The south of Leipzig, a former opencast mining area, has been flooded over the last ten years and turned into a series of relaxing lakes. Cospudner is the first of these.
Hire a bike in the city, and cycle the 20 mins through the wonderful parks and forest to the lake, where you can take a dip in the water, and have lunch at the harbour, or even cycle the 10 km around the lake
