Lake Kemnade

Kemnader See is the place to take a breather away from the vibrant Ruhr cities. The Ruhr reservoir is situated at the intersection between Bochum, Hattingen and Witten and offers a wealth of leisure activities. The route around the lake has a length of eight kilometres. The path for ramblers and joggers runs directly by the water; a bike lane runs parallel to it, and in 2012 a third lane was launched, namely one for inline skaters. People who enjoy being on water rent a pedalo or embark on a voyage across the lake and the Ruhr River. On land, there are playgrounds for children, a mini golf course and countless eateries. In the summer, "Strandeck" attracts many visitors; here, you can lounge with your cocktail on a sunbed, enjoying the view over the lake. You can also book a beach volleyball court.
