The spa town of Titisee
has merged into one municipality with the town of Neustadt, now
officially called Titisee-Neustadt. This has grown into an
appealing tourist destination. The Titisee lake, probably named
after the Roman emperor Titus, is one of the main attractions,
situated at 858 metres above sea level on the forested slopes
between Feldberg and Hochfirst. The lake is some two kilometres
long and around 700 metres wide.
This reservoir-like lake is
dammed by glacial moraine and fed by the Seebach stream. The
outflow is called the Gutach, which joins the Haslach to form
the Wutach (Furious Water). This flows through the Wutach gorge
before emptying into the River Rhine. The lake is a popular spot
for all kinds of recreational activities such as fishing,
sailing and windsurfing. The lake is encircled by a pleasant
path which takes about 1 � hours to walk.
