    A very beautiful lake. The dam is around 183 meters long and the lake is around 20 meters deep. Nowadays it is used for recreation and as a water reservoir.

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

    There are bathing areas at:
    - DLRG station
    - campsite
    - On the Linge

    The dam is easy to circumnavigate with approx. 5 km along the shore. A fish trail there provides detailed information about life under the surface of the water.

    The Panoramasteig of the Bergisches Wanderland invites you to go hiking, as well as other great hiking trails that lead directly past the dam.

    Arrival by public transport:
    E.g. from Köln Hbf (platform 10) with the regional train RB25 in the direction of Meinerzhagen
    Stop: Marienheide
    Continue by bus 336 from Marienheide Bf towards: Lennep Bahnhof, Remscheid
    Low-floor vehicle
    Stop: Rüggeberg, Marienheide
    Continue on foot for approx. 18 minutes to Marienheide, Linger Straße 53

    Built in the years 1897 to 1899, the Lingesetalsperre is one of the oldest reservoirs owned by the Wupperverbandes. It is a small, manageable lake that was originally used for river regulation and service water supply. Today it serves primarily the leisure pleasure, the flood protection and the low water elevation. The dammed river is the Lingese, a tributary of the Wipper. The Lingese is border river between Kierspe in the Sauerland and Marienheide in the Oberbergischer Kreis.

    The Lingese dam dams the river Lingese near the town Marienheide in the southeast of North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 1899, the dam is already in operation as a service water dam. Today, the Lingese dam primarily serves recreational pleasure. It is visited annually by many thousands of people who seek and find relaxation in the beautiful landscape. In 2011, three swimming pools were set up by the Wupperverband on the Lingese dam: Badesstelle1: DLRG, bathing area 2: camping site, bathing area 3: Linge.

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