The municipality of Möhnesee was created on July 1, 1969 from the office of Körbecke . Many of the places belonging to the municipality have a long history. The northern part of today's municipality in the Soester Börde was settled early. But the hair strand can also look back on a long history of settlement. In contrast, the southern part with the Arnsberg Forest was and is only sparsely populated. The valley of the Möhne belonged to the county of Arnsberg in the Middle Ages . The counts gave a permanent house as a fief near Körbecke. In Körbecke there was a count's goge dish . With the county, the area came to Kurköln in 1368 . It was part of the Duchy of Westphalia until the beginning of the 19th century . The parish of Körbecke consisted of fifteen villages. At times it was controversial between Soest and Kurköln. The Körbecke court also formed an administrative unit outside the usual official constitution of the duchy . In terms of the church there were close ties to the city of Soest. So the St. Patrokli monastery had the right to appoint the pastor in Körbecke.

The Fulda Abbey owned properties in Berlingsen . The place Delecke was first mentioned in 1191. The Drüggelter Chapel is dated to the year 1150. The place Buecke belonged to the monastery Oelinghausen since 1210 . The monastery also owned property in Echtrop. However, this place is much older and is said to have been built around 800. Körbecke was first mentioned in writing in 987. The Körbeck parish church was built in the 18th century. But it goes back to older predecessors. The tower dates from around 1150.

The construction of the Möhnetalsperre between 1908 and 1912 was decisive for the development in today's municipality . In the center of the municipality of Körbecke, the largest stone bridge in Europe was built over the lake to the southern edge of Körbecker until it was destroyed by bombers in WWII in 1945. It was replaced by a pedestrian bridge in the 1960s.

The barrier wall of the Möhne dam is in the Günne district. After a long construction period, it was inaugurated on July 12, 1913, and destroyed by roll bombs in May 1943 . This triggered the Möhne disaster . In October of the same year, the barrier was able to start operating again.

Most of the settlement took place around the lake. Before the Möhne Reservoir was built, settlement was mostly in the river valley; With the construction of the barrier wall , many residents had to be relocated.

Especially since the municipal reorganization in 1969, there have been numerous infrastructural measures in the municipality, with the particular aim of promoting tourism.


Church of St. Elisabeth in Wamel

The population of the community Möhnesee is essentially Christian . The Roman Catholic faithful make up the largest proportion with 55% . The parishes have come together to form the parish of Jesus Christ Möhnesee and belong to the Hellweg deanery in the Archdiocese of Paderborn . Until the time after World War II, the Protestants were a tiny minority; however, they have now grown to 26%. They belong to the Soest parish of the Evangelical Church of Westphalia . 19% of the population do not belong to any or any other religious community.


The municipality Möhnesee was formed on July 1, 1969 on the basis of the law on the reorganization of the Soest district and parts of the Beckum district of June 24, 1969 from the following communities of the former Körbecke office:

  • Berlingsen
  • Roars
  • Büecke
  • Delecke (Möhnesee)
  • Really drop
  • Ellingsen

Culture and sights

The listed Drüggelter Chapel
"Altes Backhaus" in Delecke


There is no permanent theater stage in the municipality of Möhnesee. There are two theater associations that regularly stage comedies with amateur actors: In 1993, “Dai Hiewinger Theaterluie” was founded in the Hewingsen district. Rehearsals and performances currently take place every two years in the shooting hall of the local St. Hubertus shooting association.

In the district of Wamel, the village teacher Bernhard Reinold founded the amateur association Wamel in 1907. The amateur actors rehearse and play on the theater floor of the Hubertus-Schützenhalle in town. A new Schwank has been performed there every year since 1986.


Visitors to the Landscape Information Center (LIZ) in Günne can find out more about the landscape around the Möhnetalsperre and the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park in the building and on the adjoining outdoor area. So-called experience rooms invite you to explore and discover. In a restored machine mill near the reservoir of the dam, the Friends of the Landscape Information Center for Water and Forest Möhnesee e. V. set up an exhibition with financial help from the NRW Foundation, which clearly shows the visitor the nature of the Möhnese region.


