The area with the identification number 1083 was placed under nature protection by ordinance of September 22, 2009 . The 1186 hectare nature reserve, in which the Kremmener See lies, extends northwest of the core town of Kremmen on both sides of the Kremmener Rhins .
The Kremmener Luch is the part of the Rhinluch that historically belongs to Kremmen . The area adjacent to the west was called Flatower Luch , the summer fields adjacent to the north and the Schleuener Luch to the northeast . In the south, the Kremmener Luch is bordered by the Glien plateau . With the incorporation of the neighboring towns of Flatow, Beetz and Sommerfeld zu Kremmen, their shares in the Luch are increasingly attributed to the Kremmener Luch, so that this now extends north to the Rüthnicker Heide forest area . The entire Rhinluch is a flat fen area in Brandenburg . It lies entirely within the Eberswalder glacial valley . The lynx was originally fed by seepage water from the adjacent plateaus.
The Rhin carried additional water in, but did not drain the area effectively due to its very slight slope. The waterlogging was the cause of the bog. Since the existence of the Ruppiner Canal , part of the Rhinwasser has been flowing in the opposite direction to the east in the direction of the Havel , thus helping to meet the needs of the city of Berlin. Embedded in the Luch is the Kremmener See , which was placed under nature protection as early as 1924. Here it is still possible to watch cranes , beavers and otters . The Kremmener Luch began to be drained 300 years ago. Today most of it can be used for agriculture and has thus lost its lynx character. The Kremmer Damm , the only road connection to the north, and the Kremmen – Neuruppin railway line run through the Luch .
