LIFE-Natur-Projekt "Rosenheimer Stammbeckenmoore"  LIFE-Nature-Projekt "Rosenheimer Stammbeckenmoore"
Bog park stations in Bad Feilnbach and Nicklheim

Landkreis Rosenheim - LIFE-Natur-Projekt

Park Bad Feilnbach - Sterntaler Filze
The LIFE "Moorerlebnis Sterntaler Filze", the first of 2 completed park stations, is a shared project of LIFE and the Town of Bad Feilnbach. Within the 1.5 hectare park area, bog landscape and nature can be experienced with all human senses.

Bad Feilnbacher Moorerlebnis Sterntaler Filze

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.
The construction of the station is strongly supported by the Bavarian State Forestry Department along with youth groups and regional volunteers. Due to its scenic beauty and unique bog experiences,  the site became a real visitor magnet. Fortunately visitors respect the restricted walkways avoiding the disturbance of nature. The bog station enforces the public consciousness of bog nature environment and the necessity for bog protection and renaturalization.

  2. Four meter high lookout hill with view of the peat renaturalization areas, natural Sterntaler bogs and alpine panorama

Bog park Nicklheim -  Kollerfilze
The bog park 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.
