Your rucksack is packed and your hiking boots are tied. You are ready for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Baiersbronn Seensteig Lake Trail is the perfect destination to find peace and quiet. You will walk through Germany’s sprawling Black Forest, discovering karst lakes, mountain peaks, and stunning nature. Most of all, you will find solitude once more.
This long-distance hiking trail leads you through the walkers’ paradise that is Baiersbronn region in 5 stages. The trail leads you along forest streams and through high moorland meadows that characterise the Northern Black Forest landscape. The route is a designated Quality High Trail, a title given to only the best paths in the country. As you walk along completely untouched, natural paths, it is easy to see why. You will lose yourself in the beautiful nature here.
The region is not just rich in diverse nature, but history too. The educational trail illustrates how Hurricane Lothar devastated the Black Forest in 1999. Look out for hidden waterfalls and corrie lakes found where glaciers would once have lain. To enjoy the lofty heights and idyllic mountain summits en route, you should be in good shape.
Located in the border triangle to Switzerland and France in the southwest of Germany, the Black Forest is easy to reach from all over Europe by car or public transport. You should also book your accommodation in the region in advance. You can find comfortable accommodation options in the villages on or near the route.

More and more people want to explore and experience the impressive nature in the Black Forest — whether by hiking, by cycling or on a mountain bike. But we as humans are only guests here in the Black Forest — and the animals and plants are our hosts. That's why #RespectForNature is mandatory for all nature lovers, because only with respect we'll preserve the Black Forest in its beauty for our descendants.
