The Stadtwaldsee is an excavation lake in Bremen, Germany. It is commonly known as the Unisee due to its proximity to Bremen University. At an elevation of 1m, its surface area is 28.2ha.LocationThe lake is located in the Horn-Lehe district of Bremen, north of Bürgerpark (the main city park) and the Stadtwald (city forest) between Technologiepark Bremen (Bremen Technology Park) and Bundesautobahn 27 in the north.UseOn the northeastern shore is the so-called "Uni-Wildnis", a nature reserve, a nude beach and, somewhat further west, the camping ground "HanseCamping Bremen". To the southeast, on the shore closest to the university, lies a grassy recreational area with a sand beach that is open to the public for swimming. There are occasional concerts and open air events in this area.The western end of the lake is currently used by windsurfers, anglers and divers. A water skiing facility being planned in 2005 and 2007 caused a dispute between a citizens' initiative and a majority in the City Advisory Council on the one side and the Minister for Interior and Sport (the potential operator) on the other side. Several investors plan to build hotel or wellness facilities against the will of the local residents on the north-eastern part of the lake.In summer the water often develops an algae buildup, so the lake must occasionally be closed for swimming.Plan trip to Bremen with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
