Encyclopedia > Müggelsee

The Mueggelsee is the largest citizen of Berlin lakes. One finds the designation of large Mueggelsee multiple, since he has a brother, who covers however only 0.16 km² with the small Mueggelsee. The Mueggelsee belonged to the citizen of Berlin district Treptow Koepenick, the local parts Friedrichshagen, Rahnsdorf and Mueggelheim border on the lake. The lake stretches over 7,4 km² out (max. 4.3 km long; 2.6 km broad) and is meters deep up to 8. The lake and at the suedrand lain the Mueggelberge, with 115 m the highest citizens of Berlin collections, developed during the Pleistozaens. On the so-called small Mueggelberg 1889 the much-visited and popular Mueggelturm was established, which offers and/or offered a marvelous view over the lake and the forests up to the city Silhoutte Berlin. By the Mueggelsee flows the Spree, which is called on the sections Daemmeritzsee Mueggelsee and Mueggelsee Koepenick Mueggelspree. The water company Friedrichshagen which was because of the north bank of the Mueggelsees infers a majority of his rohwassers from the lake. In addition numerous tiefbrunnen are in bank proximity, which promote bank filtrate apart from a small portion of groundwaters above all. The first denominations of the word component of "Mueggel" are according to Gerhard Schlimpert in the "Codex diplomaticus to Brandenburgensis": 1394 as the Tyns in the Miggel and 1487 as of the Miggelseh. The Etymologie remains unclear. The traditional derivative from the urslawischen mogyla = grave, grave hill, earth hill rejects Schlimpert as not durable. A vorslawische, Germanic (?) origin from the indoeuropaeischen root is more probable migh -, mighla = fog, cloud, to which for example the Netherlands miggelen = dust-rain belongs. Analyses brought the word component "home" in the name to today's citizen of Berlin of the local part Mueggelheim around 1750 Pfaelzer settlers with the plant of the village from its homeland Odernheim also after Schlimperts.
