Königsdorfer Weidfilz

With 11 percent moorland, the District of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen is one of the regions in Bavaria with the highest density of moors. The 250-hectare Königsdorfer Weidfilz was classified by the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment, Public Health and Consumer Protection (StMUGV) as a moorland region of state-wide important on account of its size.

Unfortunately the peat body has shrunk by about one metre due to intensive use over the last 50 years. Despite this damage, the Königsdorfer Weidfilz still has large open and high-lying moorland areas and very good preconditions for renaturation. As in the case of the other projects too, expert appraisals have to be drawn up, soil samples taken, sites purchased, and finally the rewetting itself must be carried out.

The NABU, together with its partner association, the Bavarian society for the Protection of Birds (LBV), is committed to the renaturation of the Königsdorfer Weidfilz. The LBV looks after several protected areas in the administrative district and is a strong partner to successfully implement this further project by the NABU's German Moor Conservation Fund thanks to its many years of experience working in the field of moorland protection.
