Lake Möhne

600_9647-s_wThis artificial lake was built in 1913. It’s a huge artificial lake build for stabilizing the water supply. This birthday was celebrated with an illumination. As a continuation of my last weeks post, I show the photos taken in the afternoon, now.

The photo on the left only shows the overfill basin. The track around the water is about 2 kilometers. On the other side of the dam, there is a huge water reservoir. That area is used for watersports and excursion boats go on it. It’s a great local recreation area.

The only photo not taken at this side of the dam, is the one with the restaurant and the sailboat haven. Many people came each weekend from the big cities nearby to have a nice day here.

Take care.
