The Dosenmoor near Neumünster-Einfeld is considered to be the best preserved Atlantic plateau high moor in Schleswig-Holstein and at the same time the largest raised moor in the eastern hill country. The nature reserve, which was secured by state ordinance in 1981, still has the full and original extent of its size of 521 hectares. This means that the raised bog is still clearly recognizable as such in the landscape today. In addition, standing in the center, you can also experience the clock-glass-shaped bulge of the tree-free high moor, which is raised above the surrounding landscape.Since the 18th century, peat has been used by farmers in the Dosenmoor and the associated continuous, profound drainage of the moor, which is exclusively fed by rainwater, has taken place. The current good state of preservation of the Dosenmoor with a remarkable eight to nine meters of peat thickness in the central area is due to the fact that the industrial peat extraction with large machines only affected the southern part of the Dosenmoor from 1966 to 1976. In this short time alone, around 200,000 cubic meters of peat have been extracted from around 160 Hekar. In large parts of the central plateau, however, the original raised bog surface is still present. In the northern part and in the edge areas (edge slopes), on the other hand, the landscape is characterized by the numerous peat hollows from the time of the rural manual peat digging
