Bütgenbacher See 

HINTS  Tourist info

Active holidays made-to-measure!

Lake Bürgenbacher See lies in a countryside of meadows, wood and gentle hills and does not only attract aquatic athletes. Those who like it rather relaxed can watch others sailing, windsurfing and paddling on the water from the family-friendly lido or can earn their supper by angling. Sensualist hikers explore the pleasing landscape on a bicycle or afoot. If you love the adventure it is worthwhile to go mountain biking, to experience the high wire garden or the climbing wall.

In other words: there is a comprehensive range of outdoor activities waiting for adventurous vacationists. The focus of activities is located at the sports- and recreation centre in Worriken. Have an overnight stay here in one of the 48 chalets and look forward to the next day at the lake! A specialty of the centre are the comprehensive,  individually arranged group activities.
