Spremberg dam and reservoir
+++ Attention: Since 14.06.2022 a general decree of the district Spree-Neiße/Wokrejs Sprjewja-Nysa on the prohibition of bathing and other uses in and on parts of the Spremberg/Grodk dam (Spremberg reservoir) is in force. Bathing, boating, surfing, water skiing and angling are prohibited within two metres on the water side in front of the shore of the Spremberg/Grodk dam (Spremberg reservoir). This prohibition applies, among other things, to the area described here from the dam wall of the reservoir south to the end of the bathing beach of the Spree Camp ("Bagenzer Seite") on the territory of the municipality of Neuhausen/Spree. +++
Dense forest, lush greenery, marshland and water shape the landscape around Spremberg reservoir. The lake, created by the only river dam in the state of Brandenburg, is a great place for enjoying peace and tranquillity in the great outdoors. The reservoir is situated in a conservation area and is a roosting place as well as a breeding and feeding ground for many bird species, including ospreys and black storks.
It is also ideal for swimming, fishing, sailing and rowing. Further sports and leisure activities such as miniature golf, table tennis, football and volleyball as well as playgrounds complement the varied tourism offering. The water festival in June is an annual highlight and features a dragon boat race as its headline attraction.
There is much to explore around the lake – on foot, on in-line skates or by bike. And if you don’t have your own on hand, you can hire a bike nearby.
Spremberg dam was constructed on the Spree river between 1958 and 1965. The water build-up behind the dam formed Spremberg reservoir. In addition to its function as a leisure destination, the lake is also used to regulate regional water supply.
