Top Touring Cycling Routes to Kinzigsee-Ruhlsee
  • There is a path between the two lakes so that you can circle each lake individually, if you want. While you can observe many waterfowl at the Ruhlsee in the bird sanctuary, the Kinzigsee offers itself for swimming in the summer. On hot days you can take a break at the beach, sunbathe on the sandy beach and hop into the cool water of the lake.The lido is open from the end of May until the end of August, from 9am to 9pm daily. Admission costs 4 euros for adults and 2.30 euros for young people. Children up to 5 years are free of charge.

  • The Ruhlsee was renatured in 2009 under the direction of the Hessian Society for Ornithology and Nature Conservation (HGON) and is a bird paradise. The south bank was closed to visitors as a retreat and observation huts were built.

  • Attention: The path between the two lakes was almost impassable today (6/2/23). There were deep tractor tracks in many places, probably due to the fact that it had been very damp here for weeks beforehand. It is possible that these tractor gullies were created when the farmer mowed the field, because everything was covered with hay, so potholes and gullies were often only noticed when it was already too late to avoid them.
