It is a small, manageable lake that was originally used for river regulation and service water supply. Today it serves primarily the leisure pleasure, the flood protection and the low water elevation. The dammed river is the Lingese, a tributary of the Wipper. The Lingese is border river between Kierspe in the Sauerland and Marienheide in the Oberbergischer Kreis.

    In good weather, not as crowded as the Brucher dam for a long time. In the summer you have to be careful on some days, that you do not cross over the numerous young frogs, which cross the paths in droves. (Quack!)

    I found the Brucher dam on site more exciting, but if I think about it again, it's actually unfair. Both reservoirs have similarly beautiful and comparable dams of the old type. The Lingsetalsperre means to make a small detour from the railway route (where probably most will come long), but I thought it was okay.

    Nice little dam. Suitable for children, because the shore begins quite flat.

    4/5 asphalt
    1/5 dirt road
    Very nice route, very few sections with traffic.
    E-bike is an advantage.
    In Kierspe there is food.
