    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.
