Lake Werratal

Short facts

  • Eschwege

Lake Werratal - the leisure experience at the gates of the old town of Eschwege.

Hesse's third largest lake, with a surface area of 110 hectares, fulfills the wishes of many people looking for relaxation and water sports: swimming areas with sandy beaches and playgrounds, sailing, surfing, rowing, canoeing.

The paved circular route is a delight for cyclists and inline skaters. An electric excursion boat, the "Werranixe", operates on the lake with moorings near the campsite and marina in Eschwege and barrier-free on the east bank in Meinhard-Schwebda.
