WALDHEIM – Talsperre Kriebstein

Before the Kriebstein Dam was built, the River nearer the Czech border was quite rough and dangerous for raftsmen travelling along the river. They were more than happy to arrive safely at Kriebstein Castle, as they knew from here on, the River was much calmer. These days, the River has been tamed and fills the Kriebstein reservoir at Kriebstein. The Kriebstein Green Belt Recreation Area is settled around the Kriebstein reservoir which is 9 kilometres long and covers an area of about 132 hectars. It stretches from the Kriebstein Dam at Kriebstein where the water of the river Zschopau is backed up to Lauenhain-Ringethal. The biggest width of the reservoir is 300 metres.The volume of the backed up water is 11,3 billion cubic metres. The Kriebstein reservoir is a fantastic area for campers, canoeists and for those who like going on boat tours. But it’s also an appropriate area for people who like walking and watching wildlife. The central place of that recreation area is Kriebstein with the Kriebstein Dam and the Kriebstein Castle.
