The “Zeulenrodaer Meer” is a popular destination for hikers and “water rats”.
The dam wall of the Zeulenroda reservoir is 307m high, and attracts water sports enthusiasts and swimmers during the warm season. There are several beaches for the day trippers to choose from, and for those who want to have an extended visit, the bungalow village of Zadelsdorf or the Bio-Seehotel Zeulenroda offer accommodation. Moreover, the Zeulenrodaer Meer is situation on the Talsperrenweg – a circular trail that takes you through dense woods, expansive meadows and through the Weida valley.
The trail around the Riedelmühle auxiliary dam is barrier-free, thereby also suitable for wheelchairs or baby carriages.
