    According to some traditions, it is alleged to have been a vicious altar on which Celtic priests worshiped Belzebub. Moors and dark lakes are places where often Celtic cult places lay. In their rituals, the Celts buried valuable objects in bogs and lakes. The custom of throwing a coin into a well is still a remnant of source and lake worship. Maybe you can throw a ring or a silver coin into the lake?

    Inge Kiessig tells in her Berlin saga collection of another legend about this gloomy lake:

    "In the dense reed belt on the edge of the Teufelssees there used to be a big rock. He was called the princess stone, for he indicated the place where there had once been a splendid castle that inhabited a princess. She was cursed and sunk into the moor with her palace. But sometimes it came to light. "

    A beautiful spot of nature in the middle of Berlin. The forest school offers a range of interesting offers. If you want to relax or go on a journey of discovery, this is the place for you. The pier through the middle of the lake and moor offers great insights into fauna and flora.

    A beautiful little lake that is easy to miss. Make sure to walk all the way around it and take the bridge over the marsh.

    A quiet and peaceful lake hidden away from the crowds. Be sure to walk all the way around it so you don't miss the silver birches and the bridge across the marsh.

    The holiday camp is a legend that never existed here, at least not in my life. Maybe long before 1959.
    But in any case, there was a restaurant of the HO right on the lake. After the turnaround, the grounds of the restaurant were renatured. Only those who know the place know that there was a restaurant there.

    Legend has it that there is a sunken castle at the bottom of the lake. Some days you should hear the princess singing at midnight ...
