The last Ice Age shaped the land, and as the climate warmed the lake thawed and split into smaller ones. Those then fragmented again. Lake Müritz is the biggest lake left with a present-day surface area of 112 square kilometers (43 square miles). Humans changed the water level of the lake a couple times, raising and lowering it through dams built to power mills in the 1700s.
