    Natural retention basin of the Wandse. Mostly waterfowl are there.The water level is very different. In dry summers it can almost dry up, in the wet season the wall can also pile up (and over) the road.

    The "Wandseteich" is a retention basin and the largest body of water in the Stellmoorer Tunneltal. The Wandse dam, which was built in the 1950s, jams the river's irregular water loads and releases them slowly to the lower reaches. This leads to longer water than under natural conditions. The disadvantage of the retention basin: its water heats up strongly, which makes the life of typical running-water organisms in the lower reaches more difficult.

    Due to the hot summer unfortunately no water is available, and there is probably no inflow.
