    Nice lake, also suitable for swimming. Very quiet area, I was all alone there, no human soul was to be seen.
    Parking spaces are nearby.

    With a little luck, you can see kingfishers here!

    In the permanently dammed-up basin with two long inlet bays, the left Rappenbach and the right Schmiddis unite to the Haslach, which flows approximately northwards, which drains between Rot an der Rot and Zell into the Rot and then further to the Danube.
    The earth dam is 16.6 m high and 210 m long on the crown. It continuously stagnates 290,000 m³ of water on an area of 10.8 ha. In the event of flooding, it can also hold back 1,490,000 m³. The building was completed in 1975.
    Before the construction there was a devastating flood on 17.8.1969 due to the breakage of the old retaining dam
