With postcard-like panoramas, wide plateaus, rocks, and wooded valleys, the Black Forest is an idyllic backdrop for a hiking holiday. The town of Schramberg and the surrounding area is an ideal base for easy or challenging hikes. The six Schramberg districts of Tennenbronn, Heiligenbronn, Sulgen, Waldmössingen, Schönbronn, and the valley town on the Schiltach offer something for everyone. Feel the mountain air on your cheeks as you hike to panoramic rocks and enchanted castle ruins or enjoy a relaxed family hike along an education trail across a picturesque plateau.

The nine exciting Tours in this Collection showcase Schramberg's diverse landscapes in the heart of the Black Forest as well as views that stretch as far as the Swabian Jura. Three of the more challenging Tours take you from low down to the very top as you hike up the Schramberg Castle Trail and the Sonnenberg peak, or ascend up the Berneck Valley. These hikes require a good level of fitness but they offer a great reward – breathtaking views and imposing castle ruins.

For a more relaxed hike, you can walk a loop around the Heiligenbronn pilgrimage site, hike across the plateau around Paradiesberg mountain, and explore the typical Black Forest scenery along the tranquil Eselbach River. You can snap away on your camera on the way to the Käppele, a lovingly restored farm. If you are looking for a bigger challenge, the route to the windmill is ideal. Once there, you can treat yourself to a delicious sundae in the inn. If you’re hiking with your family, you can learn all there is to know about Europe’s largest chicken on the wood grouse trail. You’ll find lots of nice places to relax along the way.

Whichever beautiful Tour you decide on, all of the hikes end at the same point, so you don't have to worry about the time and how to return home. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
