Frondenberg an der Ruhr

Andreas in Germany tells me that Frondenberg an der Ruhr gets it's name from the Ruhr river which runs through this part of the country.  A lot of places in the area are named for the river. Collectively " Ruhrgebiet".  

This town was one of the most damaged by the Dambusters in World War II when they bombed the reservoir.  The water was 2 meters high in the town.
