    In any season, the approximately 9.6 km long round around the dam has its charm. If you want to quiet it should be there in the morning during the week, as it can be very crowded on the weekend

    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 Obernau was formerly a village namely Obernau. The small village has been razed to the ground just for this reason

    Beautifully situated dam. On the weekend better not go on the asphalt roundabout, but use the surrounding forest trails, as the normal way is very busy. (Applies to nice weather).

    As a running route, I recommend going counter-clockwise. For walks it is advisable, depending on the position of the sun, to start clockwise in order to be able to soak up as much sun rays as possible.

    You can also walk the route suggested by Komoot as a lap from the Obernautalsperre car park. If you don't want to be out and about on Sundays and public holidays, there is always plenty of free parking space here.
