The Riesersee (Lake Riesser) used to be the setting of ice sports and famous international winter sports competitions. Of course, when the weather is fine in the summer, nothing reminds one of this icy pleasure: The small public swimming area, boat hire and café located at the shores of the lake as well as the impressive panoramic view all make you immediately feel as if you were on a holiday.
