Swimming Fun

A refreshing dip in the cool waters of the Harz is a highly suitable pastime for families on hot summer days. In Blankenburg (Harz) and its district Derenburg there are two outdoor swimming pools to choose from. In addition, lakes and reservoirs in the Harz Mountains attract people to enjoy swimming in the nature.

There are many ways to cool down on a summer Harz excursion, due to the numerous lakes and reservoirs in the region which are approved for swimming or water sports. Small forest lakes or large adventure pools complete the offer. Therefore you should always have your swimming costumes with you when you embark on exciting excursions into the magical mountain world from Blankenburg (Harz) in summer.

For all water lovers, the Harz Tourist Association has put together useful information about fun in the water:
