    In the hilly moor landscape near Schönwald you will find the legendary Blindensee. The lake is the most beautiful in the morning, when clouds of fog from the moorland dive the black-looking lake into an eerie mood. In the Middle Ages, it was believed that all waters in the world were connected by an underground ocean. According to the legend, a farmer fell asleep on his oxcart at Blindensee and went down with his wagon in the moor. Days later, however, he is said to have reappeared at Kehl am Rhein with his oxen.

    As one of the few still intact bogs of the Black Forest worth a recommendation in any case. Until 1100 AD. The moor could develop completely unaffected by humans. Even then, peat was never mined on a large scale, so that the moor still grows. Every year about 1mm.

    Incredible quiet mood spreads the blind lake. You just have to stay and enjoy the play of light, shadow and reflections.

    Mystic place! Emits an incredible silence and tranquility. It is somehow forced to stay and to pick up the mood

    The Blindensee unfolds its magic in every season. With the windmill reflected in the water, absolute nature and modern technology come together. A place of rest and gathering, if you are there for two, will fall into a whisper during the conversation. Be sure to visit and show respect for nature

    Narrow wooden walkway leads through the forest over the moor to the beautiful Blindsee. There, a few benches invite you to rest in the sun; with a view over the lake. It is relatively narrow with the stroller and bicycles should be pushed so that oncoming pedestrians are not pushed off the path. ;)

    A bit lurid, the title, but the Blindensee biotope with the wind turbine directly next to it entices. From the environmental point of view, the contrast is not that big ...

    Several benches overlooking the blind lake invite to a pause.

    The jetty runs very pleasant and should not be left to signage, so as not to damage the sensitive bog area.

    This bog lake is very worth seeing. He is surrounded by an individual moor.

    Romantic lake in the nature reserve! Unfortunately defaced by a wind turbine. So you can also destroy nature with ecology.

    Blindensee is just beautiful. There is hardly anything going on during the week. Great place to switch off.

    A small but one of the most beautiful raised bogs in the entire Black Forest. However, hell is going on Sundays in summer.
