The Leyenweiher is a dam pond which was created around 1845. In order to control the flood of Leyenbaches better, it was dammed with dams. At greater depths, the water lilies settle. There is still a fish population. The Leyenweiher is one of the most dragonfly-rich waters of the Wahner Heide.

In the meantime, some highlights have already been set in the Wahner Heide. That speaks for itself. And if you want to convince yourself in advance, I'll "kill" you with my photo potpourri
All the hikes there I hiked at least once. My favorites are Telegraphenberg-Tour (10,6km, passing the restaurant "Heidekönig") and Fliegenberg-Tour (8,4km). Best starting point are the parking Wahner Heide / Telegraphenberg right and left of the Altenrather road.
Sturdy shoes are advisable. After long rains some trails are quite muddy. In spring, the broom blooms in the late summer heather. A gentle landscape with lakes, surrounded by forest. The nearby airport does not bother. You can see the planes "within reach", interesting.
Benches and trash cans are looked for in vain, except at the Leyenweiher. So be prepared to take the garbage home with you;)
Local are located in the outskirts. I especially recommend the "Heath King" !!!!
If you like, you can download the current roadmap Wahner Heide here .... and who knows, maybe you meet each other :)

The Leyenweiher is a reservoir that was created around 1845. In order to better control the flood of the Leyenbach, it was dammed with dams. Pond management was also carried out here. Today there is still a fish population of near-natural size in the Leyenweiher. Considerable populations of water lilies settle at greater depths. The Leyenweiher belongs to one of the most dragonfly-rich waters of the Wahner Heide. (Wilhelm Mazander, fotomaz.de)
