After about 6 years of construction finished in 1973. Before, about 450 residents were resettled from a dozen villages. The water surface is about 220 ha and is located in the nature reserve. There are many ways to drive.
A trip here I can only recommend. The view is world class and you can also go for a ride around the dam. To mention is here also the island from the Krombacher advertising is also in the Wiehltalsperre.
