Natural Feature
“You want to have some fun an take a bath? Enjoy a beach in the middle of the city? Then you're right @ Wöhrder See! As a new feature in 2019, I rent out my personal Stand-Up-Paddling Board. These (2x) can be used to explore the lake and take a bath in the middle, apart from the possibly crowded beach. If you don't enjoy water, you can simply take a walk round the lake or enjoy your spot on the spacious lawn to the west of the lake. ”
