    Relatively short, but nevertheless worth seeing dam.

    In summer / high season also a boat rental has opened. Then you can also explore the reservoir.

    Parking is available on both sides of the dam.

    Small, but quite remarkable dam.

    Parking is available on both sides of the dam. From there you can explore the castle Reinhardstein and the valley of the Warche very well / hike.

    The Robertville dam and associated hydraulic and electro-hydraulic installations were built on the basis of a 1924 state decree of the Kingdom of Belgium.
    The dam is located on the bottom of the municipality of Weismes below Ovifat and Robertville. On a hill warcheabwärts, 800 m walk from the dam, you will find the castle Reinhardstein.
    The construction was only started in December 1925 by the power distribution company SERMA (later Electrabel). The construction period was three years. During this time, the dam was completed. Also at this time, with a descent of 53 m, a 4.5 km long tunnel was built, followed by a pressure line of 1 km. Here is located at an altitude of 443 m a widely visible reservoir. From here, the water falls 100 m deep in a pressure line to the Bévercé power plant.
    The artificial lake has an area of 67 ha and a capacity of 7 676 000 m³. The dam has a height of 54.50 meters and a length of 182 meters. The road from Robertville to Malmedy leads over the dam. The width of the dam at the crown is 4 meters. The width at the foot of the wall is 38 meters, which means that the wall can be qualified as a gravity dam. There is an overflow on the south bank. The main spool at the outlet of the dam has a diameter of 1.8 meters with a maximum flow of 25 m³ / h.
    Tourist use
    South of the center Robertville is located on a promontory a tourist infrastructure with swimming pool and campsite. Next to the dam is a boat rental. Since the reservoir is used for drinking water, no motor boats are allowed.
    The hiking trails around the reservoir are integrated into the dense network of routes in eastern Belgium. Since 2007, there is the trail WarcheTour which runs between the reservoir Bütgenbach and Robertville.

    The dam is located near the castle Reinhardstein. Directly at the dam is a parking lot. You can also enjoy a typical Belgian beer at the kiosk there.
