    With about 16 km a beautiful circuit around the dam. Time on a small path right on the water, sometimes on paved paths. Always with a nice view of the dam.

    The large terrace of the tavern-restaurant has simple chairs and parasols. Your big plus is the fantastic view of nature and the relief of the water as well as the tranquility in the midst of nature, which gives you something like a holiday feeling.

    In addition, the playground for children from 2 years is within reach. From the terrace, parents can always keep an eye on their playing children and treat themselves to some rest. In the tavern with 80 seats, snacks, soft drinks, special beers, etc. are offered every day from 12 noon.

    The Wesertalsperre was built in 1936-1942 and 1946-1949 and put into operation in 1950. The barrier wall, including ground anchoring, is 63 meters high with a damming height of 57 meters. Weserbach, Getzbach and Hillbach feed their water. When the water is full, the surface of the lake is 126 hectares. The reservoir supplies Eupen, the Herver Land, the Liège region and the domain of Sart Tilman with drinking water. It is not pumped, but flows through gravity to Seraing. An average drinking water supply of 71,500 m3 can be guaranteed even in dry years. A small hydroelectric power plant built at the foot of the dam, with an annual output of 3 to 4 million kilowatt hours, supplies the surrounding area with electricity.

    At about 16 km once around the dam. Very close to the water on a small path, sometimes on a secured path. Nice view of the dam.

    In fine weather, the small lawn with views over the dam invites you to pause.

    Nice destination for hikers or mountain bikers. Here there is a 16 km long circular route with very impressive nature. Cozy and good food, with great views, there is also. Also very good to reach by car with enough parking spaces.

    Also easy to reach from Roetgen by bike via the Vennbahnradweg.
    From there then towards Raeren and back to Roetgen. Beautiful tour, especially in autumn
