Camping on the lake Kulkwitzer

Excellent water quality and a wide range of activities

The crystal clear water and visibility depths of up to 20 meters make the Kulkwitzer See one of the most popular diving areas in Germany. You can also swim, cycle, hike and go boating at Lake Kulkwitzer See. There is a boat rental with water treaders and rowing boats as well as stand-up paddle and kayak. The water ski lift on the northeastern shore of the lake is particularly popular. In the cold season, those looking for warmth will get their money's worth in the Meri sauna on the western bank. 
Nearby trams and the S-Bahn take you to the city of Leipzig in about 30 minutes. We are also easily accessible via the A9 motorway.
