From Wikipedia: The Edersee is a large reservoir created by the construction, from 1908 to 1914, of a rock and concrete dam across the Eder river, near the small town of Waldeck in northern Hesse, Germany, to generate hydropower and regulate water levels for shipping on the Weser river. It lies at the northern edge of the Kellerwald.
Another card I received through "Your Hometown" RR, another interesting place I have never heard about. Michelle was sweet to write about the history of this area: "That's the Valley where I live. It's a famous area with many tourists. The reservoir was built in 1908-1914 and destroyed in 1943 (*Operation Chastise, by special bombs dropped from British Bomber plane*). The water destroyed many villages and killed many people. But it was rebuilt and today, it's a very nice place. There are many castles in this area which are great to visit. There lived princes from 1137 until 1692. I love this area!"
