Mummelsee in the Black Forest | Mermaid Lake
Another adventurous gorgeous blue sky day took us to this tranquil lake with nice walking trails just minutes from the Black Forest Panoramic Road. There are many trails to choose from according to your ability level and you could easily spend hours there. Along the paths are wooden benches and various statues and carvings pointing out the legends of the lake. Be sure to check out the lovely hotel and restaurant where we first stopped for coffee upon arrival and later again for lunch.
This would be a really great destination for just about anyone. In summer, there are activities such as hiking, mountain biking, paddle boats, and canoeing, plus a little playground for kids to play on. In winter, plenty of opportunities to breathe in the benefits of the brisk, clean air while cross-country skiing your way through the Black Forest.
If you’re driving west from the Stuttgart area, driving time is around 1.5 hours. Makes for a great day or weekend trip!
