This lake with hotel and a few touristy shops is on the main B500 through the Black Forest. Quite nice stop to 'stretch your legs' with a 30 minute walk round the lake and good views to the west but otherwise disappointing.

Beautiful stop when driving through the Black Forest on the B500. There is the lake itself but also a really nice gift shop, hotel and even a cafe / restaurant offering beer and burgers.

We visited Baden Baden in the heart of winter but there wasn't much snow in town, our hotel reception recommended that we take the bus up to Mummelsee. I'm glad we did as it was the highlight of our trip. We had lunch at the restaurant upstairs and then took a stroll around the lake. Visibility was up and down... More

The lake is located 20 minutes away by car. It is very picturesque, with a height of more than a kilometer can be clearly seen, and the surrounding valley towns. Around the lake you can walk, located near the hotel with a good restaurant and a shopping arcade where you can buy local products.

Mummelsee is a small lake with in lovely surroundings. There is a short walk route around the lake with stopping points along the way. There is also a very touristy shop for trinkets/souvenirs and generally typical Black Forest/German items. There is plenty of free parking as well. Allow yourself up to an hour to really take in the area, although... More

The lake was frozen when in Baden Baden is was spring/ summer weather. Great views with white mountain tops! The souvenir/ traditional shop next to the lake is worth a visit as they have some cool stuff.

This rather a nice lake with an hotel, restauranr and a few shops at the head of the lake. After travelling the Black Forest High Road which was quite quiet, we were amazed to discover the numbers of buses and cars parked here. The shop was very, very busy, the cafe closed, the retaurant open and people grouped together. We... More

The Mummelsee Lake is 1083 meters above sea level.and when we arrived the area was covered in snow.For me it was a novelty because apart from a trip to Mount Hermon about 25 years ago I hadn't seen snow.There is a large souvenir store and a restaurant there.Also slides for children.

We stopped at Lake Mummelsee on our way to Baden-Baden from Freiburg. To get there you have to drive through the winding roads through the Black Forest which is quite a good drive. Even for a frozen March. Once we arrived at Lake Mummelsee, it was quite full of tourists. It was quite a sight though, as the lake was... More

I doubted whether I should go or not because of the mixed reviews I saw but it is a must! It was frozen over in the beginning of April and it was wonderful. We walked up to the Hornisgrinde tower where the views were simply incredible! If you are anywhere close, make sure you go and visit the lake!
