    The Federsee at Bad Buchau in Upper Swabia (Biberach district) is with an area of ​​1.4 km ², the second largest lake in Baden-Württemberg. It is located in the middle of the 33 km ² largest moor area in south-western Germany and is with this the remainder of a once much larger, about 50 km ² covering post glacial lake. This complex of lake and moor today forms the core of the geological spring basin, which, after renaturation measures, has an outstanding natural and cultural historical significance with its former banks and islands.The present basin landscape is now above all also a model for the ecological restoration of an already largely destroyed natural landscape together with its botanical and zoological habitats and the associated protection and research of ancient cultural products, which have been decreasing the lake level and drainage since the middle of the 19th century The moors came to light and are now part of the UNESCO World Heritage.The Federsee and its surrounding in the central basin Moor / Ried are now in an area of ​​23.76 km ², so protected to more than two-thirds, the area also bears as nature and European bird sanctuary "Federseeried" the predicate "European Reserve" and has been included in the Natura 2000 network of protected areas by the European Union.Source:
