Quench your #Ederseensucht

with real life stories!

This is how our guests experience the Edersee: The first time Edersee was a day trip with the parents fifty years ago... later we went to the youth hostel with the school class...then as teenagers we went camping with friends... or with our partner in a romantic hotel . There are some who got married in the registry office on the dam wall...then the first family holiday with your own children...when the children are out of the house you treat yourself to a wellness weekend, sometimes it has to be a cure...and finally you do it Vacation with the grandchildren... The Edersee is flat a lake for life.

By the way, we didn't make that up. These are life stories that our guests have told us.
