Lake Berzdorf

Lake Experience

Pure Nature near the City with Outdoor Activities

Just a few minutes away from the city’s splendid old town, a nature paradise is waiting for you: 960 hectares of glittering water, sandy beaches and the deep green of the 420 m-high Landeskrone, the city’s local mountain. This is where tourists and locals can get away and relax.

A variety of sports can be tried out on and around the lake. For water sports enthusiasts, like surfers, sailors and stand-up paddlers, Berzdorf Lake is ideal to live their passion.

If you just want to go for a swim, several swimming sites invite you to get into the crystal-clear and refreshing water.


Swimming Season 2024

The bathing season begins in May and ends in October. Swimming is allowed on the north beach and north-east beach, on the peninsula and at the Blue Lagoon. Don't forget your swimsuit, as naturism is not allowed. The dog beach is south of Deutsch Ossig. Snorkelling up to 3.50 metres water depth is possible in the lake; professional diving in the lake is not permitted.

Bathing supervision is organised during the bathing season. The German Red Cross (DRK) is on duty in the rescue station on the north beach and in the rescue container on the north-east beach to secure the bathing areas. The beach of the Blue Lagoon is supervised by the German Life Saving Association (DLRG).

Cycling, hiking & more at the lake

Here at the Germany-Poland-Czech Republic border triangle, families and people looking for various kinds of leisure activities will all find something according to their taste. At the banks and near the lake, cyclists, skaters and walkers can enjoy lovely nature and beautiful views during any season of the year.

Enjoy some beach volleyball at two courts north of the peninsula and at the Blaue Lagune. The playgrounds on the northeast beach and at the Blaue Lagune provide fun for young visitors to the lake. And for all pony fans, the Ranch am See is the place for you.

Rowing boats, paddle boats, rubber dinghies and canoes can set off or land directly at swimming locations. For windsurfing, access is at the southern end of the swimming area at the northeast beach. Kitesurfing is not permitted.
