Those who visit the Markkleeberger See should definitely take a look at the model park Auenhain, which has large garden railways. Canoeing is also possible via the lock between Störmthaler and Markkleeberger See. The Geopfad, a geological time path near these two lakes, offers another destination for excursions. The numerous playgrounds and points and the landscape art around the lake should also not be forgotten. Especially for families the trip to the Markkleeberger See can score with this.

The holiday village Seepark Auenhain offers apartments and holiday homes for those looking for overnight accommodation. Accommodation is also possible on the tent and camping site directly at the Markkleeberger See.
