    Surrounded by three highways and a railroad track, it is difficult to believe that such an idyll can be found. The background noise, especially the A46 can not be ignored, but is compensated by the views of the lake with its protected bird island.

    The tour around the lake is easy to walk and also passable by bike. Unfortunately, the view of the lake is rarely possible. Mostly they are concreted or forest roads lined with trees. Partly parallel to the highway. Nice tour, but not very close to nature.

    I found a tour on Elbsee pretty boring ...
    Broad, flat paths lead roughly along the lake, which hides too often behind thick shrubbery. And peace can hardly be found because of the highways.
    The only highlight was perhaps the railway model making facility, which also offers guest trips.
    One of the few bad comoot tours we have done so far!

    The Elbsee is an excavated gravel lake in Düsseldorf-Unterbach on the city limits of Hilden.
    After the gravel works had been completed in 2006 and some of the dams had been removed by the gravel works, the present sea area is approximately 89 ha with a maximum depth of 22 m. The lake has no above-ground inflows or outflows and is fed by groundwater. Large parts of the lake are officially inaccessible and thus enable a species-rich flora and fauna. [1] The view of the lake is only allowed from a few places on the surrounding hiking trails.
    The southwestern part of the lake and the adjacent forest form the Dreiecksweiher nature reserve. In the north, the Elbsee is separated from the local recreation area Unterbacher See by the A 46.
    On August 14, 2010, the northern part of the Elbe Lake was also placed under nature protection due to its great importance for the biotope function. The nutrient-poor water body is of particular ecological importance. In the lime-rich, nutrient-poor still waters you can find, among other things, arm candle algae, dark shiny candle algae and shiny spawn. The north shore with the shallow water zone and reed reed beds as well as the central island are primarily of ornithological importance. There are other rare animal and plant species, such as the sand martin, the ringed plover, lapwing, dune tiger beetle, swallowtail and common hornbill. In winter, the Elbsee is a nationally important habitat for migrating, resting and hibernating bird species. Over 70 bird species, including rare and endangered species, have been observed.

    The two benches are located on a hill with unobstructed views of the lake and invite you to linger in the sun.

    The Elbsee is formed by Auskiesung Baggersee in Dusseldorf-Unterbach at the city limits to Hilden.
    Story:
    After completion of the drainage work in 2006 and the removal of some dams through the gravel, the current lake area is about 89 ha with a maximum depth of 22 m. The lake has no above-ground inflows or outflows and is fed by groundwater. Large parts of the lakeshore are officially not accessible and thus allow a variety of flora and fauna. The view of the lake is only allowed by a few places of the surrounding hiking trails.
    The southwestern part of the lake and the adjacent forest form the nature reserve Dreiecksweiher. In the north of the Elbsee is separated by the A 46 from the recreational area Unterbacher See.
    On August 14, 2010, the northern part of the Elbe was also protected because of its importance for the biotope. Of particular ecological importance is the nutrient-poor water body. In the lime-rich, nutrient-poor still waters you will find, among other things, candlestick algae, dark luminescent algae and shiny pondweed. The north shore with shallow water zone and Schrefröhricht as well as the central island possess ornithologische meaning in the first place. There are other rare species of animals and plants, such as Bank Swallow, Little Ringed Plover, Lapwing, Dune Sandhill Beetle, Swallowtail and True Centaury. In winter, the Elbe is a nationwide significant habitat for migrating, resting and overwintering bird species. More than 70 species of birds, including rare and endangered species have been observed.
    Use:
    On the south bank stands since 1998 a 7.5 m high observation tower, which is used for nature observation.
    On the eastern shore of the lake there is a new since 2003 water sports center, the clubs of diving, canoeing, surfing and sailing and the DLRG resident.
    Immediately north joins a commercial wellness center. The site was sold in 2013 by the municipal real estate subsidiary IDR to a Cologne entrepreneur.
    2015 saw the groundbreaking ceremony. It was opened on February 20, 2017.

    From the east bank you have a wonderful view of the entire Unterbacher See. Just let your gaze wander into the distance ...
