Due to weather issues, it plainly started to rain as soon as we got here, we just did a scenic drive. Nice enough area though worth a longer better weather visit.

We visited as part of a coach tour following in the footsteps of bomber command. We visited the Eider dam as part of this. There are Restraunts here a few gift shops and a nice place for a wander.

Ideal lake for a good ride. Special lanes for cyclists. Negative is the enormous amount of motorbikes cruiing around the lake.

Iconic because of the famous Dambusters raid - you can still see the evidence of the breach. On a sunny day it was great to have a stroll across the dam and take in the views. Surrounding the area is a small very pleasant town...More

Standing on the dam you try to imagine that night 17th May when the Lancaster bombers flew across and attacked the dam - such memories never fade =,

Lake Edersee is the largest man-made lake in Germany, perhaps in all of Europe. We stayed in Schloss Waldeck, and had a lovely view of the lake.

Not that we were aware of. We had a car so sorry I can't help. However I did notice a bus stop at the bottom of the hill winding up to the castle, so there must be transport?
