    The Sengetalsperre is one of the oldest drinking water reservoirs in the country, so you can not enter the shore. For this reason, the trail is circled above the dam and offers always great views of the water.

    The view from and to the dam is really worthwhile and is definitely worth the "arrival".

    The Sengbachtalsperre, one of the oldest drinking water reservoirs in Germany, was inaugurated in 1903. It consists of a main pool and a forecourt. The huge quarry stone barrier wall of the main basin has a radius of curvature of 150 meters and can hold 2.8 million cubic meters of water. Measured from the foundation level, it is 43 meters high, 36 meters thick at the bottom and five meters at the top. The top of the wall is 178 meters long and a footpath leads over it. The elongated reservoir is between 100 and 180 meters wide, 2.4 kilometers long and up to 36 meters deep.

    A beautiful view and area.
    Invites you to linger.
    Worth a look, especially when it's frosty.
