    Formerly here was a huge industrial area, the steelworks Pheonix East. It was recultivated, a lake, a residential and a recreational area were created. Today you can relax here and by the way you will be reminded of the past of this place and the Ruhr area itself.

    The lake offers even water sports enthusiasts many opportunities.
    The range of usable watercraft ranges according to current maritime law of electric powered model boats or model sailboats to "real" sails, oars or paddle boats.

    The Phoenix Lake is with the surrounding area a residential and recreational area with restaurants and commercial buildings. Responsible for planning and construction are the Phoenix-See-Entwicklungsgesellschaft, which is a subsidiary of Dortmunder Stadtwerke, the Emschergenossenschaft and the city of Dortmund. The location is the 96-hectare site of the former Hermannshütte in Dortmund-Hörde (Hörder Bergwerks- und Hütten-Verein).

    The pond has a length of 1230 meters, a maximum width of 310 meters and a maximum depth of about 4.6 meters. The area is about 24 hectares and the capacity about 600,000 m³. The lake is also a building block in the renaturation of the Emscher. Its design as a rainwater retention basin protects the downstream residential and commercial buildings on the banks of the Emscher from flooding. At the monastic building in the harbor basin, it can be held back and controlled to be reintroduced into the Emscher. [3] If necessary, the lake can additionally absorb up to 360,000 m³ of rainwater. [4]. Together with the around two kilometers west and 110 hectares Phoenix-West Technology Park and the northern 60 hectares of fallow land (Phoenix Park), the lake changes Hördes' formerly heavy industry image.

    On its banks, after a 150-year industrial use history [5] a predominantly home-based residential development with about 1200 units on approximately 26 hectares was realized. Gastronomy and leisure facilities are to create 5000 jobs on a 3.2 kilometer long waterfront.

    The Phoenix Lake the good address in Dortmund. Where once steel was cooked in Hoesch's steel mill, whoever has money now lives. After the old plant was dismantled screw by screw and shipped to China, lay the city of Dortmund and the Emschergenossenschaft the sea. Swim no, sail yes, pedal boat yes. An artificial lake fed by the renamed Emscher. In flood situations, the lake also serves as a flood retention basin. It remains to be seen what happens after 2025 at the then clean Emscher. On 24.09.2018, part of the Emscher sewage canal goes into operation. Prerequisite for the wastewater freedom of the Emscher and the development back to the blue Emscher. The Emscher cooperative also builds wine on the lake. Not much, every year is auctioned for a good cause. Further information, eglv.de

    If you are in the vicinity, you should register for the Skywalk at the steelworks! Great tour with lots of historical information and great views! Then directly to the inn of the Bergmann brewery below the Skywalks!
