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.
