The Obernautalsperre in Netphen-Brauersdorf is the largest drinking water dam of the Siegerland with 15 million cubic meters of capacity. It has become an attraction for recreation seekers from near and far. Although it is managed by the Wasserverband Siegen-Wittgenstein and supplies large parts of the region with drinking water, it is known to most people more as a recreational area.
Around the Obernautalsperre leads an approximately 10 km long paved circular route, from which the pedestrian sexy prospects on the water surfaces and the wooded slopes open. The circuit is suitable for a variety of activities such as hiking, cycling, inline skating, jogging and Nordic walking.
The journey takes place via the road "Zur Talsperre" in Netphen-Brauersdorf. At the end of the street, large parking areas offer various parking facilities for cars. On the way to the dam there is also a public toilet.

The Obernautalsperre is the barrier structure of the 86 hectare Obernau reservoir in the southwest of the Rothaargebirge. It is located in the Brauersdorf district of Netphen in the Siegen-Wittgenstein district. The Obernaustausee is used to supply drinking water to nearby towns and to protect against flooding. The villages of Obernau and Nauholz as well as part of Brauersdorf had to give way because they were flooded by the dammed water. Source: Wikipedia
