The Heider Bergsse belongs to the Ville lakes: It was created at the end of the lignite mining in the mid-30s. The remaining holes in the opencast mines slowly filled with water as the groundwater rose again. The campsite Heider Bergsee is located directly on the lake and offers a beach (swimming pool), pitches and a restaurant.

The Heider Bergsee is a remainder lake of brown coal mining and lies west of Cologne near the city of Brühl. The mining of brown coal ended here in 1964 and a year later the Heider Bergsee was created. Today you can walk around the lake very well and swim in the summer in the outdoor pool. Furthermore, there is the possibility to sail, but only if you are a member of a sailing club.

The Heider Bergsee was created artificially through the renaturation of a residual open-pit lignite mine in the Rhenish lignite mining area. Long before it became a legal obligation, the Hürth mine director Adolf Dasbach pioneered the dismantling of the pit that had been charred here. The Heider Bergsee has an area of about 35 hectares, is relatively winding and is one of the larger still waters in the Villeseenlandschaft. Source: Wikipedia
