Ecker Dam - Photo by Julian

The Ecker Dam is a massive gravity dam that was completed in the early 1940s. The dam's reservoir collects the waters of the Ecker river and mainly serves for drinking water supply. As a bonus the reservoir has amazing colours due to the rivers flowing down from the mountains in Harz National Park. Though not accessible by car, the Ecker Dam and the circular trail around its reservoir are popular destinations for daytrippers. The dam wall is checkpoint no. 1 in the Harzer Wandernadel hiking trail network (https://www.harzer-wandernadel.de/). (Altenau, Germany)
