The water of the Hasselbach was used industrially at the site of today's Hasselbach reservoir early on. The first industrial development goes back to the year 1565 when a flour mill was built. Later, various other mills, furniture and sawmills and a system for generating electricity were built in the entire Hasselbachtal, which was in operation until 1928. Where the Hasselbach Reservoir is today, a paper mill was built in 1674, which later became a furniture factory and, after being expanded several times, produced it until 1965. After the factory was leveled in 1981, the Hasselbach reservoir was created in its current form and opened to the public on May 2nd, 1982. The reservoir has a water surface of 1.3 ha with a volume of 13,000 m³.
