The Schauinsland , is a mountain in the Black Forest with an elevation of 1,284 m above sea level. It is a popular destination for day trips. Due to the high amount of silver mining, it was previously known as “Erzkasten” ; the name “Schouwesland” first appeared in 1347. The mountain is located roughly ten kilometres south-east of Freiburg’s city centre.
The summit of the Schauinsland is located in the district of Freiburg. The mountain is surrounded by towns such as Oberried, Munstertal, Bollschweil, and Horben . The closest village to the summit is Hofsgrund. In Autumn especially, during a temperature inversion, there is a clear view of the Vosges mountains from the top of the Schauinsland. Under appropriate weather conditions there is a view of a large portion of the Swiss Alps.
