Location for open water dives:
It is about one hour’s drive from Böblingen near Karlsruhe (see directions).
There are parking spaces at the lake (3€ fee). Between the lake and the parking lot there is a sandy beach which invites you to lie down and relax. Dogs are only allowed in the parking lot. Barbecuing at the lake is not allowed.
In summer a kiosk and the toilets are open. As the lake is located in the nature reserve, diving is only allowed in a certain Arial and only from 01 April to 01 October.
The maximum depth is about 16m. The bottom of the lake is sandy to muddy. In the shore area you will find trees with branches, please take care not to get stuck with equipment. Please pay attention to the buoyancy. Otherwise you will not be able to see the perch, rudd, pike and carp. Also the seaweeds are destroyed by the swirled up sediment. Some years ago sand / gravel was extracted from the lake for the building industry. Therefore the bottom is covered with large holes. Which makes navigating a bit more attractive. Since the lake is also used by swimmers, it is important to ensure that the bathers are not disturbed or hindered when descending and ascending.
