Tips

  • Peter

    To the drinking water dam it can be excellently hiking or cycling. The different inlets are a special highlight here. On the northwest side there is seating for lunch.

    The drinking water dam in Frauenau was created due to a lack of groundwater in the Bavarian Forest and was built from 1976 to 1983. The drinking water reservoir is a worthwhile excursion destination and also serves as a starting point for many hikes through the Bavarian Forest National Park.The tributaries are the Kleine Regen and the Hirschbach, which arise in the unpopulated area between Falkenstein and Rachel.Some beautiful hiking trails with wonderful views lead around the reservoir and in the direction of Kleiner Rachel and Großer Rachel or Kleiner Falkenstein and Großer Falkenstein.

    In summer, a wonderfully beautiful area for a hike or a ride around with the MTB.
    This is also very nice to look at from the Rachelsteig when you look down into the valley. Blue water and the dam looks like a small lake ☺

  • Patrick Z.

    The Frauenau drinking water dam in the Bavarian Forest was completed in 1983 to secure the drinking water supply. As there is a lack of groundwater in the Bavarian Forest due to the geological situation, a water reservoir was built which is fed by the rivers Kleiner Regen and Hirschbach. Up to 15 million m3 of water are made available annually via the water extraction tower. If the water level is too high, an overflow funnel prevents the lake from crossing the dam.
    The dam is 86 meters high.

    Not directly over the dam, a walk around the lake is rewarding

    Very nice viewpoint. It is very high and it takes a bit to reach this point. But when you get there it's all the nicer.

    Especially in the morning there is a pleasant calm. Together with the water, a soothing moment for the soul.

    "Useful information

    Origin: The dam was built between 1974 and 1984 (it went into operation in 1983).
    The almost 85 m high dam (at the time of construction the highest rock rubble dam in the Federal Republic of Germany), dams the small rain to a lake with almost 22 million m³ content.
    The water stored there is primarily used for the public water supply.
    It is removed from the lake via the extraction tower, mostly 21 m above ground, and fed to the processing plant on the Flanitzalm.

    Purpose: Flood water is to be caught in the dam, but it can also drain completely via the manhole overflow in the southwest of the lake.
    Locks at Hirschbach and Kleiner Regen hold back driftwood and leaves before the reservoir. ", Source: bayerischer-wald.de/Media/Attraktionen/Trinkwassertalsperre-Frauenau
