Lake Wallendorf

Description:

You will find the three beach areas in Löpitz, Burgliebenau and Wallendorf.

The remaining holes 1a and 1b of the Merseburg Ost opencast mine were acquired in 2003 by the then Saale-Elster-Luppe-Aue special-purpose association with the support of the Schkopau municipality. The two remaining holes were flooded in 1998 to 2000 by pipelines from the Weisse Elster. The resulting lakes were given the names Wallendorfer See and Raßnitzer See in 2002.

You will find the three beach areas in Löpitz, Burgliebenau and Wallendorf.

The remaining holes 1a and 1b of the Merseburg Ost opencast mine were acquired in 2003 by the then Saale-Elster-Luppe-Aue special-purpose association with the support of the Schkopau municipality. The two remaining holes were flooded in 1998 to 2000 by pipelines from the Weisse Elster. The resulting lakes were given the names Wallendorfer See and Raßnitzer See in 2002. Each of the two lakes has a water surface of about 300 hectares. Starting points for a visit to the lakes are the car parks in Burgliebenau and Wallendorf as well as existing parking spaces in the village of Raßnitz. They are close to the cycle and hiking paths with a total length of approx. 25 km. There are eight information boards with general maps and tips. From the observation tower in Raßnitz, which was renovated in 2010, you have a good view over both lakes. A visit is worthwhile in every season. The Wallendorfer See, which was created from the Merseburg-Ost open-cast mine closed down in 1991 together with the Raßnitzer See immediately to the east, is being developed into a standing watercourse for gentle water tourism as well as for nature and landscape. Around the lakes, a network of cycle and hiking trails is being created with connections to the regional routes. A bathing beach is planned in the area of the village of Burgliebenau. After the gravel extraction adjoining the lake to the west has been discontinued, the shallow water areas that are being created there will be left to natural succession as a link to the nearby Saale floodplain. The special features of the lake are its bordering on stately floodplain forests along the Weißer Elster in the north and the Luppe in the south, as well as the salt inputs into the water body from the cut geological layers, which are still occurring and are reminiscent of the former salt coal deposits.
