    The Feldsee is an absolute must, which you should definitely plan - not only because it is fascinating and because of its history, but also because of the breathtaking surroundings in the 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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    A circumnavigation of the lake is worthwhile due to the many different and beautiful changes of perspective

    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.
