The Bernstein is a mountain, 693.5 m above sea level , in the Northern Black Forest within the borough of Gaggenau , and the borough of Bad Herrenalb, . It is part of the ridge that borders the lower Murg valley on its eastern side. The summit of this mountain is formed by a six-metre-high crag made of bunter sandstone with a flat top, 25 m² in area, from where there are good views.
The origin of the first part of the name, Bern, is the Old High German word, bero, which meant “bear”. Bears lived in the Northern Black Forest until the Late Middle Ages. Stein refers to block of rock that forms the summit.
