Bad Feilnbacher Moorerlebnis Sterntaler Filze


The LIFE Station "Moorerlebnis Sterntaler Filze" was the first of 2 completed stations and is a shared project of LIFE and the community of Bad Feilnbach. Within the 1.5 hectare park area, bog landscape and nature can be experienced with all human senses.
Main attractions among others are bird watching stations, a lookout hill made of peat, water filled peat diggings and a 650 m long boardwalk granting access to the bog even for disabled in wheel chairs.

Bog Station Nicklheim

The bog station "Moorstation Nicklheim" was completed at the end of the project.
The bog station Nicklheim serves in environmental education, especially allowing school classes an insight to the natural habitats of bogs.
From the "green classroom", also from the observation tower and two observation positions, one has an excellent view of the renaturalization areas and its bird life world.
Other attractions are the botanic terrains with the illustration of raised bog plants, peat diggings and a formerly used small field train.
The bog station is closed for cars and is connected with a network of almost 5 km of barrier free hiking paths.

Protection of meadow breeding - Breeding bird species still live in the Nature protection areas „Auer Weidmoos“ and „Kaltenaue“. They are especially sensitive
to hikers with unleashed dogs, this could even cause them to abandon their nests. Since there is no trespass order in the legal regulation of both nature areas, visitors are kindly requested to respect the peace of the wildlife.
