    The Nidda Reservoir - in the summer a dream for hikers, skaters and cyclists. The great snack bar on the banks of the reservoir invites you to take a break. Here you should definitely try Leberkäs with fried eggs and homemade potato salad.

    The dam will be completely renovated this year, ie the sea side of the dam, which consists of an asphalt waterproofing, will be completely renewed. After more than 47 years after the completion of the dam, it was time to fundamentally renew the entire surface. But that also means that there will be no bathing at Niddastausee this year.

    Very nice tour along the Nidda. The view of the lake is the reward for the last climb.

    The reservoir is conveniently located for many tours in the western Vogelsberg
