Best Mountain Biking Routes to Wehebachtalsperre
Tips
  • If you don't feel like mass tourism, you're in good hands here. I often use the routes around the Wehebachtalsperre on bridge days or on Sundays because the North Eifel Nature Park is often overcrowded then. Another advantage is the nature of the paths. These are easily passable even after long periods of rain. However, single trails in the area are a real rarity. A highlight are definitely the large beaver dams on the Rote Wehe.

  • The dam is surrounded by a very beautiful forest. Beavers have been settling here again for some time. However, you should note that not all paths continue, but end at the lake.

  • The Wehebachtalsperre in the municipality of Hürtgenwald is the third largest and probably the most pristine dam in the entire northern Eifel region. It offers hikers numerous hiking trails and impressive opportunities to learn about the water element. It is accessible on foot from the villages of Großhau and Kleinhau. The Wehebachtalsperre has been in operation since 1983 and was built for flood protection in the Wehe and Indetal valleys as well as for the supply of drinking and utility water. Strict water protection rules apply. Therefore, leisure activities in and around the Wehebachtalsperre are completely prohibited. This means that nature can develop without being disturbed. Thus, numerous beaver castles can be admired at this dam. Impressive still today: the old country road number 11 between Kleinhau and Schevenhütte crosses the Wehebachtalsperre and has become impassable due to the damming of the Wehebachtal.
    Nature and hiking lovers of all ages will find suitable options here, whether you dare to stroll through the wood-surrounded Wehebachtalsperre, want to take on the nearby Laufenburg or want to stroll through the valley from the Wehe to the old monastery church of Wenau. As the name of the neighboring village "Schevenhütte" indicates, it was the site of a pre-industrial steel factory, traces of which can still be seen in the village (e.g. the Reitmeisterhaus opposite Daensstraße coming from Gressenich). . But also street names like "Im Hammer", "Joaswerk" or "Hüttensiefen" recall the former activity of the Reitmeister. The basis of the forge trade was the water power of the Wehe (to operate the hammer mills, bellows and stamping mills) as well as the wooded surroundings (coal woods) and last but not least, the deposits of neighboring iron ore.

  • A detour is not really worth it. The paths all around offer no prospects. Everywhere only forest.
