    The huge remaining open-cast mines left after the lignite had been mined led to considerations for further use in the GDR era, although initially only a large water reservoir was considered.
    After reunification, since 1991 the plans have been aimed at renovation with the aim of creating a national recreational area under the name Geiseltaler Seenkomplex. Opencast mining ceased on June 30, 1993 after a total of 1.4 billion tons of lignite was mined and the same amount of overburden was moved. Mining resulted in a nearly 80 m deep open-pit hole of around 2,600 hectares.

    The water has a great color. The lake and the surroundings remind me of Italy.

    Great summer goal. The Geiseltalsee is also perfect for swimming. Very noble place.

    Very romantic and idyllic, but you shouldn't underestimate the cold that can go from the lake.

    The Geiseltalsee, a former lignite mine.
    Very nice clear water. Meanwhile beach area, but there are many other hidden smaller spots.

    Was a very nice circumnavigation of the lake by bike and dog. Good food for the women with small snacks on the bike tour. Gladly again. You can swim and relax nicely.
