    On the left side of the lake you can walk very nicely. On the right side you will be able to walk mainly on the street. I do not recommend that.
    To the dam and the lake there are numerous Highligts with good explanations. On the lake itself a historical nature trail to build the wall on the left with five stations.
    To the directions: In the direction of flow / seen down the valley.

    In addition to the natural tributaries, the Schwarzenbach reservoir is filled with water from the Biberach and the Hundsbach via a tunnel that is over 5 kilometers long. The water is then led from the reservoir over another tunnel and then through a pressure line to the powerhouse.
    The current performance is shown on the left side of the dam.

    On the left side of the lake are also a few explanatory boards along the lake. One learns e.g. how the wall was created with lake.
