The Landscape round Lake Bömighausen

The lake is at the beginning of the village, and therefore it is called Lake Bömighausen.

In summer there is very much public utility, and the people living in the villages nearby go there by bike or motor bike. From Eppe it takes 6 to 7 km to arrive at the lake, There is an island with a duck house. In the background there is a forest and the lake is surrounded by grassland with some benches where you can take a sun bath.

Then two step-like terraces follow. They carry caravans, holiday houses and a kiosk.

Fish swim in and ducks on the water. By the bank there is a small pier, and from there you can jump into the water which is not clear because in it there are algas and rotted plants which produce mud. The water is well temperated.

On the lake you can go by rubber boat or rowing boat or you lay down on a rubber matress to glide on the water. The lake is not so suitable for sailing boats. Near the lake people can walk to the forest. In winter the lake is frozen and so you can go ice skating. The landscape round Lake Bömighausen has got a merry character.
