    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

    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.
