The relatively small lake is a very good example of the coexistence of local recreation and nature conservation.
As a flooded brown coal open pit, the Großstolpener See looks rather tiny compared to its neighboring lakes. Nevertheless, it enjoys great popularity, whether as a beach with a snack bar, a sunbathing lawn or a place to swim to cool off at the end of a bike tour. In addition to playgrounds and sports facilities, the area represents a good example of the coexistence of recreation and nature conservation.
