Germany | Mummelsee in the Black Forest


Mummelsee in the Black Forest

Another adventurous gorgeous blue sky day took us to this tranquil lake also known as Mermaid Lake with nice walking trails just minutes from the Black Forest Panoramic Road. There are many trails to choose from according to your ability level and you could easily spend hours there. Along the paths are wooden benches with various statues and carvings pointing out the legends of the lake nestled in the Black Forest. Be sure to check out the lovely hotel and restaurant where we first stopped for coffee upon arrival and later again for lunch. 

Things to Do

This would be a really great destination for just about anyone. In summer, there are activities such as hiking, mountain biking, paddle boats, and canoeing, plus a little playground for kids to play on.  In winter, plenty of opportunities to breathe in the benefits of the brisk, clean air while cross-country skiing your way through the Black Forest.
