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.

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.
