The reservoir which was completed in 1933 as Essen's recreation area offers many leisure and sports facilites. The fully developed circular path around the sea offers bikers, skaters and pedestrians a lot of space. On the water many canoeists as well as sailers and rowers can be seen. The White Fleet invites you for a tour on the reservoir and numerous restaurants indulge you with snacks.
A highlight, especially for younger people, is the Seaside Beach Club. There, you can relax with palms, sandy beach, a surfing school and a cocktail bar. Especially during good weather periods the Baldeneysee in Essen is a great place for recreation seekers. The beautiful landscape and the distinctive offering of leisure facilities make you forgetting the daily routine.
Numerous restaurants invite you for snacks and drinks. Sports facilities, boat trips and trips with the museum train are attractions of the Baldeneysee. But also the bikers, hikers and skaters use the circular path around the reservoir. Moreover, all-season events, such as skating classes and music festivals attract many visitors.
