Starting with the Obersauerstausee, which has a total of six bathing zones: Rommwiss, Liefrange, Burfelt, Fuussefeld, Insenborn and Lultzhausen. But beware: as last year, visitors to the Lac de la Haute-Sûre, who want to relax on the sunbathing lawns must make a reservation in advance. This can be done free of charge via the website www.visit-eislek.lu or the ÉislekApp. A maximum of 5 places can be reserved per person. Whereas in 2020 visitors only had to make reservations on weekends and public holidays, reservations are now also compulsory on weekdays. Anyone who has already made a reservation and then cannot come to the booked sunbathing lawn after all should cancel their reservation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Activities during which visitors do not stay on the sunbathing lawn are excluded from the reservations. Accordingly, visitors do not need to make a reservation if they wish to hike along the reservoir or go kayaking or fishing on the reservoir, for example. The latest information on the reservoir region is available on the website of the reservoir municipality: www.lac-haute-sure.lu

The area closes at a minimum of 18.00 and, depending on the weather conditions, at 20.00. The entrance fee is 5 euros, access is free for children under 10.
