Bike Touring Highlight
On Biggesee, cyclists can look forward to beautiful paths and great infrastructure. On a tour around the reservoir, the waters are always enchanting with their picturesque sights - blue waters, surrounded by lovely hills covered with green forests.
In summer, the lake also scores with countless bathing places, where you can take a break and jump into the cool water. From secluded coves on free beaches to beach resorts you can find everything.

The Biggedamm was built in the 1950s and 60s and dams up the Bigge to the huge Biggesee. The dam is very impressive and has a height of over 50 meters. In addition to power generation, the main task is to regulate the water level in winter in order to protect the lower regions along the Lenne and the Ruhr from flooding. You have a particularly beautiful view over the dam and the lake from the Skywalk Biggeblick on the slope directly east of the lake.
