Beautiful moorland with a moor nature trail ...The Kendlmühlfilzen has developed from the Verlandungszone of the formerly much larger Lake Chiemsee. It is the largest, contiguous bog in Bavaria. The peat layer had reached thicknesses of seven to eight meters. In past centuries, this peat was used primarily by farmers for the production of litter and fuel. From the middle of the 19th century, there was also the industrial extraction of peat. A peat station was created in 1920 on the railway line Rosenheim-Salzburg in Rottau. As peat workers, the prisoners of the penal institution Bernau were used. In the 1970s and 80s, a large area of milled peat was then produced for the production of potting soil. The destruction of the moor was fought by residents and environmental associations with the citizens' initiative Rettet the Kendlmühlfilzen. After decades of disputes in 1988, the setting of the Mine removal and 1992 the designation as a nature reserve. The areas were renatured as far as possible. [Source: Wikipedia]
