Please check local regulations for: Pfrunger-Burgweiler Ried
The Pfrunger-Burgweiler Ried (formerly Pfrunger Ried) is after the Federsee with 2600 hectares the second largest contiguous moorland in southwest Germany.emergence
Today's moor area is what remains of a post-Ice Age lake, which gradually filled up with sediment and mineral deposits after the Rhine glacier melted and thus partially silted up. This resulted in fens and in some places raised bogs above them. These areas were characterized by depth and wetness and were not suitable for permanent human settlement. However, solid islands were also formed as a result of mineral inundations, on which the first permanent human settlements arose. However, the core area of the area remained unsettled and was considered unbuildable, inferior land.
