Great place to walk with lots of Cafe's close by. Excellent for family swimming on warmish days. Peddle boats available. It is also worth walking around the village

Schalkenmehren is the ideal starting point for a walk around the 3 Maare. You can stop half-way at the Waldcafé or have 'Kaffee and Kuchen' in the Café Maarblick in Schalkenmehren.
