    The Sengbachtalsperre is not far from Burg Castle in a secluded side valley of the Wupper, surrounded by dense forests. It was built in 1903 and is one of the oldest drinking water reservoirs in Germany. To this day, it supplies the people who live in Solingen with drinking water.The dam is 43 meters high, 36 meters at the bottom and five meters thick at the top. The top of the wall is 178 meters long and a footpath leads over it.An approximately ten kilometer long circular path leads around the reservoir, which is between 100 and 180 meters wide, around two and a half kilometers long and up to 36 meters deep. The path through the low mountain range with its mountain ranges and stream valleys offers beautiful views of the water again and again.The dam can be reached via the Solingen villages of Glüder. Route boards in Unterburg (Wupper) and Oberburg (Burg Castle) provide information about hiking opportunities.
