Mountain Biking Highlight

  • Thorsten

    Bikers on the Altmühl Panoramaweg can cool off with a dip in the Kratzmühlsee. The bathing lake with about 2 km of shoreline, laid out in the 70s, invites you to sunbathe, swim and row. The recreation area is supplemented by a miniature golf course, the Technikmuseum "anno dazumal", an idyllic lakeside restaurant and the quaint Wirtshaus zur Kratzmühle.
    The ideal place for a short or longer break.

    The Kratzmühlsee near Pfraundorf is a beautiful lake in the middle of the Altmühltal nature park. 700 m long and 250 m wide for swimming, swimming and rowing.

    Sunny berths with shady trees are a good place to unwind and relax. The walk around the lake takes about 30 minutes. A bridge leads to a small island.

    For the children there are two playgrounds around the lake. For fishing enthusiasts separate riparian zones are reported. At the lake there is no designated nudist area, but unclothed visitors to the lake are tolerated.

    At Kratzmühlsee there are many possibilities to strengthen after / during a tour. We had very emblematic fried sausages in the tavern to the Kratzmühle.

    At the Kratzmühlsee not only invites you to bathe, you can also make a trip to the Museum of Technology "anno dazumal".
    The exhibition of old technology from agriculture, craft, household, medicine and traffic will always be alive, ensured by the unwavering idealists of the cultural and historical association Beilngries-Kinding and a rich fund, which is prepared with great skill step by step. The exhibits of the permanent exhibition are still functional, so a mechanical workshop that can be set in motion at the push of a button.
    Opening hours: April - October
    Wednesday and Saturday 14.00 - 18.00 clock

    This bathing lake is a very nice stopover after a strenuous tour, especially in summer. There it is good to take a breather and take a cooling bath in the water.

    Beautiful lake. Highly recommended, even if in the summer a bit crowded.

    It is also very convenient to the camp site on the lake to explore the area from there.
