Diving in Germany

Explore diving in Germany

Germany offers divers and wonderful variety. You can sink deep in to crystal clear Alpine lakes or take the plunge into the Baltic Sea. With the exception of the Baltic Sea wrecks, most of the diving is in freshwater, many at altitude in stunning surroundings. WWII buffs, you’ve found your calling. There is shipwreck after shipwreck in Germany.

Another huge draw are the many “Sees” in Germany. With uncompromised visibility, the sights stretch as far as you can see. Several sites are flooded quarries and lakes. Some have unexpected wonders, like the Sundhäuser See.

In addition, Bodensee, or Lake Constance, is an unreal Alpine lake that is not to be missed. It’s the third largest lake in Central Europe, and there is plenty of technical diving to be had in this incredible place.
