    The Agger dam is of course the most impressive dam in the region and has a capacity of 20.5 million cubic meters of water.
    It's great to cycle along the sides and see the variety of uses. Boats, divers, anglers, swimmers. Everything. In places, the water looks like in the South Sea and there are flat edges, where established bathing areas have emerged.
