Lakes in the region around Günzburg + water sports

Protected lake and natural landscape as a paradise of local recreation

The Swabian Danube valley and its tributary valleys form a carpet of waters that attracts people from near and far in the summer. The swimming lakes’ water quality is constantly tested during the season and therefore the lakes are regarded as areas of local recreation. Large parts are marked as a nature and landscape reserve so that swimming and bathing as well as water sports and fishing are subject to certain rules and regulations.

Below you can find an overview of the most popular and biggest lakes in the surroundings.

Many can be reached via quiet cycle paths and invite you to idyllic hikes and walks in addition to swimming.

Water sports at the Lakes Günzburg

Rowing boats are allowed on most lakes and rivers around Günzburg. Surfing, sailing, wakeboarding and standup paddling is also allowed at some spots. Corresponding water sports schools offer rentals and courses for the individual water sports. Fun and action can be experienced at the wakeboard and water ski park at Lake Thannhaus which is also equipped with over 20 obstacles. For professional diving just head over to the diving school BlueWaterDiving, which offers courses from introductory diving to advanced courses.

In the summer it is a pure joy to relax at the clear lakes, to bathe with the children and to swim. An excursion to the lakes can be well combined with a hike or a bike tour. In addition to the LEGOLAND® Deutschland Resort Günzburg and the outlet centre, families have a further reason to plan their stay at the Best Hotel Mindeltal and stay a little while longer to enjoy a day of recreation at one of the lakes.
