrounding city forest have always belonged to the municipality of Beilstein. The lake was also called Tannensee in the 19th century. In 1846 its size was called just under six and a half acres. In 1901, the brewery Cluss took ice from the lake. Between 1923 and 1931 the lake was leased to the nearby hamlet Gagernberg. In 1931, the lake almost ran out due to the breakthrough of a discharge device for firefighting water extraction to Beilstein and was then deslimed several times. Since 1951 the lake has been a protected part of the landscape. The fish water of the lake is leased to the fishing club Heilbronn-Sontheim.
