“stumbled acroos a little gem”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

we were travelling the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse from Baden Baden to Friedenstadt and stumbled across Mummelsee. Lovely setting with some magnificent views over the Black Forest. Some good eateries and a wood fired baking oven where the bakers are at it all day.
There's also a lake where you can hire boats and some tracks for walking and/or mountain biking
Recommend a quick stop to explore

“Lake in the mountains in the Black Forest”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I wouldn't call it a lake, it's more like a large pond. The attraction of Mummelsee is not just the place itself. You're driving through the Black Forest region (if you come from the south, which we did), you go up the mountains, have intermittent spectacular views, very shaded drive, a little scary at points because of the sharp turns and high speeds other cars are going at, and near the top, the little lake hidden behind a parking lot surrounded by trees. Peaceful setting. Since the place is not where international tourists go, all signs are in German. A visit here is recommended as the drive there is as nice as the lake itself.

“The road to Mummelsee is a must when you are visiting Baden-Baden”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The lake itself is a walk around a nice mountain lake, but the road to it is the famous "Schwarzwalstrasse" with several places to enjoy the great view in the Rhein valley and on the french side (by good weather only !)

“Peaceful and lovely”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We loved the drive and the lake itself. The lake isn't too large but yet there is something about the trees there that all of us found our excursion there truly rewarding.
There is a little play area for the kids and a few caged animals for the little ones to enjoy. Our 13 and 12 years old also enjoyed the play and the little picnic we had there.

“peaceful”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

It was very quiet here, and everyone seemed extra friendly to each other. There is a lot of random things around the lake, most with a description, but only in German.
