  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    The Feldsee is the highest lake in Germany outside the Alps.

    The approximately 97,500 m² large and up to 32 m deep Karsee was created by glaciers from the last ice ages.

    It is bordered on three sides by steep walls up to 300 m high. It is almost circular, with a diameter between 350 and 370 meters.

    The elevation, which is open to the northeast at 1,100 m and which allowed larger amounts of snow to accumulate and maintain, was the cause of the armchair-like shape of the terrain with the steep back wall, the flat floor and the moraine wall in front.

  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    The Seebach flows through the Feldsee, which rises between Feldberg and Seebuck im Grüble, falls down the Karwand in the Feldsee waterfall and later, on the other side of the Titisees, is named Gutach.

    For tens of thousands of years the brook has been the upper reaches of the Wutach, which drains to the Rhine.

    The Feldsee is despite the hustle and bustle around the Feldberg a quiet oasis.

    Great view from there above the Black Forest beyond. Worth a recommendation. A nice hike to the Feldsee.

    Great lake. Very clear and at least in the bank area quite flat - you can see the fish very well. Bathing has been prohibited for several years.

    Beautiful lake in a beautiful forest environment with some steeply rising slopes and old forest. Be sure to circle the lake and not just brush on the side. The views are from many places always different and new.

    The lake is 32 meters deep, a pelvis excavated by glaciers since the Ice Age. The cool, oxygen-rich Karsee is fed by streams from the source-rich east waste of the Seebuck.

    Very nice circular walk. Start at the house of nature direction Seebuckhütte then over the Felsenweg to Feldsee

    Even in winter, the hike to the Feldsee is worthwhile. There is also a cross-country ski trail that passes the Raimartihof.

    A lake like a picture book: The nine-hectare Feldsee is surrounded by a Black Forest idyll on the steep slopes of the Feldberg. It is 32 meters deep and was formed by glaciers during the Ice Age. To the north and east of the Feldsee is surrounded by a spell forest, a forest area that is left to itself. The lake is under nature conservation and is not a bathing lake.

    a brilliant in the southern Black Forest! it is 1109 m. above sea level. M. and is rather flat in the west, but in the east, towards its glacial end moraine, up to 32 m deep. Pleasantly shady in summer and a great destination with the nearby Raimartihof.

    The path alone, almost a single trail far from mass tourism, is worth this detour.

    The route is a bit easier to walk than the western route via Baldenweger Hütte. applies to ascent and descent.

    Before that, a good lunch at the Raimartihof before continuing our tour towards Feldsee. A heavenly tranquility that the lake radiates, embedded around the mountains. 😀

    You actually get the complete program on the Feldbergsteig. From mountain peaks, Feldsee and beautiful hiking trails. The hospitality on the route is also absolutely great. However, you shouldn't be shy of people - you have already met some people
