Surface Area = 32 Sq. Kms. Largest Inland lake in NorthWest Germany. The lake originated during the last ice age 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. A thick layer of ice formed in the permafrost ground. As it slowly melted, the ground began to sink and water gathered within the basin. The fortress on this island was built by Duke Wilhelm (1724-1777). Piles of stones that had to be carried to this place make it an artificial island. Originally, Wilhelm established a military college here. Today, it's a museum and tourist destination.
