If you believe that active holidays and relaxation belong together like two peas in a pod, then this three-day wellness hike in the Northern Black Forest is just right for you. This circular route leads from the spa town of Bad Liebenzell to Bad Wildbad and on to Bad Teinach. The focus is wellness, hiking and culinary pleasures.
During the day, you discover the beautiful nature of the Northern Black Forest as you hike 15 to 20 kilometres (9.3 to 12.4 miles) per hike. You follow lovely paths with just a few metres of altitude gain. In the evening, you can reward yourself with a relaxing thermal bath or sauna. After a day hiking in nature, you’ll enjoy a wellness evening even more – we promise. The warm hospitality and typical specialties of the region are the icing on the Black Forest cake. Forget your everyday stress and just enjoy yourself for three days.
A good 50 kilometres (31 miles) long, the wellness hike through the Northern Black Forest is divided into three stages. The hiking trail is laid out as a loop, so you can start at any of the three stage destinations. In this Collection, Bad Liebenzell is your starting point. You hike through the varied nature and the dense fir forest along narrow paths and wide forest trails.
Along the way, you can expect wonderful views, beautiful resting places and historical sites. You can find cosy accommodation in the three spa towns en route – Bad Wildbad, Bad Teinach, and Bad Liebenzell. Your evening wellness programme is also well catered for as all three towns offer a thermal bath with pleasantly warm water – a great place for tired hikers to relax. That’s a good way to live, right?
You can reach the starting point of the Tour comfortably by train. Bad Liebenzell has rail connections to Pforzheim, from where you can travel to Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. If you only want to do part of the wellness hike, you can also travel from the individual stage destinations back to Pforzheim with public transport. For utmost convenience, you can book our complete package so you don’t have to worry about individual accommodation and can fully concentrate on your short wellness break. Look forward to three relaxing days in the Northern Black Forest – forest pool and whirlpool included!
