The Ziestsee lies east of the Dahme (Bindowerfliess) in the Brandenburg municipality of Heidesee . The larger northern part belongs to Bindow -Süd, while the smaller southern part belongs to Dolgenbrodt . It belongs to the Dahme lake area about 30 km southeast of Berlin . The Ziestsee is about 1 kilometer long and 500 meters wide and thus covers an area of ​​0.5 square kilometers .


The surface forms of the landscape were created by glaciers and meltwater after the last ice age . The Ziestsee, a shallow body of water surrounded by pine forests, was also created.

It is only fed by an underwater spring and a small stream provides a connection and drainage to the Dahme, which flows by a few 100 m away. A silting up tendency can be observed.

A rich bird fauna can be found in the dense belt of reeds that almost completely surrounds the lake. Live there except various ducks - and Rail species and herons , grebes and bitterns . The shore zone is also the habitat of some amphibian species and reptiles , e.g. B. the grass snake .

Fisheries and current uses

During the GDR era, the Ziestsee was an intensive body of water where private fishing was prohibited. Under state control, an intensive fishing industry attempted to remove bottlenecks in the supply of fresh fish to the population.

Today the lake is only used for rest and relaxation for bathers and residents of the holiday homes on the shore. Driving on the Ziestsee with motorized boats is not permitted.
