The Black Forest is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Germany. Known for its evergreen forests, mountain hiking trails and breathtaking waterfalls, the Black Forest is perfect for weekend breaks in Freiburg.
The Black Forest
Standing at over 1,400 meters tall, the Feldberg is the highest mountain in the Black Forest. The Feldbergbahn takes visitors close to the summit, with panoramic views of Baden. During the summer the Feldberg becomes part of a high-altitude hiking route, and in winter skiers and snowboarders flock to over 16 ski slopes across the peaks.
Take a tour of Titisee Lake in Titisee-Neustadt and enjoy long walks on the shore next to the glistening lake. If you're looking to cool off after a day in the sun at Titisee, jump into the pool at the lido and dry off on the lawn.
The Triberg Waterfalls
The Triberg Falls are the highest waterfalls in Germany and a must-see on any trip to the Black Forest. Made up of over seven cascades across scenic forestland, the falls are an awe-inspiring sight no matter what time of year you're visiting.
Hell Valley (Höllental)
Hell Valley (Höllental) takes its name for the subterranean-like setting at the valley’s lowest point. But don’t let the name fool you, Hell Valley is a place of great natural beauty with staggering 600-meter high rock cliffs, gorges and scenic waterfalls.
Hexenloch Mill is a historic mill between St. Märgen and Furtwangen, and the only mill in the Black Forest with two water wheels. Hexenloch Mill has a long history of clockmaking and today it’s a great place to buy cuckoo clocks and other souvenirs.
