Tips

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

    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 Sengbachtalsperre is not far from Burg Castle 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 reservoirs in Germany. To this day, it supplies the people who live in Solingen Drinking water.
    The dam wall is 43 meters high, 36 meters at the bottom and five meters thick at the top. The top of the wall is 178 meters long, a footpath leads over it.
    A circular route of about ten kilometers 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 landscape with its mountain ranges and stream valleys always opens up beautiful views of the water. ..."

    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.

    The barrier - the barrier structureThe dam in the south of Solingen is one of the oldest drinking water dams in Germany. It was inaugurated in 1903. In the meantime, it supplies all parts of the city of blades with the increasingly valuable water. The huge quarry stone barrier wall (43 meters high above the foundation level, 178 meters long) can hold around three million cubic meters of water.