The "Drüggelter tricks" are known beyond the borders of the municipality. Partly in the chapel, partly in the barn of the Schulte zu Drüggelte farm, concerts of classical music, jazz and world music take place alongside exhibitions by visual artists. The festival advertises with the title “Westphalia's small festival”. Chamber concerts also take place regularly in the chapel.


In the municipality of Möhnesee, 28 buildings and other listed objects are entered in the list of monuments. There are also four archaeological monuments.

Möhne reservoir

The central structure of the Möhnesee is the dam, which was built between 1908 and 1913. The dam has a capacity of around 134.5 million m³ of water and is used to increase the low water.

Churches and chapels

The Sankt-Pankratius parish church in Körbecke is almost 300 years old, the artistic interior of which was carved by Heinrich Stütting from Beleck . The Drüggelter Chapel was probably built in the 12th century . It represents an architectural peculiarity because as a central building it falls out of the usual nave scheme of the church and chapel building in its surroundings. Various theories, which are dealt with in over 100 writings, try to interpret the construction of the chapel.

Towers and bridges

The listed sandstone Bismarck tower has been accessible as an 18 m high observation tower since 1987. This is the last Bismarck tower to be inaugurated in Germany.

The Kanzelbrücke in the district of Wamel is an architectural sight; it was completed in October 1913. According to the will of the popular district administrator of Bockum-Dolffs, it was given the architectural style of one of the oldest stone bridges that crosses the Danube in Passau.

About 1000 m south of the Körbeck pedestrian bridge, which leads over the Möhnesee, the 42.5 m high Möhneseeturm, erected in autumn 2014, stands on a hill south of the reservoir . From its viewing platform, the view of the reservoir and its surroundings as well as of the municipality of Möhnesee falls.

Sankt Meinolf hunting lodge

The Sankt Meinolf hunting lodge in the Heve valley between Neuhaus and Delecke was built in 1891 by the Hamburg banker von Donner under the name Wilhelmsruh. Later it was owned by Wilhelm von Opel. From 1911 onwards, it was expanded in a representative way through additions and modifications. It was later owned by the church. A businessman from the Netherlands then bought the property and ran a hotel and restaurant in the historic premises from 2007 until the final bankruptcy of the operating company in 2013. Since 2014 the hunting lodge has had a new owner with a private investor.


The gatehouse is on the Rennweg south of Delecke. It was built in 1911 and served as the gatehouse of the former Opel wildlife park. The access to the wildlife park led directly through the building. The gatehouse is now used as a restaurant.


A park in the municipality of Möhnesee is located on the lake promenade on Körbeck's Möhneufer. There is a suspension bridge, a large children's playground, a mini golf course and a boat rental.

Nature and landscape protection

Outside of the settlement area, the urban area is partially designated as a landscape protection area, unless there is an even higher protection status such as a nature reserve (NSG). In the municipality there are the NSGs nature reserve Hevearm and Hevesee with 300.56 ha, nature reserve Möhnetal with 607.92 ha, nature reserve Arnsberg forest with 3916.95 ha, nature reserve forest reserve Moosfelde with 98.66 ha and nature reserve training area at Büecke with 247.76 Ha.

At the same time, the area south and west of the Möhnsee, including some parts of the north bank, is part of the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park . Due to its great importance as a resting or wintering place with 4,000 to 6,000 water birds, the Möhne reservoir is designated as a European bird sanctuary in the Natura 2000 protected area system of the EU . Several areas are designated as European protected areas ( FFH areas ). The FFH areas usually include several nature reserves and areas of other protection categories.

There are also legally protected biotopes and natural monuments in the municipality . In particular, some old individual trees, remarkable groups of trees and rocks are designated as natural monuments. Below is the "Hoher Stoss", elevation in the Arnsberg Forest on the footpath from Körbecke to Neuhaus, a large anthill.

Of water bird species in particular at the dam as breeding birds grebes , mute swan , mallard , tufted duck , moorhen , gray heron , coot , kingfisher , gray wagtail and dippers before. In addition to other bird species, the large bird species black stork , red kite and common raven settle in the urban area .

