  • A surprising setting in summer as in winter, there are various activities that are offered for different age groups, but it is possible to walk along the Lakes. Without forget to visit the dam!

  • Nice to walk around the lakes. A lot of nature but the noise of the motorboats is soo annoying! They should forbid this!
  • Mooie omgeving met veel wandelroutes.
  • Very vacancies for humain people
  • Slowest restaurant ever ... However no haute cuisine.

  • This place is nice and perfect to make the market regardless of the time of year. The loop of the Plate size is a 17 Km to circumnavigate the Lake. Possibility of many activities such as sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving. Don't forget to bring your camera!
