When travelling abroad, the best place to select accommodation is to select a town, in between two of your destinations. This way you get to explore a third place which you wouldn’t bother to stop by otherwise. When going from the Black Forest region of Germany to the city of Munich, I did the same. I stayed the night at Weinheim, Germany.
Weinheim is a small town of Germany nearby the city of Heidelberg. Waidsee, Weinheim is a beautiful Lake here. It has some castles, an old synagogue and Waidsee Lake. There is also the Miramar next to the lake Waidsee, which is a thermal spa and sauna complex. The town is situated in a valley and has lots of fields, markets, and an exotic forest too.
Waidsee, Weinheim, Germany
I had my accommodation nearby the Waidsee Lake at NH Hotel. In the morning, I woke up to explore it thoroughly. After taking my maps and asking a few directions to the early risers. I made my way through the paths across the fields laden with crops on both sides.
On the way, I also came across the Miramar. And then as I walked past Miramar some twinkling blue towards my left caught my attention. There I was standing across the Lake.
I picked up a trail that went around the Lake. It was a walk of around 45 minutes. All along the trail were different types of plants and trees. In and around the lake I spotted some birds too.
Once in a while, I would meet a stranger. Locals did come to this place for an early morning walk. Many of them smiled at me and uttered ‘Guten Morgen!’
Recreations at Waidsee, Weinheim
There are several hotels and apartments along the Lake Waidsee, Weinheim. Also, the depth of the lake allows for Lake diving. The lake is visited by locals as well as foreign lake water diving enthusiasts. There are benches along one side and also at regular intervals along the trail. On some days raft making competitions are organised here. The Lake is also perfect for rowing in a boat. Needless to say, swimming in the lake is also enjoyable.
