Tips

    The Sengbachtalsperre (popularly also called "Solinger dam") is located in a secluded side valley of the Wupper not far from castle Burg, between the Solingen district Höhrath and Glüder. The water reservoir located in the midst of green forests supplies the inhabitants of the city of Solingen with drinking water. For this reason, the building is popularly usually referred to only as Solinger dam.

    The trail around the dam is forested. The trees often give a clear view of the water

    If you want to leave the main path around the dam, the trails around the dam can be committed

    "... The Sengbachtalsperre is one of the oldest German drinking water reservoirs. The dam was built between 1900 and 1903 according to the Intze principle and consists of a main basin and a fore basin.
    The successful pioneer of German dam construction was commissioned with the construction of the facility: Professor Dr. Otto Intze.
    The barrage made of Lenneschiefer, greywacke and trass mortar was inaugurated on May 28, 1903.
    The wall of the main basin measures 43 m from the base of the foundation, the top of the wall is 178 meters long. The width of the wall is 36.6 m at the bottom and 5 m at the top. The heavyweight wall with a radius of curvature of 150 m retains around 2.8 million m³ of water when it is fully flooded. The maximum water depth is 36.0 m with a water surface of around 200,000 m².
    The reservoir, which extends mainly in a north-west-south-east direction, is between 100 m and 180 m wide and has a length of approx. 2.4 km. ... "
