There are also well heated rooms to change and hot showers just next to the launching beach.

There is a lot of space in the UFOLEP sports centre, but if you need utmost tranquility to recover, plan to make a huge amount of noise at night or absolutely want to avoid François "Equerre"'s incredible snoring, below hotels may be your preferred option : in Giffaumont / 5 min by car Ste Marie-du-Lac, (André's favorite) 20 min by car Montier-en-Der / 10 min by car

there is also 1 Campanile and 2 Ibis Hotels in St Dizier / 20 min. by car

A bit of history and background to this lake :

Three villages had to be destructed to allow its construction, and a whole church was also moved to what became the shore of the lake, and in front of which we will have the joy to sail !  While not everybody agreed the project in the beginning, it is nowadays widely accepted, and a strong touristic activity grew up all around the lake.

Activities are centered around recreational activities and outdoor sports including: cycling, hiking, fishing, water-skiing, rowing, and of course sailing! With its 3 marinas, its numerous sailing clubs and several water sports bases, Lac du Der is one of the Meccas for sailing on a reservoir in France! The Lac du Der is also an internationally well known ornithological reserve, partly because tens of thousand of birds assemble here each spring during their migration.

City: Liefrange
Country: Luxemburg

The clubhouse of the famous Yachting Club of Luxemburg lies in the wonderful green valley of the Haute-Sure next to the national park. Throughout the region, you can find wonderful campgrounds, hiking trails, bike paths and of course a nice lake inviting sailing lovers to push their boat in its cristal water.

The lake of the Haute-Sûre is an artificial lake located in the north of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It is the result of the construction of an hydraulic work on the river Sûre: the dam of Esch-sur-Sûre. Apart from its function of providing drinking water, it is a remarkable site of leisure (fishing, beaches, water sports). Its dam allows to supply electrical energy and participates in the regulation of the Sûre by guaranteeing on one side a regular low water level and by playing on the other side the role of a flood control.
