    The Kulkwitzer lake in the west of Leipzig is suitable for various recreational activities and purchase point.

    It is optimally accessible from several directions. From the west, directly from Markranstädt, from the east to Lausen-Grünau and Miltitz and from the south from Plagwitz-Pörsten-Radweg. The connection by public transport is optimally realized with road and bus (on Leipziger side lines 1, 61, 161, 62, 65 and 66. On Markranstädter side line 65).

    In the summer, the Kulkwitzer See is a sought-after beach destination, on the Miltitzer side is a water-ski facility.

    Otherwise, the Kulki, as it is also called, is suitable for hiking and cycling all year round. A round around the lake is about 10 km. If it is possible in summer with the trekking bike easily, you should take the mountain bike in winter, because on the Markranstädter side, the forest trails are muddy.

    Supermarkets are not far away in Miltitz and Lausen, as well as Markrans
