Cooling down guaranteed! The Top 6 bathing lakes in Freiburg and surroundings

The bathing lakes in and around Freiburg are worth visiting even outside the high summer period. Today, we are presenting the six most beautiful lakes.

                             

#1 Lake Opfinger See

The “big” and the “small” Opfinger quarry ponds are located in the district of Mooswald, on the right and left of the road to Freiburg. The little Lake Opfinger See is somewhat more tranquil than its larger sibling: large sunbathing lawns, several small lakeside spots along the circular path, barbecue areas, a beach volleyball field, slackline facilities, and a kiosk invite you to linger. Although parking spaces are available, we recommend traveling by bicycle or bus (line 32 or 33, Opfingen-Kleingärten bus stop).

#2 Lake Flückigersee

The Seepark (Lake Park), with the 10-hectare Lake Flückigersee, is situated in the heart of Freiburg. There are expansive grassy areas for sunbathing, including a separate area for naturists. Its many attractions, such as pedal boats, a mini-golf course, a sunken pirate ship, restaurant, and kiosk, make the lake the perfect destination for a family outing. The best way to reach Lake Flückigersee is by tram line 1 in the direction of Landwasser (Betzenhauser Torplatz or Bischofskreuz stop).

#3 Lake Tunisee

Lake Tunisee (with a camping site) is located near the Freiburg-Nord motorway exit. It is an officially approved bathing lake. The entrance fee for adults is €2.30, and €1.20 for children aged 6 to 13. It offers a wide range of facilities, including water-skiing, a climbing iceberg, a kiosk, and expansive sunbathing lawns. Lake Tunisee is best reached by car: simply follow the “Badeseen” signs from Seestrasse.

#4 Lake Silbersee

Lake Silbersee in Freiburg, with its restaurant and adjoining camping site, is located next to Lake Tunisee. It is particularly popular with families. There is a separate area available for naturists. A charge applies for use of the lake and parking; the entrance fee for adults and children of school age or older is €3. Lake Silbersee is best reached by car: simply follow the “Badeseen” signs from Seestrasse.

#5 Moosweiher

The tranquil Moosweiher lake is situated in Freiburg’s Lehen district. Although it is somewhat quieter here, there are still numerous leisure activities. From a playground to a giant half-pipe, soccer or beach volleyball, and a mini-golf course – there’s something for everyone. For a quick snack to keep you going, there is the “Persio am See” pizzeria. We recommend taking tram line 1 (last stop Moosweiher).

#6 Lake Dietenbachsee

Lake Dietenbachsee is located in Freiburg’s Weingarten district, not far from the city center. This pretty little lake is surrounded by extensive parkland, allowing you, in addition to swimming, to enjoy some great walks or go in-line skating or cycling on asphalt paths around the lake. We recommend taking tram line 3 (Bugginger Straße stop).
