Where we are:

From Raitenbuch (one of communities of Lenzkirch), from the  Holzmatten (on the road from Raitenbuch to Fischbach), from Berg (also part of Lenzkirch) and from the Schwende brooks run into the Urseetal. The former two bring their water into the Ursee. From the Ursee the water flows through the Urseetal and takes up the creeks from Berg and Schwende. At the spa hotel where the Urseebach flows into the Haslach, the center of Lenzkirch is found.

The Urseebach (creek) arises in the Ursee, a lake in the moor representing a glacial relict. The highmoor around has maintained its particular character. It contains numerous plants of marsh plants, which became  rare in the Black Forest as well as in Germany.

The reasons for a website “Urseetal”?

Logo The natural reserve Ursee is considered a precious treasure which needs attention more than has been investigated before. Due to a certain failure in maintaining the landscape aroung the Ursee and due to seemingly forced grasping the resources for agricultaral purposes the deserving protection is at risk. By informing about the species diversity and the specialities we would to maintain and enhance the awareness of this treasure. Your attention is very much appreciated.
