Tips

  • Moin Weite Welt (Markus)

    At the secluded Eckertalsperre is usually not much going on, because the next parking lot is far away. Previously, the German-German border ran through the middle of the dam. A landmark on the dam still reminds of it today.

    Ecker reservoir round is always worthwhile (even if the Pionierweg is closed for MTB)

    From the dam of the Eckertalsperre you have an excellent view over the lake. On the dam you can still see the border post of the German division. This border ran right through the Eckertalsperre, which contributes to the drinking water supply.

    The Eckerstausee is just beautiful. On the side with the root path one has particularly beautiful views over the lake. It is worth it!

    Especially from the side with the root track you get a little closer to the lake and has a gorgeous view.
