Tips

  • Landlinien

    Even if the Neyetalsperre serves purely as a drinking water reservoir and you are not allowed to swim in it, you can hike around it wonderfully. The riverside path leads around the body of water for eleven kilometers in around three hours. You usually run very close to the water and through the forest with a lot of peace and quiet and without hectic swimming in summer. A very special spectacle can also be observed here at dusk: the flight of bats. The Neyetalsperre is known as a popular hunting area for water bat and noctule bat.

    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.

    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

    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

    At this point there is a wonderful view of the barrier wall of the Neyetalsperre. Not far away, there is also a nice bench as a resting point to enjoy this beautiful view.

    The dam was built between 1905 and 1908 as a 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 dammed. The dam is a curved gravity dam made of rubble masonry based on the Intze principle.

    The reservoir can be hiked around in about three hours. The paths run directly along the water and lead exclusively through the forest. The shortest way to go around the dam is around eleven kilometers long and is very popular with joggers and walkers. The larger Bevertalsperre and the small Schevelinger or Silbertalsperre are very close by. An underground tunnel leads from the Silbertalsperre to the Neyetalsperre and from there to the Bevertalsperre, known as the Bever block. The reservoir, which was built as a drinking water reservoir and has been in use for many years, has been operated as a process water reservoir since 2004. Drinking water should only be taken from it again if there is an acute shortage of water.

    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.
