The site is an old gravel excavation area, on the left
bank of the Moselle River. The site consists of several
small to large ponds and lakes, all varying in depth.
These drained lakes in Remerschen are part of a natural
reserve where you can watch rare species of birds.
Important: There is only one lake where water sports
Main site: In this recreation and sports area,
located beside the Moselle, 2 lakes are reserved for the
public. One is reserved for fishing (licence compulsory on
sale at the lake) and the other is intended for
watersports like swimming, diving, windsurfing, canoeing,
depth: The depth of the main public lake is 4-5 m.
Rainfall is the main source of water supply. Flooding of
the Moselle River also contributes to higher water levels,
but not in a major way as the site is located somewhat
higher than the Moselle, and the two are not in direct
Visibility: The visibility is quite reduced in
the lake, about 1 m in average. After long rain periodes
the visibility can alter to less then 1 m, then diving
becomes not very interesting.
Some Luxembourg Red List species can be found at the site.
Wine tasting: The mild, sunny climate of the
Moselle is ideal for wine-making. White wines such as
Riesling, Rivaner and Elbling are the most popular. Top
quality wines are labelled Grand Premier Cru. Wine cellars
are happy to receive visitors. For further information,
