Walking in the Black Forest

  • Walk through Germany's fairytale and enchanting Black Forest landscapes
  • The land of cuckoo clocks, cherry gateaux and charming gingerbread houses
  • Panoramic views from the top of Mt Feldberg, the Black Forest's highest peak
  • Bewitchingly beautiful woodland, blue mountain lakes and wildflower-covered meadows
  • Stay in the traditional historic and charming lakeside spa town of Titisee
Discover Germany's captivating Black Forest region with walks on an excellent network of well-waymarked trails that wind through wonderful woodland, deeply carved valleys and meadows carpeted with wild flowers. Many of the routes you follow will only be accessible on foot and you will be charmed by these landscapes which inspired the Brothers Grimm to write stories such as Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White and Hansel and Gretel. You will find the half-timbered houses and fairytale forest that are described in these stories on your daily walks, plus evidence of other traditional emblems of this region. Find local shops selling the the infamous handmade cuckoo clocks that they have made here since the 1730's and treat yourself to a rich cherry gateau, better known as "Black Forest Gateau" at the end of your day's walk sitting lakeside.
