Tauchbasis Pretzien Steinbruchsee

The quarry lake is made up of three former quarries (Quarry Lake, Blue Lake, Deep Lake), which are now connected by the increased water level.

There are some sturgeons and perches in the lake. These were probably inserted by hand, as there is no inflow of fresh water.
