Water sports

The area around DIE SONNE on the Eder and the Edersee

Let the wind blow in your face on the Edersee. Excellent sailing awaits you on a lake where the World Championship for the Masters has already been held. The panorama of the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park offers a great view. Freely accessible bays invite you to go for a swim and have a picnic. An experienced skipper accompanies you on the trip. You can also go sailing without a skipper if you have a sailing license. In inclement weather, the more ambitious sailor can look forward to a sporting trip. And if tranquillity is more your style, you will certainly get your money’s worth when you go sailing on an elegant electric yacht.
