In Alūksne, it is so easy to jump out of the city into nature, because there is one of the cleanest lakes – Alūksne Lake, which offers locals and guests to find a place to cool off in the hot summer days or test yourself having a cool winter swims with a wonderful snowy view.
Almost in the very center of the city, the swimming place in Alūksne Castle Island always gathers a large number of vacationers and swimmers. It is especially popular with families with children – there is also a children’s playground, a well-maintained picnic area, and a summer cafe. After a refreshing in the water, you can also play beach volleyball or enjoy different water activities offered near the lake.
To get to the swimming place “Vējiņš”, you have to go to the park of Alūksne manor, which is rich with small architectural forms. This will be a suitable place for a peaceful rest near the lake, with a wonderful view of Temple Hill park and Alūksne Castle Island. In addition to swimming opportunities, the younger generation will enjoy relaxing in the children’s playground.
