In the middle of the Eifel National Park, surrounded by unique natural scenery and unspoilt nature: the conditions for a perfect holiday experience can hardly be bettered than those on lake Rursee.
Cycling around the lake over 27 kilometres through the unique landscape, and with the lapping water always at your side. The tour can be extended to 42 kilometres, if one includes the lakes of Obersee and Urftsee. Naturally the trip would be much easier on a Pedelec. These can be hired by the lake. Small tip: best to call ahead and reserve one.
It goes without saying that the lakes can also be explored in a wonderful way on a walk along the shore.
A classic hike takes visitors across along the river Ufer. If you would like something more challenging, you could try the hike along the wooded heights where the water comes appears here and there between the trees and you can enjoy impressive views over the lakes.
And if you want to cut your walk short, you can simply hop onto one of the Rursee boats to the next station on the lake and put your feet up in one of the restaurants and cafés.
The lake resorts of Rurberg, Woffelsbach and Einruhr offer numerous possibilities for a relaxing break!
With so much water around, you can of course go for a dip, too. The Rurberg Rursee Centre attracts lots of people, especially on hot summer days. There you can relax on the large grass area or go for a refreshing swim in the lakeside resort. Families are particularly at home in Einruhr‘s nature adventure pool with its numerous attractions for children. And if you want to explore lake Rursee from the water, try your hand at stand-up paddling or simply hire a canoe.
It does not stop there: There is so much to discover at lake Rursee, especially for young people. Away from the big cities and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you are surrounded by nature, fresh air, water, woods, adventure and relaxation, perfect for a trip with friends, youth groups and school classes. You can also sleep like a top in the new NabeDi youth village in the Bay of Woffelsbach. Its wide range of activities makes for a great and memorable stay by the lake.
