Lake Kemnad – Relaxation and action in Bochum

A beautiful piece of nature and various possibilities to relax or be active. This is exactly what Lake Kemnad, situated on the border between Bochum, Hattingen and Witten, has to offer. During a walk around the lake you have the option: To take the long route around the lake of about 10 kilometres or the shorter round trip with a length of about 8.3 kilometres? In any case, you will enjoy an impressive view of one of the most beautiful lakes in the Ruhr Area. Various beer gardens, cafés and restaurants provide for your culinary well-being.

100 percent holiday feeling

Especially in the summer months, the leisure paradise Lake Kemnad is very popular among "water rats". Then you have the opportunity to splash around in the leisure pool Heveney and swim a few laps and enjoy a real holiday feeling under palm trees on the approximately 1,500 m² of the BeachDeck on Lake Kemnad. Make yourself comfortable with your feet in the sand of the Beach Club or enjoy the cool water in the leisure pool – however, swimming is not permitted in the Kemnad reservoir itself. Sailors and surfers also get their money's worth. A boat rental service allows you to be a captain for once.

Active in sports at Lake Kemnad

Lake Kemnad is also an El Dorado for sports activities. You like to skate with your friends? The well-developed 10 kilometre long "Ruhr Inline" circuit with a great panorama is just the thing for you. The latest trend sport involves paddling while standing: Stand-up paddling tests your sense of balance. You can take your first steps at the surf school "WestUfer". The school is not just specialized in water sports. You can also go ashore from here - with the longboard.

Around the lake by bike

Lake Kemnad is also a great destination for a bicycle tour through the most beautiful areas of the Ruhr Area. The recreation area is connected to the popular Ruhr Valley cycle path (RuhrtalRadweg), which runs for about 230 kilometres from Winterberg to Duisburg. At Lake Kemnader See you can refresh yourself for the return journey and try out the wide range of culinary delights at one of the cafés, snack bars or restaurants.
