Watersports on Lake Brombach

Action on the lake: Lake Brombach – a sports paradise

The Franconian Lake District is situated in Middle Franconia and is the perfect destination for both professional and amateur water sports aficionados. When the wind blows, it is windsurfers and kiters in particular that fluster to Lake Brombach. If you're arriving into Langlau on the train, you can hire all the windsurfing gear you need in the surfing school. The school also offers windsurfing and kitesurfing lessons.

The popular sport of stand-up paddling (SUP) is a bit more relaxing. You can hire a board, paddle and a neoprene rubber suit, all prices you can find here. And then you're off! Or you could book yourself an SUP lesson, to acquire the necessary skills first.

You can also hire a kayak for half a day (all prices here), or a two-man kayak, if you prefer to explore the lake as a team. You don't even need to bring provisions. There are several beer gardens around the lake, ready to dish up a hearty meal to hungry paddlers. The beer garden "Zum Hafen" on the Absberg peninsular, for example, serves extremely tasty food. It is easily accessible from the point at which you set off, even for beginners. Our tip: Try the trout, which is freshly smoked on-site.

After your excursion, you can regain your strength in the Landgasthof Krokodil in Langlau. Relax in the beer garden and enjoy a delicious German or Croatian speciality, such as Rahmschnitzel (veal escalope with cream sauce) and Croatian grill. The restaurant is very close to both the station and the Tourist Information Centre at Seestraße 14.

Directions: Take the train to Langlau station. Walk left up Bahnhofstraße and then turn right up Seestraße (second street). Go past the Crazy Golf course (Minigolf) and continue down towards the lake. The walk takes around 15 minutes. The surfing school is right by the camp site.
