Active holidays at the Edersee: beach life, water sports and an adrenaline rush

Facing wind and waves.


Time for a day at the beach, because the Edersee is definitely a bathing lake! How about a game of beach volleyball before you hit the stand up paddle board? Learning to sail, windsurf and water ski is a bit more difficult, but there are courses for that and you can rent sports equipment. Canoeing or kayaking is possible on either the lake or the river.  

Getting around on a Segway is a cool way to see the area. There are also hidden treasures. With a bit of luck you will find one panning for gold on the Eder, the other on one of the six geocaching tours.

You should have a head for heights for the climbing forest, because the course runs from tree to tree at a height of three to eleven meters. At the end of the day you climb the forest to the roof on the "TreeTopWalk". You can experience the greatest outdoor fun on the summer toboggan run: adventure golf, outdoor laser tag and quad biking - adventure heart, what more could you want?

Stand Up Paddling - that made me curious.

"My friends know that I like to try new things and gave me a voucher for a day of Stand Up Paddling for my birthday. We all went to the Edersee and had a lot of fun. The sailing school gave us a brief introduction, the board and a life jacket , then it was off to the water.

I was a bit excited, but it can't be that difficult, everyone is doing it right now. And that's exactly how it is - after a few attempts, the first successes came. I was able to glide surprisingly quickly over the water, still slightly shaky, but standing. My friends laughed and said "putting to sea" took on a new meaning today."
