Diving in Germany

Quick facts

Germany offers divers a cornucopia of dives. You can sink deep in to crystal clear alpine lakes or take the plunge into the Baltic Sea. No matter what venue you choose, you’re bound to be astounded.

WWII buffs, you’ve found your calling. There is shipwreck after shipwreck to see in Germany. Some of the most astounding wrecks are the Helland and the Hanau, found in the Baltic. There’s no better spot to get your wreck diving certification than here.

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. There is an entire city hidden beneath the waters, complete with a church and a graveyard. The only visitors here are divers and the fish that swim down the empty streets.

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.
