Lovely day out
Aug 2020 • Couples
Easy enough to get here from the city centre - just take the no 1 or 11 tram, then it's a short walk down the hill to the water's edge. You can either walk round or take a boat out to get to various stopping off points for sunbathing, picnicking or paddle boarding. It was a sunny day and a great spot for the locals to unwind. Plenty of share and forest walks if preferred. We decided on the Veveri castle stop, which was very pleasant (see separate review). All in all a great day out

When every time I visit Brno I must go to the lake it's like a habit for me.
You can have walk, drink coffee and enjoy the breathtaking view.
I strongly recommend the place for families, friends & couples.

Beautiful hike along the dam
Apr 2019 • Couples
This place is great for hiking on a nice day. We were too early for the boat to start (from May onwards or weekends) which to me was a good thing as I ended up hiking. The Restaurants are near the boat place but dont start your hike there if you can. There is no walkway for pedestrians and you end up walking along the main road - not fun. If you can drive along the shore to the right and find a car park further in, for example past the resort. Then the way is well marked by a red and white stripe and goes along these small and not so small beautiful chalets. There are some Restaurants along the way till you pass the settlements and can enjoy the quiet - well, on a weekday 😉. Keep hiking till the path becomes more rocky but meanders right along the shore, and you are rewarded with some spectacular views of the castle.

Spring on the dam
Apr 2019 • Solo
I caught tram No 1 to the Brno dam from main station, it took 30 minutes and then short walk to dam. There were plenty of food shops along the way. I took the dam to the castle which took 50 minutes. The boat goes every 45 minutes. You can sit indoors or if weather permits up top and get a great view. The boat makes a couple of stops on the way. Another short walk to castle. The day I went to the castle there was a re-enactment of WWII with German and Russian soldiers trucks, motorcycles and medical tents. It was a lot of fun to see with a variety of souvenirs and food stalls. Very relaxing day.

A day break from the city! Must :)

When you are in Brno and you have more days to visit, it is really good idea to visit Brno water dam.

What to expect: huge dam with lovely nature around. Castle Veveri to visit. Good for date, for walking around, swimming, family trip, friends trip, water sports, sunbathing..

How to get there: the best is to take tram 1 from HLAVNI NADRAZI (Main train station) in direction Ondrouškova and get off at Přístaviště. It takes 30mins approx. You need to buy 1hour ticket, as there are no 30mins ticket. Do not forget to mark it in the tram.

What to do there:
- sunbathing, watersports,
- there are some restaurants and also fast-food snack bars
- in June there is annual Ignins Brunensis - international fireworks exhibition
- you can take boat trip till the end of the dam and on the way you can get of as many times as you want and come back then. The best stop is for the CASTLE VEVERI
- It is really worth to take this tour, it is nice and relaxing

BOAT TOUR (not guided tour,it is just a ride):
- boat operates usually every 45mins or hourly from 8am - 5pm - however this depends on the season and the level of the water etc.
- you can check the timetable of this boat at the web of Brno Transport office
- The areal of Veveri castle is open in April - October on weekends and public holidays from 9am - 5pm, from May - September daily except Monday from 9am - 6pm
- you can buy ticket only for the boat tour or also for the castle
- Castle Veveri is very nice to visit, the area around is very nice and external area of the castle
- there are also some exhibitions to visit, however we did not visit them

Have fun!
ps: for the boat tour always check the web of the transport office of Brno
