    The fish ladder was completed in 2013 and replaced a dam from the 1960s. It should allow fish to overcome the height difference of 1.5 meters.

    Fish ladder, even with a counter, allows the fish to swim on. There is also a viewing platform with seating to rest and watch the fish.

    “... refreshed, we set off again. And soon we will reach the next highlight on the Nice Lakes premium hiking trail: the fish ladder. Large, thick boulders lie in the river and thus create a step-like opportunity for fish to ascend and descend the river ... "

    The fish ladder, also known as the fish ladder, is designed as a near-natural bottom slide. The bottom slide is designed like a 150 meter long ramp and overcomes a gradient of 1.10 meters along 15 stepped basins. The water basins are modeled by stones weighing 120-130 tons, which come from the quarries near Gummersbach. The stones are arranged so that they let some of the water through and keep the rest in the basin. In this way, quiet zones are created for aquatic organisms on their migration through the flowing water.(Matthias Wirtz-Amtling, LVR Department for Cultural Landscape Management, 2021)
