Tips

  • KISS

    Unfortunately, the entire lake is fenced. With good luck, a gate is opened and you can get down to the water. At the upper basin is a small lake with fish ladder, this is not fenced and you can directly to the water.

    From here you have a great view of the hotel on the lake.

    Nice reservoir that you can walk around.
    The Glems pumped storage plant, south of Metzingen near Glems, was built between 1962 and 1964 by what was then the Technical Works of the City of Stuttgart. From 1997 it belonged to Neckarwerke Stuttgart, now - since October 2003 - to EnBW Kraftwerke AG. The pumped storage plant has an output of 90 MW, which is obtained from two Francis turbines of 45 MW each. It is connected to the high-voltage network of the distribution network operator Netze BW via the Metzingen switchgear via a two-circuit 110 kV three-phase line.

    The reservoir is beautifully nestled below the Swabian Alb near Metzingen-Glems.
