My initial interest in Edersee was for the Dam Busters history, but my daughter and I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon lunch and walk around the area. The view of Waldeck Castle is cool and we had a lazy pizza lunch.

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.

A historical place to visit where you can walk along the top of the dam and take in all the views. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

I visited in the early afternoon, and parked in the cheap car park. I could hear the laughter of children playing in the facilities on the other side of the dam quite clearly - they sounded like they were having a fantastic time. A group...More

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.

We stopped at the dam, and walked over it. Unfortunately no power generation, the water was too low in the lake. Nice place for technical perspective.

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?
