Lake Schladitz is located to the north of Leipzig. Whether with family, friends or alone - Schladitz Bay, with its wonderful sandy beach, deep blue water and Mediterranean flair invites you to bathe, swim, laze around and relax. Cycling enthusiasts and inline skaters feel at home here too. There are several paved and signposted trails which amount to a total length of approx. 11 km. Visitors can stay overnight in tents or small bungalows, directly on Schladitz Bay.

In the water sports school located there, Camp David Sports Resort by ALL on SEA, beginners and advanced students master the art of sailing, surfing or free-diving, among other activities. At a depth of up to 25 metres, a new world is opened up to divers. The deep blue offers a car wreck, forests and old wagons from the times of lignite production. For diving novices, there are flat spots from which carp and pikes can be observed. With the water quality and visibility ranges of up to eight metres, more need not be said.

In the near future, a project, which is the only of its kind in Germany at present, is set to be carried out on Hayna beach – bathing like in the Biedermeier era. This will allow visitors and bathers to travel back in time and experience cultural history, thanks to a historical beach design and a nostalgic aura.

Offers: all kinds of water sports, Biedermeier beach, tent houses, Sports Fun Park, Schladitz Bay, "Kohle I Dampf I Licht" cycle route, gastronomy
