    The Urfttalsperre was already built from 1900 to 1905. It dams the Urft to the then largest European reservoir. On the side of the wall to the west there is a pier, from which the electric boats of the Rursee-Schipffahrt operate.

    When you consider what funds were available at that time and what was done with it.

    The Urfttalsperre in the northern Eifel is a 58.5 m high, 226 m long and built from 1900 to 1905 dam in the southwestern part of the North Rhine-Westphalian district Euskirchen, which dammed the Urft to 2.16 km ² Urft Reservoir (Urftsee).
    Its dam wall and the Urft reservoir, which at that time was the largest European artificial lake, belong since 1993 to the water association Eifel-Rur.

    The best view is from the lookout point in the direction of Wollseifen ..

    Just great what was around 1900 so everything was built. A great spectacle is when the dam overflows and the water rushes down the cascades.
