    The Diestellochdamm is an artificially built dam and spans a deep valley cut. Here you hike above the valley and can enjoy the beautiful view. An information board in the middle of the dam provides information about the history of its origins.

    Very impressive, artificially created structure with the high embankment that supports the canal. Nice view of the valley basin at treetop height.

    Great structural achievement, considering the time it was built and the resources and tools available for the construction.
