    The park bench directly at the Rothenbach pond invites you to a relaxed picnic with a view over the lake.

    The "Rothenbach Pond" is part of the pond landscape of the High Vogelsberg and comprises the pond, which is mainly fed with melt water, as well as adjacent hedge, grassland and forest areas. The pond has a wide, well-developed and near-natural vegetation from reed beds and sedge communities, which are accompanied by particularly worthy protection of bristlegrass turf, wet meadows, deciduous willow bushes as well as beech and spruce stands and a moist black alder forest with a rich herb layer. The small-scale mosaic of the different biotope types offers valuable, often rare animal and plant species a habitat. The "Rothenbachteich" is of particular and national importance for the bird world. Many bird species find suitable retreat areas for their brood business, others visit the area as a resting place on the annual flight to the summer and winter quarters. The riparian vegetation of the pond is also home to some rare dragonflies and amphibians. Source: rp-giessen.hessen.de/rothenbachteich

    The Rothenbachteich is a real jewel among the ponds (lakes) of the Vogelsberg. Very idyllic location invites you to linger again and again.

    In the immediate vicinity of this old hut at the Rothenbach pond is a parking lot for hikers. For me it is the ideal starting point for this tour, as following the route you come across fields and meadows to the larger lakes and finally hike through the forest.

    The nature reserves Ober-Mooser Teich (56.5 ha), Reichloser Teich (38.7 ha) and Rothenbachteich (25 ha) are located in the south-eastern area of the Vogelsberg between Gedern and Fulda near the towns of Bermuthshain, Ober-Moos and Reichlos.
    The ponds are artificially dammed at a height of 450m and are located in a landscape shaped by agriculture and forestry, surrounded by basalt heights.
    The ponds are used by waterfowl, and when the water level is low also by waders, as a transit and resting area.
    Breeding birds of the area include:
    Great crested and little grebes, occasionally black-necked grebes, mallards, pochards, pale, moor and water rails.
    There are over 100 bird species in the area.
    Paths lead around the ponds, from which one can have a good view of the water surface.
    The best observation times are September to November and the months of March/April.
    In the winter months, the ponds are often frozen.
    The so-called Vogelsberg ponds are part of the 520 square kilometer Vogelsberg EU bird sanctuary for the preservation of black stork, red kite, gray woodpecker, great gray shrike, eagle owl, osprey and numerous other species.
    NABU-Hessen bought the Ober-Mooser Teich and the Reichloser Teich in 2003 after a fundraising campaign for €600,000.
    The Rothenbachteich belongs to the state of Hesse.
