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.
