Mountain Biking Highlight
Hochablass Lechwehr station 17 of the Augsburg water system
The high drain has been an integral part of Augsburg's hydropower use for over 750 years. This is where most of the channels originate. The current appearance roughly corresponds to the condition from 1912

More recently, Stadtwerke Augsburg integrated a hydropower plant into the weir. The landmark of the Hochablasse is its bell tower. Two stone figures at the western end of the dam bridge demonstrate the importance of the river as a driving force for mill wheels and turbines as well as the importance of the rafting, which was still important in 1912.
