Haby Night Lost Viking Lake.jpg

At the southwestern end of the village of Haby the meadows are filled with fog some nights. This is where there was, until the middle of the last century,[citation needed] a big lake which was linked to the Wittensee. For a thousand years it was used by people living in this area as a fishing ground till the growing agricultural industry caused the lake to vanish. Haby was mentioned in records first 800 years ago. The ending "by" indicates Viking origins. Haby is the most southern location in Germany with the "by" ending. There is another village with an almost identical name in southern Sweden.
