    Even if the Neyetalsperre purely serves as a drinking water reservoir and you are not allowed to swim in it, you can wander around it wonderful. The riverside path leads to 11 km and about 3 hours around the water. It usually runs very close to the water and through the forest with plenty of rest and no hectic swimming in the summer. At dawn you can also see a very special spectacle: the flight of bats. The Neyetalsperre is known as a popular hunting grounds for water bats and noctules.

    The dam was built in the years 1905 to 1908 as drinking water dam by the city of Remscheid. Several stone tools from the Stone Age were found.

    The capacity is six million cubic meters. The brook Neye is stowed. The concrete dam is a curved gravity dam made of quarry stone masonry according to the Intze principle.

    The reservoir can be hiked in about three hours. The paths run along the water and lead exclusively through the forest. The shortest way to circle the dam is about 11 miles long and is very popular with joggers and walkers. Nearby are the larger Bevertalsperre and the small Schevelinger or Silbertalsperre. From the Silbertalsperre an underground tunnel leads to the Neyetalsperre and from there to Bevertalsperre, known as the Bever Block. Built as a drinking water dam and used for many years dam is operated since 2004 as a service water dam. Only in acute water scarcity should it be taken again drinking water.

    Today the EWR GmbH, the energy subsidiary of Stadtwerke Remscheid GmbH, owner of the Neyetalsperre, the management is the responsibility of the Wupperverband.

    Nice little dam. Little opportunity for a rest. Unfortunately, no toilets. For walking disabled or wheelchairs not suitable at all. The water is as good as not at all. But still nice round with lots of forest and shade. For 2 hours recovery really good

    The Bergisch rambles are wonderful rounds along the Bergische Weg, which in its entirety is a route hike. There are always beautiful views, no matter what the weather. Always worthwhile

    The dam of the Neyetalsperre lies in the west of the water. It is walkable and can be very well integrated into a tour around the beautifully situated dam. For this you have to start about 3 to 3.5 hours.

    It's beautiful to walk on the water all the time. The trees provide plenty of shade in hot weather. In the inn Neyetalsperre you can rest very well.
