    Hasper Dam.
    there is nowhere to get to the water, as fences shut off the shore.

    Striking at the Haspertalsperre are the two towers, each at the end of the dam and the beautiful Art Nouveau parapet. The towers were centered before the renovation and were implemented as part of a renovation in the early 1990s to the outside. Today, two hand wheels are reminiscent of their old position.

    The Hasper dam has been in operation since 1904 and serves to provide drinking water for the city of Hagen. Therefore, unauthorized persons are not allowed to go directly to the water. The dam dams the Hasper brook and is one of 14 dams of the river system of the Ruhr.

    The Wandering Marathon had lost its horror at the sight of the "curved gravity dam from quarry stone masonry" of the Haspertalsperre. Half of the half was done. From here it was only about 11 kilometers to the courtyard of the organizing travel company in Hagen.

    The Hasper dam or Haspertalsperre is a dam that was built from 1901 to 1904 to plans by Otto Intze by the city of Haspe (now district of Hagen) in the Ruhr area (North Rhine-Westphalia) for drinking water. It is one of 14 dams in the river system of the Ruhr. The inauguration took place on October 11, 1904.The dam wall of the Haspertalsperre is a curved gravity dam made of quarry stone masonry according to the Intze principle. The jammed water is the Hasper brook. The Haspertalsperre has a pre-basin, the Schöpplenberger pond.In the years 1991 to 1994, the dam was renovated and reinforced with a superior sealing shell. She was also increased by 40 cm. It belongs to the Mark-E Aktiengesellschaft.The two turrets of the dam were originally located in the middle, but have now been moved outward to the wall end. In the original locations, two steering wheels are reminiscent of the towers. There is also a circa five kilometer round trail around the dam.Originally located near the dam was the breakpoint Hasper dam of the Kleinbahn Haspe-Voerde-Breckerfeld, later tram line 11, which was often the starting point for walks around the dam. Today, the so-called Plessen Viaduct recalls the narrow gauge railway, which was used to cross the valley. The later bus traffic to the dam was set on May 22, 1977, so that the lock is now only accessible on foot or by car.

    Nice place to rest, also wonderful for jogging or a short Sunday lap with the family. At the beginning of the Hasper dam is the Gasthaus Plessen with a large, delicious selection of drinks and food / cakes. Attention ! The parking lot for hikers in front of the dam is chargeable.

    Although there is no access to the water, the Haspertalsperre is worth a visit. Great Umurundungsmöglichkeit surrounded by beautiful nature. The paths are just and easily accessible.

    Im Dreieck zwischen Hagen, Ennepetal und Breckerfeld und auf dem Gebiet der ehemals eigenständigen Stadt Haspe liegt die Hasper-Talsperre versteckt in einem beschaulichen Tal. Die Talsperre staut den Hasperbach zu einem etwa 19 Hektar großen Stausee auf und dient vor allem der Abflussregulierung und Trinkwasserversorgung. Seinerzeit wuchs der Bedarf an Trink- und Brauchwasser insbesondere für die wachsende Einwohnerzahl und Industrie enorm an. Dagegen sorgten wiederkehrend Hochwasser für Probleme. Etwa 30 Meter hoch ist die 1904 eingeweihte Staumauer und hat eine Länge von ca. 260 Metern. Besonders markant sind die beiden runden Türmchen an den Enden und die Jugendstil-Brüstung. Diese standen ursprünglich beide etwas mittiger und wurden im Zuge einer Talsperren-Sanierung Anfang der 1990er Jahre umgesetzt. An ihrer alten Stelle befinden sich zwei Handräder als Erinnerung. Am nördlichen Talsperren-Ende fließt Hochwasser geräuschvoll in einen Überlauf und über zahlreiche Kaskaden zum Talgrund. Die Pläne des Staudamms stammen vom bekannten Architekten Otto Intze (1843-1904), der neben Talsperren auch Wassertürme konzipierte. Ein Intze-Wasserturm liegt gar nicht so weit entfernt von hier im ehemaligen Bahnbetriebswerk Dahlhausen und dem heutigen Eisenbahnmuseum Bochum und kann dort besichtigt werden.Ein etwa 3,5 Kilometer langer Rundweg führt über die Mauerkrone und um den kompletten See, der bequem innerhalb einer guten Stunde umrundet werden kann. Genutzt wird der Weg vielfach auch von Radfahrern und Joggern. Durch die Nutzung für das Trinkwasser ist die Freizeitnutzung am Wasser allerdings eingeschränkt. Der See ist eingezäunt und kann nicht für Schwimmen, Strandbaden oder Tauchen genutzt werden. An vielen Stellen fließen kleine Bäche plätschernd in den See, Bänke laden an vielen Stellen zu einer Rast mit Blick auf den See und die bewaldeten Berghänge ein. Besonders gerne genutzt werden die der Sonne zugewandten Bänke am Hochwasserüberlauf im Norden, wo das Wasser geräuschvoll und beruhigend über die Betonkante fließt.

    Nice atmosphere, unfortunately no access to the water, so disappointing on hot days.
