Tips

  • Matthias Brandt

    The Hornisgrinde is the highest mountain in the northern Black Forest. The summit here is a fairly large flat plain on which there is a high moor in the southern part of the plateau. This can be crossed via a boardwalk. At the southern end, above the Mummelsee, is the Hornisgrindeturm. At the highest point of the mountain, in the middle of the summit level, there is another tower, the Bismarck Tower. In addition, there are now several wind turbines on the summit level. From the Hotel Mummelsee, which is located on the B 500, the summit level can be reached quickly and the view can be enjoyed.

    The Hornisgrindeturm gives many visitors the impression that it is the legacy of an old castle. The Hornisgrindegipfel with the beautiful lookout tower and the likewise beautiful "Grindenhotel" is together with the Mummelsee one of the most popular excursion destinations in the whole region.

    Should rather be "above the fog". Is always particularly impressive when the Rhine Valley is a sea of ​​fog.

    THE HISTORY OF THE HORNISGRINDE: PASTURE AREAS, MILITARY USE AND EXCURSION DESTINATION
    "... Unique region full of legends and experiences ...
    The name Hornisgrinde goes back in all likelihood to the components "Horn", "Miss" and "Grind", which means something like "rocky, bald head that supports a bog". ... "
