Moor - an old natural raw material with a variety of applications has been shaping people's health consciousness for many years. Around Bad Aibling, the oldest moor spa in Bavaria, there is one of the largest and healthiest growing moorland areas in Germany.
All moors in Germany are under strict nature protection. They are a unique habitat for many rare plants and animals. Typical moorland landscapes are characterised by birches, sundew, peat moss, bulrushes as well as rare dragonflies and frog species. From a scientific point of view, the term moor refers to the entire wetland landscape, while the raw material extracted from it is called peat. In colloquial language, however, the healing natural substance is also referred to as moor.
