  • For hiking enthusiasts the ideal location, it is a treat for the soul. But also sailors, anglers and campers come to the Edersee. At the time, very little water in the Lake is and you can see where houses once stood.

  • big dam, impressive to walk. especially by the story behind bombarde ring and reconstruction. dam is well maintained, just like the buildings next to it. beautiful wooded area, beautiful view. Nice to walk over them, but then you have it seen. After the dam, we have visited the Zoo and from there is the dam view even more beautiful and you can see even better how great this actually is.
