Herzogsee Walchum Reviews
Herzogsee Jul 26, 2009
Herzogsee (Duke's lake) is a small lake near the village of Walchum, Emsland, Germany.
On the eastern side of the Herzogsee big equipment is set up to dredge up sand, and signs indicate that part of the lake was dangerous and thus forbidden to enter, but on the northwestern side a marked off safe swimming place is created.
The crystal clear water really invites you to go for that swim!
It was so clear, that when I walked into the water as far as I could with rolled up trouserlegs - I still could see my toenails :)
There is a sandy beach surrouding the swimming area, where a volleyball net is set up to play beach volleyball, and also at the lake is a surfschool.
On the grass near the beach is a building with sanitary facilities, as well as a kiosk where you can buy drinks and snacks.
