Lake Freilingen, embedded in the beautiful landscape of the Eifel, offers relaxation, cooling and fun in the midst of the local nature - and all this with the highest water quality.
Activities on Lake Freilingen Visitors to Lake Freilingen can find everything their heart desires in their free time and can pursue a wide variety of activities on and in the water: windsurfing, diving, rowing, paddling, swimming (at your own risk), fishing for perch, pike or roach (fishing permits are available at the reception) and hiking are all possible.
Around the lake there are spacious sunbathing lawns where locals and tourists can relax with a sunbath or picnic. A Nordic Walking trail signposted with information boards offers a pleasant walking route for fans of this sport.
