A core from the deepest part of lake Königsegg. near Ostrach (Oberschwaben), has been studied palynologically and lithologically. The core is only 4.6 m long; lacustrine sedimentation began in the Oldest Dryas. The Alleroedian pumice tuff from Laacher See (Eifel) is present. The origin of the lake as a dead ice lake and its limnogeological development are briefly discussed.
