Brougierpark Diving Site

In the Brougier Park, both beginners and experienced divers can enjoy exciting underwater experiences at a depth of up to 40 meters. At 18 meters below the water surface lies a tree trunk with a horn attached. Opinions differ as to whether or not this is underwater art...

Good to know: Between June 1st and August 31st, Brougier Park is reserved for swimmers and diving is not allowed.
