At the southern end, above the Mummelsee, stands the 23 m high Hornisgrindeturm. Its construction in 1910 goes back to the initiative of the Badischer Schwarzwaldverein. The building material was used in the vicinity of standing Buntsandstein. Together with the Mummelsee the tower was one of the most popular excursion destinations of the region. In 1942 he was seized by the German Air Force. After the Second World War, the French military used it. In 2000, the Waldgenossenschaft Seebach bought back the tower from the federal government and transferred it to the municipality of Seebach in Erbpacht. On May 29, 2005, the tower was reopened to the public. He was named "Monument of the Month June 2005" by the Denkmalstiftung Baden-Württemberg. In relatively clear weather, the tower has a panoramic view of numerous mountains of the Black Forest, the Vosges Mountains, parts of the Palatinate Forest and the Swabian Alb. In very good visibility, some peaks of the Alps can be seen in the south.

The well-known 23 meter high observation tower has been joined by a new, elegant high-altitude guesthouse, which has been inviting guests since 22 December. The owner of the 2.5 million expensive project was the Waldgenossenschaft Seebach. The hut is run by the Zepf family, which is well known in Baiersbronn with its Forsthaus Auerhahn hotel and now also wants to pamper its guests with Black Forest specialties on the Hornisgrinde.
