Enjoying sports and keeping fit

Written by Garry on

 

The variety of sports activities available In and around Neuss is quite surprising. Come rain or shine, summer or winter, it is possible to spend time keeping active.

One example is water sports. Due to the geological property of the region, numerous quarries have been developed throughout the countryside to provide rocks for cement. When these deep quarries become disused, they are often landscaped and flooded to create fresh water lakes. They thus become ideal for recreation.

Skiing, golf, riding, soccer and many indoor sports are all on offer.

Diving

In the Grimlinghausen suberb of Neuss a fascinating centre has been created next to the flooded quarry. The plan is to sink several objects into the fairly deep waters to create a local paradise for all those who love the sensation of spending time under water.

Golf

Two golf courses are in use at Hummelbachaue. They have a challenging eighteen hole course with several streams, ponds and bunkers as well as a nine hole course for the less experienced. The largest training centre in Germany also awaits players.
