Lake Titisee Black Forest. A Family Vacation With Pleasant And Beautiful Memories.
My family and I have travelled to Germany Lake Titsee for a holiday. Opposite the lake are shop houses selling food, souvenirs and more. There is a restaurant selling tasty and aromatic pork knuckles. I also bought 2 beautiful wooden carvings. Check out the picture below.
Friends, I like to share some historical and factual information about Lake Titisee, kindly read on below. Thank You.
As a result of the last ice age, the Titisee was formed. The present-day lake was surrounded by a glacier just 10,000 years ago. A glacier-carved basin and a terminal moraine have formed the basin of Lake Titisee. In terms of length, width, and depth, the lake is approximately 850 meters high and 2 kilometers long. It is 40 meters deep. The lake is a great place to swim, sail, windsurf, pedalo, and stroll along the water’s edge.
There is a lake named Titisee in the southern part of the Black Forest in Baden-Württemberg. Averaging 20 m (66 ft) deep, it covers an area of 1.3 km (320 acres). Lake Feldberg derives its name from the moraines of the Feldberg glacier, which formed in the Pleistocene era and form the lake’s shores today. At 840 meters (2760 feet) above sea level, the Lake Gutach empties into the Haslach stream below Kappel, which merges with the Wutach to form the river. Therefore, the Titisee drains into the Upper Rhine between Tiengen and Waldshut. There is a spa town of the same name on the north shore of the Titisee, now a part of the municipality of Titisee-Neustadt.
When a glacier remains stationary for an extended period of time, the weight of the glacier excavates the landscape, resulting in the formation of a glacial lake. When the glacier is less powerful, the subsoil is less excavated and rises. Furthermore, it is possible that a moraine (a deposit of rock material transported with the glacier) prevents the runoff from occurring. As ice melts, water is dammed up to the moraine, resulting in the formation of a lake. The Titisee was formed during the Pleistocene era. Until 10,000 years ago, the Feldberg and Lake Titisee were connected by a glacier. Today, the Titisee is formed by a basin carved out by the glacier and a terminal moraine.
Because of the winds that keep the surface of the Titisee moving almost continuously throughout the winter, it takes a long time for it to freeze over. In order for the frozen lake to be opened for use, it must have a solid ice thickness of at least 16 cm (6.3 in) (solid ice and compacted ice have almost no areas of air pockets). Three to four daily ice measurements are taken by the Titisee-Neustadt municipal authorities when conditions appear favorable for the opening of the lake. It is only possible to open a specific area of the lake for public use if those responsible approve, but the entire lake is never opened.
Generally, people who lived in the valleys surrounding Titisee (Altenweg, Spriegelsbach, Schildwende and Jostal) worked in agriculture, breeding cattle. Nearer to the lake were craftsmen such as blacksmiths, wagon makers, and shingle makers. Around the lake have existed scattered farms for a long time. A central village emerged at the lake following the construction of the Höllentalbahn and the onset of tourism at the beginning of the 20th century.
A number of predatory fish can be found in Titisee, including pike-perch, sea trout and a large number of pike, as well as schooling fish (whitefish, roach, perch) and shallow-water species such as carp, chub, and tench. On the lakebed and in the streams that enter the lake, brown trout, char and rainbow trout are also found, as well as eels and burbot. There are also small varieties of fish, such as sunbleaks, minnows, and brook lampreys. In the vicinity of the lake, gray herons can be observed.
The lake attracts tourists during the summer season with activities such as swimming, sailing, windsurfing, pedalo rental, hiking around the lake, and strolling along the promenade. There are also a number of open-air events organized around the lake each summer.
