So many of my friends here in Wiesbaden are asking what lake I am going to. It’s about 20 minutes from post and very inexpensive. It’s especially great for our family since Hayden is so highly sensitive to chlorine! Their website is informative, with pricing and hours. A few things to remember:
5 and older: 1€
under 5: Free
(You can buy a 10-punch-pass which basically costs the same as 6 visits, giving you 4 free ones. We did that this summer!)
Parking is free M-TH, but 2.50€ on F, S and S as well as German Holidays.
Once you park, it’s quite a walk to the lake so make sure you have a wagon, stroller, or a slew of kids to help you carry your stuff to the lake.
There are nice, clean bathrooms, exterior showers for rinsing off, and sometimes a little snack stand is open (ice cream, pommes frites, etc.). There are a few picnic tables and plenty of trash cans. We always picnic there, taking plenty of water, fruit, sandwiches, and ALWAYS sunscreen.
Floats are allowed, and there’s a yellow floating line in the water marking the edge of the shallow water.
The address is:
