Messinghausen, See im Berg

This lake in the mountain is beautifully situated right in the mountain. The water is clear and rather cool. The training to become a Deep Diver is especially fun here. You could go down to a depth of 45 meters and with 480 meters of altitude, this is considered an altitude dive.

You will see sturgeons, perch, and pike swimming in the lake. However, there is also a bus and platform at different depths.
