Liepnitzsee has a surface area of 1.15 km2 and a maximum depth of 17.5 m. In summer, water clarity is extremely high with average values of 4.5 m. It is unique in that it plays host to a large island called Großer Werder. The island has a surface area of 0.34 km2. To get to Großer Werder, simply hop on the little ferry that goes by the name of Frieda. Remember to bring your own towel and be sure to grab some refreshments at the beer garden on the island. A short walk through the woods will lead you to a small, sandy beach where you can spend the day swimming and sunbathing.
Walking along the lake’s northern shore, you’ll discover a couple of spots, smaller and more secluded than Liepnitzsee’s busier beaches. The soothing sounds of the forest make for the perfect backdrop as the wind sweeps through the tall trees’ branches.
