Fascinating water

Water has firmly captured our hearts. No one can resist its attractive pull. Humans and animals have been living close to water as it means life, fertility, food and…beautiful cycling routes. Germany is fortunate that it is bordered not only by two seas, but also has many beautiful lakes. You would hardly believe how many lakes there are in Germany - you will find it hard to decide which to visit, the selection is so large. We hope you enjoy browsing.

The climate on the German lakes

In order to sum up the individual climatic zones and weather forecasts of the German lakes, one would need delve deep…very deep. Therefore, forgive us for making it easy for ourselves. In general, it can be said that in the German climate everything is possible. Therefore, get a reliable weather forecast and be prepared for bad weather, then nothing stands in the way of a wonderful cycle tour.

Food of the German Lakes

Of course it’s not possible to write a general description of the food of the German lakes. Often Bavarian food is different even in the next village. But we can tell you about the different delicacies you should try at different lakes. Maybe you’ll find a tip or two?

  • Munich Lakes: Surprise! Of course you didn’t expect this - Munich white sausage! But you can also expect roast pork with potato dumplings, ‘Schweinshax’n’ (pork leg) or ‘Damfnudeln’ (steamed dumpling) with vanilla sauce - you should try it all in Munich.
  • Bavarian Lakes: Of course, the Bavarian cuisine is almost identical to that in Munich. Obazda (cheese spread), ‘Fleischpflanzerl’ (meatballs) or a sour ‘Lüngerl’ (stew made from calf lung)? In Bavaria you can eat till you hurt.
  • Chiemsee: Be sure to try the fresh grilled fish from the Chiemsee, or the delicious marzipan from Fraueninsel - a treat.
  • Lake Constance: A St Gallen sausage from Switzerland, ‘Käsknöpfle' (egg pasta with cheese and fried onions) from the Allgäu or sweet apple strudel from Austria? On Lake Constance you can sample delicacies from three countries.
  • Mecklenburg Lake District: Of course fish is important in the Mecklenburg Lake District! Great dishes such as braised zander or pike in parsley sauce will delight fish lovers. But the carnivores also get their money’s worth with dishes such as stuffed pork loin or Mecklenburg rib roast.
  • Berlin Lakes: Berlin is a big melting pot of different cultures and nations. And that’s reflected in the cuisine. To be considered a Berlin speciality, a dish doesn’t necessarily need to have been created there. But if you want to try ‘traditional’ food try a pork chop with sauerkraut, a Holstein style Schnitzel or a famous Currywurst.

Did you know…

  • …that there are more than 15,000 lakes in Germany?
  • …that Lake Constance is the largest, the deepest and most water-rich German lake in terms of area? It belongs only in part to Germany. The largest lake lying totally in Germany is the Müritz, followed by the Chiemsee.
  • …that the Waginger See is one of the warmest bathing lakes in Germany?
  • …that the water at the bottom of the lake is 4 degrees year round?
