Copenhagen/Vogt – According to EU experts, the bathing waters in Baden-Württemberg almost always have excellent water quality – only three bathing areas were classified as poor. For example, the Holzmühleweiher in Vogt near Ravensburg, the Sunthauser See near Bad Dürrheim and the Lauchert near Hörschwag in the Zollernalb district.
The European Environment Agency EEA certified 90.2 percent of almost 2,300 analyzed German bathing lakes, rivers and coastal waters in a report published on Friday excellent water conditions. Data from 2022 was analyzed.
In a European comparison, the Federal Republic continues to rank among the upper midfield when it comes to water quality. Cyprus, Austria, Greece and Croatia do best, followed by Denmark, Malta, Bulgaria, Romania – and Germany in ninth place. On average, the bathing water quality of 85.7 percent of the bodies of water was classified as excellent in the EU, and 95.9 percent at least met the EU minimum standards.
For the annual report, the Copenhagen-based EEA analyzed data from 2022 on 21,973 bodies of water in Europe, including 2,292 in Germany. The report covers bathing waters in the 27 EU countries plus Albania and Switzerland.
The Environment Agency looked at the pollution of the water with faecal bacteria, which can lead to diseases in humans. The EEA noted that the health risk of swimming in lakes, rivers and coastal waters in the European Union is very limited.
Only 14 of the analyzed German bathing spots were classified as unsatisfactory by the EU authority, which is the same value as in the previous year. For such places, the EEA advises bathing bans, warnings or other measures.
