    On the map here is a lake marked, - but it is just there only at high tide! On the stairs of the dam you can make good rest.

    Well, it is certainly not a real highlight - but the way leads past here.

    From here, hike through the natural Achtobel and Maria im Stein. Especially in summer on warm days because the path is always by the stream and in the shade of the trees.

    Behind the dam lies a green valley with grass and trees, with the small Salemer Aach in between.
    The catchment area of 287 square kilometers fills the valley quickly when it rains. Record in July 2021: almost 13 meters of water at the dam. Drainage rate at the top: 8500 liters / second. The emergency overflow at the edge of the dam has never been needed.
