Tips

    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.

    Thanks to prudent recultivation, a species-rich flora and fauna has settled here over the decades. Long before it became a legal obligation, the Hürther mine director Adolf Dasbach pioneered the decommissioning of his charred pits.

    The lake can best be circumnavigated with the MTB in the early morning hours - during the daytime and especially on weekends it is of course populated by walkers, because it makes it less fun (of course also applies to the walkers).

    A lot is possible here. Whether hiking, jogging, paddling, swimming or just lazing around, almost everyone gets their money's worth here.

    Nice, short route around the lake. Especially beautiful in the sun, but also full.

    Unfortunately, very crowded like large parts of the "Ville". E-bike seniors who are unfit to drive in particular are not considerate and heat up the climate.

    The Heider Bergsee is a great destination. No matter whether for hiking, picnicking, lingering or swimming.

    Anyone looking for peace and quiet, who likes to be out in nature, is definitely in good hands here. However, if it has rained for several days in a row, it is not so recommended 🙃🙂👍

    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

    Depending on your condition and time, the Heider Bergsee can be circumnavigated on a short walk of around six kilometers or combined with other waters in the Villeseen landscape on a longer hike.

    Hello, you shouldn't hike there during Corona times (except for exotic times). Serves as a walking and jogging route for all Brühler ... At the moment, it can only be circled in one direction.

    A nice circular walk goes around the lake with plenty of seating to enjoy the greenery or the view of the lake.
