This area is a very good Place when spending liesure time strolling with Family or Friends. It is quiet or peaceful, offers beautiful Landscape of forest for Walking or jogging or other sports, water/bay for Swimming, or boating or picknicking in boat, or just catching fish through lines, bridges for strolling , Gardens or sort of Parks where one can play or just relax. One can drive around in this 20 km man-made lake. In general it has its natures Beauty. Aside this area has a history to portray during the second world war, the bombing of the Damm from the britisch army breaking the Bridge hence overfloating the nearby villages. Of course there are also Restaurants and Icecoffees. Here is for exploring Nature, Sports and recalling History.

We were intrigued by this dam dating from the early 20th century (1908-1913). It is sadly famous because it was the scene of a war-time tragedy, as is explained on large on-site information panels: the dam was bombed in the night of 16 to 17 May 1943 by the British and more than 1500 people lost their lives in the ensuing flood wave, many of whom were foreign forced labourers. Four months later, the dam was operational again. From Soest’s bus station (‘Bustreff Hansaplatz’) bus C4 took us to the village of Günne in about 25 minutes. The stop ‘Günne Möhnestrasse’ leaves you next to the footpath leading to the dam. We took the next stop and started walking along the opposite shore of the low basin. At the end, there are stairs to the 40 metres high crest of the long dam and stairs back down again after 600 metres. Although there is a parapet wall, people with fear of heights or vertigo might not feel comfortable up there. Going up is not a must, there are good views from below, looking up.The whole tour took us about an hour, walking at a leisurely pace. The Tourist Office in Soest provided us with a handy free map (‘Möhnsee’) showing the whole lake area, even the boat routes in the high basin. Already in former times people used the lake for recreational purposes and it still is a pleasant area. There are three Tripadvisor reviews for this site, showing the same pictures: ‘Mohnetalsperre’ (48 reviews), ‘Mohnesee Staumauer’ (66 reviews) and ‘Mohnesee Dam’ (109 Reviews). None is spelled right. As there is an ‘Umlaut’ in German ‘Möhne’ should be spelled ‘Moehne’ in English.
