Cleaning the Sylvanstein Reservoir - visited on December 10, 2015

The Sylvensteinsee is embedded in the Karwendel Alps

Stretching across the beautiful Isar River valley in Bavaria, Germany,
 the Sylvenstein Dam protects the capital city of Munich
 and the town of Bad Tölz from devastating floods.

For comparison, this photo is from April 2009 and is a similar
view of the photo above
When the Sylvensteinsee was built (1954-59),
the old village Fall sunk in the lake reservoir. 

The reservoir is emptied for cleaning once every 15 years

For comparison, this was taken in April 2009.  Most of the pictures
above were taken from under the bridge on the right
