Lake Störmthal

In the heart of Leipzig Neuseenland

Lake Störmthal, Boat trip, Bathing lakes Leipzig

Lake Störmthal resulted from the former opencast mine in Espenhain. Through a lake-connecting canal bed, as well as common cycling and hiking trails, it forms a single tourist entity with neighbouring Lake Markkleeberg.

Even from afar, the Mining and Technology Park is a visible attraction. As a place where living history is conveyed and where the technological work processes of an opencast mine are commemorated, the park is of great interest to its visitors. The art object "VINETA" -  a floating artistic interpretation of the former church of Magdeborn - commemorates Germany's lost lignite settlements, and since being moored in the centre of the lake, has been used for weddings and events. It can be viewed from Germany's unique amphibious vehicle.

Those who enjoy archery have the opportunity to visit the only 3D archery course in the Leipzig New Lake District. The holiday resort, LAGOVIDA, directly on the water guarantees a relaxed holiday day. The 3-day-long Indie Rock Festival, "Highfield", attended by up to 35,000 visitors takes place every year in August.
