Galderse Meren Noord

The Galderse Lakes is an area of recreational lakes south of Breda. It is an easy practice location for diving and there are several underwater objects to dive to (wrecks, ropes course, platforms, etc).

Because of the fluctuating pH values, there is relatively little life in the lake. With a lot of luck, you will see a small fish or amphibian.
