On the western outskirts of Leipzig lies one of the most popular bathing lakes in the region and one of the most important diving waters in Europe.
|1963-1973||Flooding of the lake|
The "Kulki" as it is affectionately known in the colloquial language, was already flooded from 60 brown coal mines at the end of the 2 years and is thus one of the first open-pit mines of the Leipzig Neuseenland.
With 150 ha water surface, it is one of the smaller lakes, but apart from the excellent water quality, the lush greenery and the best connection to the center of Leipzig, it is characterized by tram, S-Bahn and bus.
The leisure facilities at Kulkwitzer See are diverse.
Three diving dives into the lake, some with underwater platforms and sunken diving objects, attract tens of thousands of divers from all over the world.
A water ski lift is the popular meeting place for all the wakeboarders of Leipzig and the region. Floating lido, boat rental and the new "Ministry of Adventure" round off the maritime leisure activities on Lake Kulkwitz.
