Diving in Northern Germany

From Hemmoor to Wildschütz to Brass Hausen - Germany is full of good diving, whether you want to dive in the North or Baltic seas, try out a lake or two or even go to an indoor diving center. The infrastructure is excellently designed so that beginners, advanced and technical divers alike are happy. You can experience amazing wrecks or fish ranging from carp and pike-perch to Danube salmon, bream, grayling, and eel. And if you are lucky to dive in some of its ancient waters, you will encounter spectacular rock formations, underwater forests or even drowned objects such as old aircraft, cars or buildings.
Northern Germany has plenty to offer travelers beyond its coastline, which itself is dotted with charming historic towns with medieval centers. There are lakes scattered across the landscape, from old quarries to manmade reservoirs and even high-altitude lakes with crystalline waters. Here, divers have added points of interest to explore with wrecks and artificial reefs that encourage a great variety of local fish such as pike, perch and catfish. Combine diving in this beautiful and varied area with visits to mountain retreats and castles as well as the port city of Hamburg.
