Tiebelmündung nature reserve - a paradise for flora and fauna.With a total area of approx. 627 hectares, the Pencils Moor, which is closed off by a dam, borders directly on the Ossiacher See. In the northern part, the bog has typical acidic and low-quality grasses, while the southern part is covered with heather, birch trees and shrubs. Over the years, the bog was drained to make the formerly swampy areas available for agriculture. This modern and intensive use also burdened the Ossiacher See for years, which led to an increased formation of algae in the lake. In recent years, the polluting sludge has been removed from the lake by pumping to sustainably reduce the formation of algae. The adjacent nature reserve "Tiebelmündung" offers the colorful fauna and flora a very special habitat. For example, the observation towers in the nature reserve can be used to discover a wide variety of protected bird species, some of which are protected.Please note that the Pencils Moor can only be explored on foot - thanks for your consideration!

Along the hiking trail on the eastern shore of Lake Ossiach there are two erected lookout towers, from which you have a great view of the Pencils Moor.
The northern tower can be easily reached by bike from Steindorf, but you should visit the second tower on foot. Nature rangers control the driving ban and the mountain rescue service may also remove organ mandates.
