Data & Description

Rating¹:
good

Position:
on the outskirts of Überlingen in direction to Sipplingen

Altitude:
395 meters

Description dive spot:
Parking and and dressing either on the quayside (be careful, sometimes heavy traffic) or in the parking lot of the construction business "Baugraf". We recommend the street, where there are always enough parking spaces.
Entry either to the left of the road via a steep staircase (which in itself is more of a wall than a staircase). Once a rope was attached here, to make it possible at all, getting down the stairs and back up with full equipment. At this entry you have to work your way through the waist deep water (at normal water level in Lake Constance) to the wall.
The second entrance is on the right towards the campsite. Here a safe but steep ladder made of metal is attached. This entry also has the advantage that the wall begins directly a few meters after the stairs.
The wall goes to about 25-30 meters, there a heap leads deeper into the lake. At this dive site there are many things that have been installed by divers there, such as a mannequin, a phone and a welded erotic booklet. In the immediate vicinity of the mannequin is the wreck of a large rowing boat with garden gnome on the bow.
In summer, many smaller boats like to anchor in front of the Navigation Mark 24.
