Magnificent views, fresh forest air, babbling brooks and excellent food – the Black Forest is a treat for all the senses. A variety of hiking trails and paths crisscross Germany's largest low mountain range and its unspoiled nature. You hike through dense forests to sunny vantage points or walk along narrow rivers through mystical gorges. You can jump into the cool water of a crystal-clear lake and admire the far-reaching views from the rocky peaks all the way to the Alps. The Black Forest is known for its dreamlike landscape in Germany and beyond for good reason.

In this Collection, we present 23 of the 46 Genießerpfade (themed enjoyment trails) in the Black Forest, all of which are certified as premium hiking trails. Far away from roads, you hike along soft, natural paths. The wonderful nature here is not the only thing you can look forward to. The Black Forest also has wonderful culinary specialties served in traditional inns, cozy cafes, small farm shops and ‘Schnapsbrünnele’ throughout the forest. You hike through pretty landscapes to cultural sights such as impressive castle ruins, well-known health resorts and half-timbered villages decorated with flowers.

Most of the Genießerpfade are laid out as circular routes. If not, you can easily return to the starting point with public transport. Each of the 46 hikes is well signposted and varies in length and difficulty – it’s easy to find your own personal favourite trail here.

By the way, you can find the rest of the Genießerpfade here: komoot.de/collection/1107030

More and more people are heading to the Black Forest to explore and experience its impressive nature – whether on foot, by bike or mountain bike. But, as humans, we are only guests in the Black Forest. The animals and plants are our hosts. All nature lovers should have #respectfornature as only then can we preserve the beauty of the Black Forest for future generations.

You can find out more about the #respectfornature initiative on our profile: komoot.de/user/schwarzwaldtourismus or at respekt-schwarzwald.info (website in German only).
