The last remnants of the only bog on the Swabian Alb. From the 17th and 18th century peat was mined here, partly by convicts.
Only in 1942, the moor was declared a nature reserve, after it was almost completely ruined by merciless mining and drainage. The moor slowly continues to die because there is still more water in it than it flows into.
The Schopflocher Nature Conservation Center offers guided tours to the moor.
