The most well-known body of water is our Horstsee. With its approx. 70 hectare water surface, it has always been one of the largest bodies of water in the old district of Leipzig. But it also has a specialty and rarity:
Despite the fact that it was artificially created - probably at the beginning of the 16th century - by building two dams for fish use, it is unlikely that such a body of water is located directly on a watershed. Fed by the Saubach near Wermsdorf and a small tributary from the Wermsdorfer Walde, it has two outflows through the two dams mentioned. To the east, one of them feeds the upper reaches of the Döllnitz, which originated near Querbitzsch, and thus supplies water to the Elbe river basin. Its western outflow, however, feeds the Rodaer See and after it flows through the Mutzschener water. This runoff therefore benefits the river basin of the Mulde.The Horstsee owes its name to the striking island in the middle of the pond, which is called "the Horst" in old documents. It was once created artificially by backfilling during the excavation of the fish channel running through the lake floor. The main dam of the Horstsee serves as a state road and motorway feeder from Oschatz and Torgau to the Mutzschen junction of the A14. The Horstsee was artificially created for fish farming 500 years ago by the feudal lords of Starschedel zu Mutzschen. Today the lake is owned by the Free State of Saxony and has been leased to the master fish manager Georg Stähler since 1992. Every year on the second weekend in October, the Horstsee fishing is a great attraction for tens of thousands of visitors from near and far.
