    The Lingese dam is one of the oldest dams of the Wupperverband and today offers water sports of all kinds.

    Bathing areas are located at:
    - DLRG-Station
    - Camping
    - At the Linge

    The dam is to circumnavigate with about 5 km along the shore. There, a fish trail provides detailed information about life beneath the surface of the water.

    For hiking invites, among other things, the panoramic pebble of the mountain hiking country, as well as other great trails lead directly past the dam.

    Arrival by public transport:
    e.g. From Cologne central station (platform 10) take the regional train RB25 direction Meinerzhagen
    Stop: Marienheide
    Continue by bus 336 from Marienheide Bf direction: Lennep Bahnhof, Remscheid
    Low-floor vehicle
    Stop: Rüggeberg, Marienheide
    Continue on foot about 18 minutes to Marienheide, Linger Straße 53

    On winter days it is something special to make the loop around the Lingese dam, past the sleepy campsites.
