Enjoy a casual stroll along the 2-kilometre-long promenade with its boat and holiday homes, sailing schools and boat rental opportunities. Not far from there, there is also the small sandy Kahnsdorf beach, with a volleyball pitch and its own jetty.

On the northern shore, by the newly established camp site and mobile home area, water lovers can also be seen jumping into the cool abyss.
