The astonishing dam was built only in 2 years, and that is almost 100 years ago - amazing! On the ``dry`` side of the dam we climb down and then up the ``hill``.

Aussichtsturm Unnenberg

Reviewed By Klaus F - Cologne, Germany

vom Ausgangspunkt Wanderparkplatz bei Dahl im Tal der Talbecke ist es eine schöne Wanderung steil hoch durch einen sauberen schönen Wald. Vom Aussichtsturm sieht man bis Köln - bei sonnigem Wetter ist der Platz ein typischer "Bikertreff" mit allem was dazugehört. Von dort zu Genkeltalsperre hinunter - sehr schöne Gegend ohne Autoverkehr - allerdings Trinkwasserreservoir deshalb Baden verboten.

Flugschule Flugluft.de

Reviewed By Christian W - Bergisch Gladbach, Germany

This is a real adventure for people without fear of heights. The gyrocopter is a mixture of an airplane and a helicopter. The gyrocopter has the advantages of both without the disadvantages. It starts and lands nearly like a helicopter. An engine failure doesn’t lead to a problem, the aircraft will descend slowly and land. The company “flugluft.de” located at the airfield of Meinerzhagen is offering trial flights with the gyrocopter of 30 or 45 minutes over the lovely countryside. You can even take over the stick and fly all the time. I did it and it was awesome.

Affen- und Vogelpark Eckenhagen

Reviewed By GrainVodka - Jodhpur, India

Park of Birds and Monkeys located on Reichshof – Eckenhagen, a little town close to Cologne, that’s a 70 km trip. Inaugurated in 1972, now has more than 1000 animals and it’s a paradise for children's 'cause most of animals do not stay in cages and a lot of beautiful birds fly over our heads. We can feed almost all the animals, like goats, otters and ostrich, but it’s important pay attention to the signs because they can’t eat everything. The park has a big area with aquatic toys, a vegetable garden, a game room, etc. They have two great restaurants and open every day including holidays.

Historische Brennerei Ronsahl

Reviewed By cyrcom - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Die ca 1870 erbaute alte Brennerei in Rönsahl bei Kierspe wird seid Jahren liebevoll wieder in stand gebracht. Im inneren findet man kleine Ausstellungen, vom Stadt historischen bis natürlich zur Geschichte der Brennerei selbst. Auch findet man eine ganz funktionierende eigenen Brennanlage die das Hauseigene "Rönsahler Landbier" produziert. Die Brennerei wird für diverse Veranstaltungen benutzt, und man sollte sich dafür beim Verein der Brennerei melden.
Wir fanden den Besuch interessant und würden hier gerne mal zu einer Veranstaltung wieder einkehren, dank der netten Ambiente.

Forum Gummersbach

Reviewed By effieshu - Silver Spring, Maryland

This is a clean new (about a year old in 2016) mall in the town of Gummersbach. It's a small little mall, but if you are in a pinch and need your mall fix, you can find most things here. The businesses and shop keepers are friendly and helpful. The food court offerings was fresh. There was even a handful of toddler/kiddy rides for the very young ones. Outside of the mall there are nearby cafes and a little water Fountain structure that little children play in to the backdrop of a church.

Kirche Lieberhausen

Reviewed By monika c - The Hague, The Netherlands

In the bunte Kirche in Lieberhausen we looked at the beautiful mediaeval mural paintings that are still very clear to see. The church is open every day, we were there on Good Friday and welcome to have a look and walk around. Especcially beautiful is the picture with the weighing scale. Almost all the walls are covered with these paintings, so well known in France but also to be seen in Germany. One is allowed to take pictures. When in this area, about 30 km east of Koln, take a detour to visit this church.

Eisenbahnmuseum

Reviewed By KlausB476 - Gummersbach, Germany

Modelleisenbahnromantik im Maßstab 1:1. Für ehemalige und angehende Eisenbahner ein unbedingtes MUSS man mal gesehen haben. Gastronomie leider nur extrem mäßig vorhanden. Clöchen auch schwierig aber gibt es während der Öffnungszeiten (zu denen muss man sich vorab im Web informieren). Ansonsten was die Eisenbahner die diese Raritäten zusammen getragen haben und noch auf die Schiene bringen hier leisten ist schier unglaublich. Da stecken so viele liebevolle Stunden der Restaurierung drin um Augen strahlen und Loks dampfen zu lassen. Nichts für Handicap People ohne kräftige Begleitung da unwegsames Bahngelände.
