    The Aggertalsperre is a great highlight in the region. Definitely worth a visit. Of course, depending on the size, the dam itself is also impressive. I can recommend to drive parts of the dam around it, as it is used in many ways (divers, swimmers, cyclists, hikers) and there is so much to see. The crossing of the dam is of course an essential building block of.

    historyIn order to cover the constantly increasing energy requirements and to prevent the flood damage occurring annually, the first considerations were made in 1900 to 1904 for the construction of a dam in the course of the Agger above Dümmlinghausen. Contrary to the original intention to build a weight stone wall, the decision was made to use a cast concrete wall for rational reasons. At peak times, up to 1,600 workers were employed on the construction site.The standard-gauge tram and goods traffic route of the Gummersbacher Kleinbahnen to Dummlinghausen on Aggertalstrasse was used to transport material and workers, and the workers in Derschlag switched from the Aggertalbahn.On October 10, 1928, the pouring boom demolished one of the two casting towers, killing four workers due to falling parts. Towards the end of the construction period, the contracting construction company declared bankruptcy; the remaining work was carried out by local companies. The trial jam began on December 24, 1928, which had to be stopped at the beginning of September 1929 due to leaks and the resulting sealing work. After the sealing work had been completed, the damming could be started on October 18, 1929. [2]
