One of the most beautiful parts of a hike is the moment you arrive at the top after a tough ascent and a fantastic view unfolds in front of you. The lookout towers in the Black Forest make this wonder even better. With every step up you see more of the landscape, with every metre of altitude the horizon moves further into the distance.
These gourmet trails take you to the Feldberg, the highest peak in Baden-Württemberg, and to the Hornisgrinde, which towers above all other mountains in the northern Black Forest. All Tours promise magnificent views across the Black Forest to the Rhine Valley and even to the Vosges and the Alps.
Each of these trails have been awarded premium status by the German Hiking Institute. They’re varied and lead you away from roads and towns through unique landscapes with wild and romantic forests, meadows, gorges and valleys. You can expect wonderful half- and full-day Tours that show you some of the most beautiful places in the area. They also take you to the culinary highlights of the region: indulge in Baden wines and delicious regional Black Forest cuisine.
The Black Forest is easy to reach from all directions. Some of the gourmet trails can be easily reached by train, too. All other routes are close to bus stops or hikers' car parks, where you can start your adventure straightaway.
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.
