A holiday at the Edersee:

Action on the water and relaxing on the beach. Swimming, boating, surfing or watching the sailing boats - do whatever you want.

Active on the water

As the second largest reservoir in Germany, the Edersee offers plenty of space for all your water activities. The shore is accessible almost everywhere, if you don't want to go to the lido, look for a romantic bay. Sailors, surfers, rowers and canoeists will find ideal conditions. Surfing and sailing schools offer courses. Stand up paddling is trendy and a lot of fun. You can borrow or rent the right equipment for all water sports from our professionals.

Which leisure captain do you want to be: on an electric boat, in a rubber dinghy or comfortably in a pedal boat? Or do you leave it to the passenger ship to sail you from shore to shore?

The Edersee is one of the most beautiful fishing areas in Germany, but it is not easy to fish for, so there are guides who will take you out on the water. The sunken ruins are particularly interesting for divers. You can canoe not only on the Edersee, but also on the river Eder.

There are places and there are favorite places, the latter being the Edersee for me.

"After studying in Poland, where I was born and grew up in a small, cozy village, I first ended up in Ireland. I thought that this was the most beautiful place on earth until I came to the Edersee for work. Hemfurth became to my new home and the Edersee to my favorite place. This is where I found the love of my life and discovered new hobbies for me. I love water and in the summer I like to paddle a round on the SUP board with my girls, go swimming and walk by the water along or go fishing with my friend Marcel at the weekend. By the way, fishing fascinated me so much that I'm even getting a fishing license now."

"The Edersee is a challenge. But if you are willing to face it, you can always be rewarded with the fish of your life!"

by Jens from Hemfurth
