    The lake is a flood retention basin of the Reichenbach. The location is absolutely idyllic and a stop is definitely worth it. There are a few benches on the bank to rest.

    The Reichenbach flood retention basin (also Reichenbachsee Spraitbach) is located near Spraitbach near Schwäbisch Gmünd in Baden-Württemberg in the Ostalb district.
    The dam is an earth dam and dams the Reichenbach, a tributary of the Lein, to a small permanent reservoir with a capacity of only 45,000 m³ and an area of 2.85 hectares. Most of the reservoir is only filled during floods.
    The flood retention basin belongs to the water association Kocher-Lein. This flood retention basin (HRB) was created - like ten other HRB along the Lein - by the water association Kocher-Lein. The construction of these flood retention basins is intended to reduce the risk of flooding in the Leintal on both sides and in the central Kocher valley. The reservoir is also used for local recreation.
