The Schlesingerteich is situated in a quiet area, surrounded by woods and meadows, just a few hundred metres from the village of Bärnkopf. The 200-year-old pond attracts not only anglers, but also bathers in summer who want to enjoy the unspoilt nature.

Admission to the pond is free!

Numerous festivals and celebrations are organised on the lake: e.g. Sautro races or horse festivals with romantic horse-drawn carriages.
