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.
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.
