Tips

  • Nicolet

    Nice but quite small bog. The wooden walkways should be used with extreme caution, especially in winter, because they are extremely smooth.

    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.

    A special eye-catcher in winter with ice, especially since the cattail looks nice.

    The wooden plank path with snow is super nice and the high moor exudes a very special flair.

    The Schopflocher Moor represents a scenic feature in the karst area of the Swabian Alb. It owes its creation to a water-retaining clay layer, which was created by the weathering of the rock filling of a volcanic vent. Due to the silting up of the Maarsee, which was once present at this point, the only larger raised bog in the Swabian Alb developed, benefiting from the high rainfall on the Albtrauf.

    Here you walk directly on the moor on boardwalks, which makes a lot of fun for children

    At the entrance to the peat bog is the Otto Hoffmeister house. There the Landgasthof Albengel offers regional cuisine.
    The hike started at the nearby car park

    Especially recommended in autumn. Best in the morning, when the fog is hanging over the peat pit and the trees are only dimly recognizable.
