Holidays in the Black Forest

Location and orientation

Germany's largest low mountain range

The Black Forest is the largest and highest continuous low mountain range in Germany. It lies in the southwest of Baden-Württemberg, the southern border forms the Hochrhein. In the north the Black Forest extends as far as Kraichgau, in the west as far as the Upper Rhine Plain. In the east the low mountain range borders the Klettgau. From north to south the area measures about 150 kilometres, from east to west up to 60 kilometres. The highest elevation is the Feldberg with 1493 meters.

Wooded north, high peaks in the south

The Black Forest is divided into three scenic regions: The northern Black Forest, with the upper centre Pforzheim, is the most densely wooded area of the low mountain range. The centrepiece is the rather flat Middle Black Forest, which includes parts of the Upper Black Forest and the Black Forest Nature Park. The highest peaks rise in the southern Black Forest, including the Feldberg, the 1414 metre high Belchen and the 1284 metre high Schauinsland.

The Romans were the ones who gave the Black Forest its name: The forest was so unfathomable and dark, they called it Silva Nigra - Black Forest.

The Black Forest for hikers

Almost 24,000 kilometres of signposted hiking trails lead through the more than 11,000 square metre Black Forest holiday region. These include long-distance hiking trails such as the Westweg, which runs over 285 kilometres from Pforzheim to Basel. The 119-kilometer-long Schluchtensteig (gorge trail) runs through the Southern Black Forest Nature Park. On adventure hiking trails and pleasure trails, hikers pass waterfalls or old shepherd paths. The Gernsbach Legend Trail leads past the scenes of old folk tales.

The Black Forest for families

The Black Forest is a very family-friendly holiday region. From your own holiday home, for example, you can go on special family bike tours through the low mountain range landscape. Young and old hikers can also discover a lot on the numerous theme trails: On the forest adventure trail you get to know the forest better, on the fruit nature trail you pass many informative information boards through the fruit growing areas of the region, while the wine nature trail, as the name suggests, leads through the Black Forest vineyards.
The numerous mountain lakes in the surrounding area offer a wonderful opportunity to cool off in summer. For particularly active families, it can also be worth buying a Hochschwarzwald Card, which gives you free access to over a hundred leisure activities every day. A popular form of accommodation for families with small children is also the farm.

The Black Forest with dog

In the apartment in the Black Forest, the family dog can usually feel at home. The many hiking trails offer the four-legged friends excellent opportunities to let off steam. At the Schluchsee there is even an own dog beach. In the forest, however, you should always keep dogs on a leash, especially during the closed season. It is best to contact the landlord before your arrival and register your four-legged friend already.

Top 5 travel tips

1. To the waterport at the Titisee

In the southern Black Forest lies the 1.3 square kilometre Titisee, right next to the town of Titisee-Neustadt, surrounded by forests and mountains. The lake, about 20 metres deep, was created from the Feldberg glacier. In summer, windsurfers and divers meet at Lake Titisee. Anglers fish here for zander, sea trout and pike.

2. Challenging happiness in Baden-Baden

A popular destination for a holiday in the Black Forest is the health resort of Baden-Baden. During the day, you can take advantage of the numerous wellness offers in the thermal baths, some of which were already used by the Romans. In the evening we go to the casino in the Kurhaus of Baden-Baden. In a sophisticated atmosphere, visitors can challenge their luck here.

3. The Benedictine monastery St. Blasien

In the district of Waldshut lies the Benedictine monastery of St. Blasien. Already in the 9th century there was an abbey at its present location. After the old buildings were destroyed in several wars, they were rebuilt in the baroque and neoclassical style in the 18th century. With its magnificent interior, the monastery, and especially the cathedral with its impressive ceiling painting, attracts numerous visitors. Today the monastery also functions as a Jesuit-led grammar school with an affiliated boarding school.

4. The Triberg waterfalls

The Triberg waterfalls are located near Triberg in the Black Forest. The water pours over the rocks from a height of 163 metres. This makes the Triberg Waterfalls one of the highest in Germany and a popular sight to see. The upper falls are 872 to 856 metres above sea level, the main seven-stage falls range from about 805 to 713 metres above sea level.

5 The Alemannic Fasnet in the Black Forest

In the Black Forest, the fifth season begins on 6 January. Until Ash Wednesday many towns and villages celebrate the traditional Alemannic Fasnet.

From a holiday apartment in Offenburg or Gengenbach you can admire dressed up figures with traditional wood larvae, special masks.
