Maschsee (Hannover)


The Maschsee is located a mere 500m from the city centre. The official swim spot is at the south end of the lake.

Grid Ref



As if practically being in the centre of the city isn’t enough some kind sole has put down loads of sand to make a beach. Although they have also build changing rooms, showers, bars and a fence so they can charge you!


The bottom of the lake had a very slimey feel to it. Hopefully its not related to the duck poo which abounds on the adjacent grass.
