A classic tour: a walk around the lake Großensee. The way is signposted. You start at the camping ground Großensee. Walk along the open air bath to the Eastern banks of Großensee - Northern beach Großensee - pass the waterworks - across the Pfefferberg to the picturesque village Großensee. Turn left at the village pond at "Am Soll" in the old village centre. he grand farmyard "Am Soll Nr. 1" is worth to look at. FYou should reward yourself for the 6.5 kilometres lakeshore walk visiting the inn "Alter Dorfkrug". The cobble stone pavement leads to a clinker building typical for this region. You can take a rest in the lime tree covered beer garden. Then, return to the camping ground along the old church alley along lush horse pastures and our lovely lake.
You will always find beautiful tracks and passages on your trips in Großensee. In our village, at our lake and in our countryside.
