Activities/Climate

Weather forecast for Sankt Wendel, Saarland

Following the Summit tradition, we plan on Wednesday afternoon a trip to Bostalsee, the largest lake in Saarland and now a locally popular recreation center, some 20km to the northwest of Sankt Wendel. (The Google map satellite image shows an outdated picture taken a few years ago when the lake was almost dried up. The location has since been significantly reshaped. The Bing map's satellite image is more up-to-date and appealing.) Recreation Center Bostalsee offers various activity options, including rental motor/peddle boats, windsurfing, fishing (license required), cycling, access to lake beach & swimming, or simply a relaxing 6.8km walk around the lake (mostly paved roads). Please pack your equipments accordingly (walking shoes, swimsuits, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, etc.). Public transportation from the hotel to Bostalsee takes about 35 minutes, transferring just once at the nearby town Türkismühle, where our banquet will start from 19:00 at Schreiner's Restaurant (Saarbrückerstr.34, 66625 Nohfelden, 200m from the Türkismühle train station).
