Hike over the Sperberhaier Damm aqueduct, one of the core parts of the Upper Harz water Management System. Restaurants invite you to take a break both at the start and at the end.
The Sperberhaier Damm aqueduct is the mightiest structure of the Upper Harz Water Management System and the core of the dam ditch system named after it. The 940 m long and 16 m high aqueduct directs the water over a depression at the sparrow shark to the Clausthal plateau. With all the foothills that reach up to the Brockenfeld, the Dammgraben system has a length of almost 50 km. From its "cradle" below Torfhaus to the Oberen Hausherzberger Teich pond near Clausthal-Zellerfeld, the 20 km long ditch only loses 60 m in height.
