Satisfy your #Ederseenaddiction with real-life stories!

Jungle in the national park, action, water sports and wellness – everything you want.

In the mood for ...

Vacation in the middle of Germany: A hiking vacation in the forests of the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park or a wellness weekend in Bad Wildungen bring pure relaxation! Whether it's cycle paths for families, swimming in the lake or the wildlife park - holidays with children are an experience here. Cruise from the dam to other banks by boat and action is guaranteed thanks to the activities on the water.

Unforgettable summer holidays, that was pure freedom!

“When I was a month old, my parents took me to Herzhausen for the first time, that was in the 60s. As a child, I jumped from the tent straight into the lake. Whether it's a weekend, summer holidays or New Year's Eve, we've been camping here with the family - my brother, his children and their friends - for over 30 years. Swimming in the lake early in the morning, hiking, going out on the water in a boat and visiting the fantastic wildlife park every time – that makes me happy. It never gets boring: Bad Wildungen, Fritzlar and Korbach are beautiful destinations for shopping and going out. By the way, I also met my husband at the campsite. He met here every year with his motorcycle clique.”

"Yes, it is 'My lake for life'. We even had T-shirts printed with the motto: Better than any therapy - Edersee."

from Susanne from Giessen
