Parking & attendance 16 parking spaces (parking meter, Mo-Fr 07:00-19:00, Sa 07:00-17:00).

Entrance / Exit From the parking lot, straight down the road towards the lake. Enter from the landing stage or the boat ramp. A "forest" of Christmas trees at 4-5 m indicate that you can head for the shore.

Description The water is very shallow near the coast and the bottom not very interesting. Therefore, you should first swim on the surface, in the continuity of the boat ramp, to the second moored boat (the white boat after the smaller blue one on this map) resp. the second mooring line, and start your descent there. At around 9 m and to the left you can find a small motorboat. Straight towards the center of the lake, the wall starts at around 24 m (to ca. 35 m). From there you can either go to left, where after a while the first wall ends and is followed by a second one. At 39 m lies the wreck of a rowboat. A "forest" of Christmas trees at 4-5 m (or the first wreck at 9 m) indicates that you can head for the shore. Note that if you decide to start your dive by going to the right, pay very close attention to the boat traffic, especially in summer.

Particular dangers Do not dive into the harbour!

Toilets In the big house on the left next to the parking lot (when looking towards the lake).

Emergency phone number 144 (and tell them that it is a diving accident and that the Rega should be informed)