In 1893, sika deer from Asia were released for the first time in the former 600 hectare game reserve owned by the banker von Donner around St. Meinolf . Wilhelm von Opel had other animals settle there. After damage to the enclosure fence in 1936, the animals escaped into the surrounding forests. At the latest after the gates were opened, this non-native species of game spread throughout the Arnsberg Forest. In the 1970s the population reached about a thousand animals. As a result of damage, hunting has reduced the population.


The Canadian soldiers stationed in Echtrop during the Cold War created their first open-air ice rink more than fifty years ago. A first ice hockey game took place there in 1954. An ice rink was later built there. After the Canadians withdrew in the 1970s, the Soest district took over the facility.

Möhnesee is located on the Westphalia hiking trail and the Sauerland forest route . The Kaiser Route , a 480 kilometer long long-distance cycle path , runs through Möhnesee .

Regular events

The farmers' market in Körbecke takes place on October 3rd. The mixture of market activity from the guest house down to the entrance to the lake stairs, music on the market square, demonstration of handicrafts, public holidays and a trial day at the volunteer fire brigade brings the place a large audience year after year.

Culinary specialties

The pikeperch from the Möhnesee is considered a culinary specialty in the region. On festive occasions, for example, it is served in combination with a wine on mountain lentils. Restaurants offer it as a seasonal dish on the menu.

Economy and Infrastructure

Atelco ( Bremen branch )

The community Möhnesee is characterized by agriculture ; many districts are located in the Soester Börde , one of the most fertile arable landscapes in Germany.

The tourism industry dominates at the Möhnesee itself. In the northern districts of Möhnesees there are mainly farms, but also the Echtrop and Wippringsen business parks.

There are also some industrial parks with some important companies. The Atelco company - manufacturer and sales chain of computers - had its headquarters in the Echtrop business park.

In 2002 there were 2453 employees subject to social security contributions in the municipality. Of these, 575 worked in manufacturing, 537 in trade, 400 in the service sector (excluding public service) and 239 in the hospitality sector.


The municipality of Möhnesee is close to the A 44 motorway ; the Federal Highway 229 leads to junction Soest. In addition, the federal road 229 crosses with the B 516 (Haarweg). The traffic connection is especially important for the tourism industry, one of the main economic factors of the municipality. Regional bus services connect with Soest and - for schoolchildren - Arnsberg.

Nonetheless, the increased traffic volume due to tourism has a negative result: The municipality of Möhnesee has - according to the district police authority of Soest - the statistics of the most traffic accidents per inhabitant of all municipalities in the district of Soest, ranks third out of 83 in the entire administrative district of Arnsberg ( 67 accidents per 10,000 inhabitants in 2007 - with a national average of 37 accidents per 10,000 inhabitants).

After the speed limit on the Körbeck Schützenstrasse to 30 kilometers per hour, a discussion arose in the early summer of 2008 about the general calming of traffic in the town centers.

Public facilities

Old school Delecke

Until 2004, the municipality of Möhnesee had two Bundeswehr locations (FlaRakGrp 21) at Haarhöhe near Echtrop , which were taken over by the former occupying powers Great Britain and Canada in the 1970s . These properties are currently (August 2005) vacant; further use is uncertain.

There is a large youth hostel with more than 200 beds on the southern edge of Körbeck. Since May 2008 the youth hostel has been using the neighboring “Joseph-Joos-Haus” as a seminar house.


In the municipality of Möhnesee, the Soester Anzeiger appears, among other things , which also posts local reports on the Internet. Local items can also be found on the news portal of the Funke media group DerWesten . WDR television reports on Möhnesee from the Siegen studio.


In the municipality of Möhnesee there is a primary school network with three sub-locations. The primary school network consists of the Pankratius School in the Körbecke district (main location), the Heidberg School in the Völlinghausen district and the St. Antonius School in the Günne district. The Möhnesee School is also located in Körbecke as a secondary school .

The Volkshochschule Soest has a branch in Möhnesee.
