    A walk from Schloss Burg, over the Dietrichttempel to the dam wall, is very easy to walk and there is a lot to see. The hike can be extended by simply spinning a lap around the dam itself.

    The Sengbachtalsperre is a drinking water dam in Solingen. It is located in a secluded side valley of the Wupper not far from Castle Burg, between the Solingen local layers Höhrath and Glüder. The water reservoir located between forests supplies the inhabitants of the city of Solingen with drinking water. For this reason, the building is usually called in the vernacular only "Solinger dam". At times, it was also referred to as "Senkbach-Thalsperre".

    The overflow path of the dam really impressed me on the valley side! Stair-like, only in huge dimensions. Simply an amazing eye-catcher!

    A beautiful, old dam wall where you can see the craftsmanship of yesteryear very well.

    For short hikes about 3 hours leisurely hike a bit mountainous but well laid out paths so prams suitable. In this way there is also a Diederichstempel a white boulder with a table erected next to it the rock was so named and the story.

    Deep forests, beautiful views - the Sengbach dam is not far from Castle Burg in a secluded side valley of the Wupper, surrounded by dense forests. It was built in 1903 and is one of the oldest drinking water storage tanks in Germany. To this day, it provides the people who live in Solingen with drinking water.
    The dam is 43 meters high, 36 meters below and five meters above. The wall crown is 178 meters long, a footpath leads over.
    An approximately ten kilometer long circular route leads around the reservoir, which is between 100 and 180 meters wide, around two and a half kilometers long and up to 36 meters deep. The path through the low mountain range with its ridges and brook valleys always opens up beautiful views of the water.
    The dam can be reached via the Solingen villages of Glüder. Route boards in Unterburg (Wupper) and Oberburg (Schloss Burg) also provide information about hiking opportunities.
