Lower Rhine Diving

The diving areas in the region of the Lower Rhine are not quite as spectacular as some coral reefs in the South Pacific, but these diving sites also have their own charm. Some lakes in the region offer an insight into the local fish world, other lakes are particularly deep and still others are rather shallow. Some are very unique like the gasometer in Duisburg. Here you can dive in an old industrial building. Both experienced divers and beginners will find numerous opportunities to go underwater.

Diving Lake Lower Rhine


Diving is more than just a sport. Diving brings people into a world for which they were not actually created. So diving is always associated with a small adventure and, depending on the diving area, a fascinating natural experience. You can dive all year round in the region of the Lower Rhine in many lakes and dredging holes.

But nobody can go diving on the Lower Rhine on their own. Because a diving permit is required for the lakes and dredging holes. Since most dive sites are managed and maintained by clubs, you will not only receive information there but also diving permits.

Diving & Safety: In order to enjoy a dive to the fullest, special attention is paid to safety in diving. Not only must the diving equipment be in perfect condition, but the respective diver must have passed a medical examination.
