    This diverse reservoir is recommended in every season. He or his environment also has a lot to offer for the kids.

    Lower reservoir of the Rur. Beautifully nestled between the hills of the Eifel.

    When the construction of the Urft dam began in 1900, no one could have known that it was also a decision to build the Obermaubach reservoir. The reservoir and the Urft dam are closely interwoven.
    The Rurthalsperrengesellschaft, which was founded to build the dam at Urft, had decided to finance the project, Heimbach a power plant - the "Art Nouveau power plant" - to build, which should be won electricity from hydropower. Through a tunnel through the Kermeter and a subsequent pressure line water from the Urftsee was steered with a steep slope on the turbines. Electricity as a young form of energy was a growth market during this time, and so the power plant was able to work in continuous operation.

    There it is very scenic and there are very good cake or food. But nice is the fish ladder at the dam. Just have a look and enjoy. Hikes in the surrounding area are also very nice. I like this area
