Wide meadows and fields, breathtaking views, rapid descents as well as true mountain passes and peaks – the Black Forest is a paradise for road cyclists. From challenging Tours over mountainous and hilly terrain to flat long-distance rides, the Black Forest offers all the elements that make up a perfect adventure on your road bike. In this Collection, we’ve put together the nine most beautiful road bike Tours in the Black Forest. The routes include suitable elevation gains for both beginners and experienced cyclists.

We’ve made sure that the mix of Tours in this Collection offers something for everyone – simply pick out the right route for you. To get you started, we’ve selected a few easy routes that have a relatively flat profile. If you like level terrain and going fast, then our routes through the Rhine plain and around Kaiserstuhl with their downhill stretches are perfect. Summiteers with a good level of fitness can take on tough challenges in the region’s high mountains that guarantee unforgettable experiences.

Of course, it's not only the time on your road bike that counts. You should also be able to fully relax after your Tour so make sure you’re fully rested for the next day. In the Black Forest, there are various resorts that make it their mission to ensure cyclists have a great holiday. In the quaint village centres, you can dine in cosy restaurants and explore the sights. The region is a wonderful place for cyclists – you’ll be wholeheartedly welcomed. So #aufgehts (let’s go) on a ride through the Black Forest!

More and more people want to explore and experience the impressive nature in the Black Forest, be it on foot, by road bike or on a mountain bike. However, we humans are only guests here – the animals and plants are our hosts. That’s why you should have #respectfornature wherever you go. Only with respect can we preserve the beauty of the Black Forest for generations to come.

You can find out more about the #respectfornature initiative on our profile komoot.de/user/schwarzwaldtourismus or at respekt-schwarzwald.info.
