    The Birkensee is not developed for tourism, but very popular with many Nuremberg residents. The quarry lake is located about 20 kilometers east of Nuremberg, between Schwaig and Diepersdorf (municipality of Leinburg).

    The local recreation lake Birkensee is fed by the groundwater of the Röthenbach, which flows into the Pegnitz in the city of Röthenbach. At the A9 / A3 motorway junction in Nuremberg, the Birkensee near Nuremberg lies in the Reichswald between Schwaig and Diepersdorf.

    In the 1980s, the Birkensee was brought up to today's double size for sand construction and since then a depth of up to 11 meters.

    The Landratsamt Nürnberger Land has lifted the bathing ban for Birkensee, but advises against swimming and diving.

    The concentrations of these chemicals are so low that effects on human health are not expected, according to the district office in Lauf. However, a danger cannot be ruled out with absolute certainty.

    Nice, especially when the weather is not so pleasant. One is then largely alone and the lake has really beautiful banks.

    From this position you have a wonderful view over the Birkensee. Perfect for a couple of snapshots. Above all, the water colors can be captured very well. The lake is worth a visit in every season.

    A lake in the middle of nature with excellent clear water. Lots of space for sunbathing.

    Birken Lake is - as the name suggests - a small, homely lake where you can rest - or more - to stop.
