With a surface of 3.8 km2, the storage lake is the heart of the Upper Sûre Nature Park. The headwaters of the Sûre are retained over a length of 17 km. In addition to its initial task of power generation, the storage lake is mainly used as Luxembourg’s drinking water reservoir, as a protection against flood and as a popular recreation area.

The Fuussefeld beach is located west of the village of Insenborn and it is one of the most popular beaches around the storage lake. The place is a paradise for sunbathers, but there are also trees on one side of the meadow, for those who prefer the shade. A nearby parking is available, charges apply in summer.

The idyllic beach on the Burfelt headland is almost devoid of trees providing shade. The beach cannot be reached directly by car, all the parking spaces are located on a higher plateau. Visitors have to expect a 20 minutes walk to get to the beach.

The beautiful and idyllic small beach Rommwiss is located right on the edge of the forest, thus it is well shaded. Unlike the other beaches, the water is rather shallow in this place and the lake bed is gently sloping. The access via narrow country lanes is somewhat adventurous.
