The Scheffelfelsen on the edge of the mountain lake near Bad Säckingen is reminiscent of the city's most famous son, the German poet and writer Joseph Victor von Scheffel (1826-1886). Only by bushels the name "mountain lake" came into use. Originally the mountain lake was a small pond in which monastic fish farming was practiced. His former name was "Schwarzsee".
