    There are also countless reports of floods in the history of the Augsburg high drain. So were z. B. in the years 1721, 1723 and 1729 to repair dam breaks. In 1737 alone there were six floods, and in 1789, 1803, 1807, 1816 and 1824 there were further major breaches. For a long time, the population of Augsburg had to live with the situation of a mountain river that was still largely unregulated, the course and amount of water constantly changing. The great accidents such as the “Ascension Pour”, in which large parts of Europe and the region around Augsburg were flooded in August 1501, were remembered. In addition to the spectacular event of the complete destruction of the old Hochablasse in 1910, the Whitsun flood of 1999, during which the Wertach flooded the Pfersee district, is still in current memory.

    Hochablass Lechwehr station 17 of the Augsburg water system
    The Hochablass has been an essential part of Augsburg's hydropower use for over 70 years. This is where most of the channels originate. Today's appearance is roughly the same as in 1912.

    The high event is impressive and offers a beautiful panorama around it, and it is almost at the Kuhsee, which is a popular swimming lake with catering and sanitary facilities.

    The high indulgence is always worth a trip, and often it just lies on the track anyway.

    Please drive with care or push straight away. You are almost never alone there. ;-)

    Very nice building with a bell tower from 1910. Architecturally and hydraulically interesting: start of the Lech channels for Augsburg, fish stairs, also regulates the water level of the nearby Kuhsee, ice channel nearby, etc.
