    The flood retention basin Herrenbach (also called Herrenbachstausee) is located in the district of Göppingen. It is located in the eastern part of the Schurwald near Adelberg and Schorndorf-Unterberken. It is operated by the water association Fils - like the flood retention basin Christental and Simonsbachtal. The flood retention basin was created in the 1970s after repeated flooding in Herrenbachtal. The 22 m high and 220 m long dam of earth material is constantly dammed to a part. He has a Vorsperre, which is separated by a Vordamm of the main barrier. The reservoir also serves the low water increase of the fils. The lake has become a popular recreational area for hikers and walkers due to its scenic location. The water surface is not used for recreational purposes, only as angling waters.

    Nice hiking trails along the lake. You can also hike off the beaten track and come back to the lake again and again.

    There is a great loop around the lake here. The path is wide and easy to walk.

    There is an approx. 3 km long forest adventure path around the lake, which is especially made for children and families. Very nicely designed and very varied.

    A cosy, shady or sunny (depending on preference), no-fuss place to have a beer and take a break and chat with friends.

    The flood retention basin created in the 1970s is in an extremely idyllic location and is densely forested all around. The lake itself may not be used for tourism, e.g. not permitted, but small highlights have been lovingly built into the circular lake trail: small rest areas and seating areas/benches in places with a panoramic view, small detours directly to the lake shore... It's particularly nice that children have been thought of. For example, they can discover animal tracks on a "game trail", there is a woodpecker tree where it is explained how woodpeckers make their tree hollows, etc... And the "furnishings" - from the benches to the explanation boards - are of high quality (optically and practically). and sustainable, you rarely see that consistently!
