Klingnauer Uferweg

The round tour leads on a dam wall along the Stausee (reservoir). Thanks to its elevated position, the route offers breathtaking views with the sky seeming close enough to touch.
The completely surfaced path makes it easy to circuit the lake and is surrounded by alternately rugged and lush scenery. There are benches sited at regular intervals along the edge of the path and in Kleindöttingen it's well worth spending time at the spacious picnic spot.

The region has achieved international renown as a nature reserve for birds and so even non-bird watchers are recommended to take binoculars. Around 200 different species of birds can be observed throughout the year. In any event, a visit to the Aargauer bird paradise is always well worthwhile.

The Klingnauer Stausee (reservoir) is the last point of the River Aare before it flows into the Rhine. The imposing power station is suitably impressive. Thanks to the elevation of the circular route on the dam wall, the extensive views over the sparking water and the whole route offer everything you could wish for.
