Between 1908 and 1913, the Möhne dam was built in Günne. This created the Möhne Reservoir, whose main task is to provide water for the industrial area of the Ruhr.
Lake Möhne is a European bird sanctuary.
In the stony areas of the reservoir banks there are large beds of zebra mussel, an important food source for diving ducks and Coot.
Tips and hintsA visit to the regional exhibition of the landscape information centre Landschaftsinformationszentrums Möhnesee e.V. in Günne is especially recommendable.
A lake cruise in the catamaran of the Möhneseeschifffahrt (from Easter to October) is also worthwhile.
You could also visit the nearby Kleiberg pastureland nature reserve in Büecke.
Getting thereYou can reach the Möhnesee via the B 229 in the village of Delecke. Arriving from Neheim, you reach the lake via the K 8 in the village of Günne.
