    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).

    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.

    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.

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