Description dive spot:
The entrance can be reached on foot from the parking garage, past a miniature golf course. On the waterfront use the stairs, which was recently renewed and extended for divers, down to the water. Do not forget the dive flag, otherwise it could be expensive!
The drop off can be reached by diving down the heap. The wall begins at about 24 meters and ends at about 43 meters. Here it goes again over a heap deeper into the lake.
Noteworthy is the overhang on the wall at 40 meters. The visibility varies depending on the season (in the summer usually worse) and diving between 1 and 10 meters above and 3 to 15 meters at the cliff.
From the beginning of the drop off to about 24 meters, a lamp is required.
