Attractions near Mummelsee

Hornisgrinde0.74km from Mummelsee

At 1,164 m (3,820 ft) above the sea level, is the highest mountain in the Northern Black Forest of Germany. The treeless wet heathlands on the highest areas here were created following forest clearance and the subsequent use of the land as grazing in the 15th century.

All Saints' Abbey6.72km from Mummelsee

One of the major religious, cultural and political centres of the region from 13th to 18th century. A bolt of lightning struck the church tower in 1804, causing a large fire and destroying the building completely. Previously, two large fires in 1470 and 1555 had already destroyed parts of the monastery premises.

All Saints Waterfalls7.38km from Mummelsee

The Lierbach stream cascades as a natural waterfall, down seven steps, a total drop of 83 metres creating All Saints Waterfalls. The waterfalls belonged for centuries to a monastery- All Saints' Abbey, the ruins of which are only a few hundred metres away. Because they lie in a deeply incised and narrow valley, they were inaccessible for a long time.

With an overall length of 1,250 metres and a top height of 20 metres, the treetop walk meanders through the beech trees, firs and spruces of the mountain forest. There is a 40-metre-high, architecturally unique observation tower here that gives panoramic views of the forest.
