Tips

  • Maren Ingrid

    The Schwarzenbachtalsperre is the most important building of the pumped storage power plant Rudolf-Fettweis-Werk. The dam was completed in 1926 and collects the water on the eastern slope of the precipitous main ridge of the northern Black Forest. In addition, the water is pumped into the dam by the Murg, as the system serves to balance the load in the energy supply.

    The gravity dam is 400 meters long and 65 meters high. The lake is over two kilometers long.

    The view from the lakeside path to the lake is already overgrown. From this bank you have a good view of the lake.

    Large dam that can easily be walked around or by MTB, approx. 7 KM. Of course, it primarily serves to generate electricity from ENBW. The view of the dam is interesting.

    The Schwarzenbachtalsperre near Forbach in the northern Black Forest is the most important structure of the Rudolf-Fettweis-Werk pumped storage power plant. The operator of the dam, which was completed in 1926 and located in a side valley of the Murg valley, is EnBW Kraftwerke AG. If there is an excess of electricity generation (mainly at night), water is pumped from the lower Murgtalsperre in Kirschbaumwasen, via the power house in Forbach, into the Schwarzenbachtalsperre. If there is a lack of energy, the water from the reservoir is fed to the Forbach compensation basin to generate electricity to cover peak loads via the water turbines (source Wikipedia).

    Green electricity is produced here.
    People who are looking for relaxation always walk here. The major highlights of the northern Black Forest are not far from here.

    Impressive architecture. Especially at the bottom of the dam.
