Buchenau (Hesurian: Reichsstadt Buchenau, formerly Buchenau im Sigismund) is a small archipelago and town in Lake Sigismund within Mascyllary territorial waters. It is the capital of the county (Kreis) of Groß-Buchenau in the state of Sigismund, and is located near the maritime border to Juznia. Measured from the west coast of Gothern at Sankt Würsar, the island group is 7 kilometres away from the shoreline, having a size of 4.1 km2 (1.6 sq mi) and a population of 2,278 on 15 July 2018. It is connected to the mainland by a railway dam leading to Buchenau Hauptbahnhof.
The originally bigger island of volcanic origin broke apart due to erosion in 1050; since then the new bigger and smaller island are named Corland and Buchenau respectively. The town and islands endured light earthquake activity since, a destructive one hitting in 1726 with 6.8 magnitude. Since 1305, it is an imperial city (Reichsstadt), but has meanwhile been integrated into Mascylla as a constituent free city. Its historic core is the protected old town, attracting thousands of tourists throughout the year. Buchenau is also home to a renowned clinic and cohesive facility, and communal vineyard.
