With a surface area of 1.53 hectares, Lake Gampriner Seelein was created through extreme erosion, known as “scouring”, during a flood of the Rhine River in 1927. In 1961, the scenic spot was declared a protected area by the government. With its belt of silt and the surrounding gallery forest, the lake provides a habitat for valuable aquatic flora and for many birds and small animals.
