    The Art Nouveau hydroelectric power plant is located in Heimbach and was put into operation in 1905.
    The hydroelectric power station draws its water from the Urft dam via the Kermeterstollen, which merges into two pressure pipes 110 m above the power plant.

    The power station is still in operation and can be visited by appointment.

    In any case, this hydroelectric power plant is worth seeing. It is one of the few industrial buildings in Art Nouveau style. It is still in operation today and can be visited.

    The power plant is beautifully lit at night! The visit is well worth it in the evening in any case.

    Nice power plant in the Art Nouveau style, but is not driven by the Rur, but about the Kermeterstollen about 70m further above and fed by the Urfttalsperre.

    The Heimbacher reservoir can be used all year round. Canoeing on the almost stagnant water are pure relaxation. The water quality is excellent. The shore landscapes, which show themselves in ever changing colors as the seasons change, are varied. At a reasonable distance, swans and other waterfowl can be observed. The widely visible Art Nouveau hydroelectric power station built in 1904 can also be visited.

    Nice, well-kept building. Interesting, if unusual, is the Art Nouveau construction
