Bike Touring Highlight
The Erlachsee is a gravel for the construction of the southern Tangent in 1969 and 1970 artificially landscaped lake in the Durlacher part of the Oberwald. He is now accessible only via observation platforms. In contrast to most of the dredging lakes, the 12-meter-deep Erlachsee has shallow water zones, sand banks and steep walls that provide a habitat for many species of birds. In 1983 he was placed under conservation. The path around Lake Erlach was named in July 2018 in Hans-Gutjahr-Weg. As a forestry official of the city of Karlsruhe, Hans Gutjahr was also responsible for the Oberwald.

Erlachsee is a former quarry lake in the Oberwald in Karlsruhe, which is under nature protection. The path around the lake pays tribute to a forest official who, in the best sense of Hans Carl von Carlowitz (1713), had managed the forest sustainably: Hans Gutjahr.
The lake is now protected from people by a fence. Here you have a look at the lake. Only the nearby motorway sometimes interferes with the natural experience.
