Tips

  • Roman Domhardt + Zera vom Laucherttal

    The Feldsee is a must that you should definitely plan in - not only because it is fascinating and because of the history of its origin, but also because of the breathtaking surroundings in the high moor. :)

    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.

    From the house of nature, past the station of Feldbergbahn over rocky hairpin bends it goes down to the lake. Walking time about 30 minutes
    Then another 5 minutes to the Raimartihof and deserved stop.

    The Feldsee is located east of the Feldberg and has a depth of 32 m. From three sides it is bordered by up to 300 m high stone walls and is located at 1100 m above sea level. NN. Here at the Feldsee you can rest wonderfully before you climb the Feldberg. For the natural paradise surrounded by Bannwald with its black ink color, the dark coniferous woodland and the rugged rocky slopes invites you to linger.

  • 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.

    Wonderful rest area, Baden forbidden! There is a unique aquatic plant that lives here and only occurs in this, as well as in the Schluchsee.

    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.

    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.

    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

  • 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.
