Rothsee/Damm

The Rothsee is a typical training water near Nuremberg. It is also a nice alternative to other waters for trained divers. Since there are certain customs and laws to be observed, we recommend that you either explore the lake or contact a center near you in advance.

Depending on the season and conditions, small perch, one or two pike and usually well hidden large eels await you.
