No matter how often you vacation at Edersee, you will always discover something new. Or even something old, because our excursion tips are peppered with historical buildings - the most spectacular being Waldeck Castle. The absolute highlight is the Edersee dam. A gigantic and impressive structure that is even more fascinating in the dark, as it is immersed in a dreamlike play of colors every evening. The sunken villages that had to give way to the lake are inseparable from the history of the dam. When the water level is low, their remains reappear and become an attraction as the Edersee Atlantis. The events calendar is packed with guided hikes, sightseeing, concerts, festivals and much more.
