Dense treetops sway in the gentle wind, the sun warms the forest floor and a wonderful scent of warm pine needles is in the air – hiking around Bad Peterstal-Griesbach in the heart of the Black Forest offer dreamy nature far away from hectic daily life. Here, you can marvel at impressive red sandstone rock formations, cascading waterfalls and crystal clear lakes. Grow-ups can enjoy the schnapps and drinking fountains en route, whilst the little ones can let off steam of the discovery trails. To ensure that your feet are comfortable, there is a LOWA test centre offering free hiking book rental. You can borrow all the outdoor equipment you may need here. Hiking doesn’t get more comfortable than this!

In this Collection, we present the four trails of the Black Forest Hiking Symphony, peppered with six additional intermezzos that take you to unique places in the Renchtal valley. Discover fabulous mountain lakes, hike along romantic paths, rest your tired legs on a sky lounger and refresh yourself at the numerous fountains in the region. There is plenty of idyll to look forward to in the Black Forest.

You can hike in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach all year round. It’s especially beautiful during the warmer months, when nature blooms in colour. In summer, the charming drink stations dotted along the way are always well filled. However, the Black Forest also has its charms in winter when it’s blanketed in snow. The hiking trails through the Renchtal valley are well developed and signposted. You’ll be surprised by how varied the trails here are.

You can easily reach Bad Peterstal-Griesbach by train from Offenburg. There’s a large selection of accommodations and restaurants in the town. If you have any questions about the region, head to the tourist information centre near the town hall in Bad Peterstal. If you want to really slow down, we have a special tip for you: Meditation hiking – to experience nature in a completely ‘adagio’ way.
