Germany’s Black Forest offers sensational views over wild romantic valleys and dense forests. The sweaty climb is always worth it as the reward of a magnificent panorama is second to none. After enjoying the view, you descend and tuck into a hearty Black Forest meal at a mountain inn in the midst of the picturesque landscape.

The trails in this Collection take you to the legendary Mummelsee lake, on an adventurous ridge walk and to the rustic Glasmännlehütte, perched at 777 metres (2,550 ft). Enjoy the view from the Belchen to the Vosges mountains, over the Swiss Alps or from the Jägersteig peak over the glittering Schluchsee lake. Of course, the highest peak in Baden–Württemberg, the Feldberg, is not to be missed too.

All of the foodie trails in the Black Forest are designated as premium trails by the German Hiking Institute. The varied routes lead away from roads and towns through unique nature, with its wild forests, meadows, gorges and valleys. You can expect wonderful half and full day Tours, which show you some of the region’s most beautiful places. They also include foodie highlights: spoil yourself with Baden wines and delicious regional Black Forest cuisine.

The Black Forest is easy to reach from all directions and you can catch the train to many of the trails. All other routes are located near bus stops or hiking car parks.

More and more people want to explore and experience the impressive nature in the Black Forest – whether on foot, by bike or on a mountain bike. But we, as humans, are only guests in the Black Forest – the animals and plants are our hosts. That's why nature lovers are expected to have #respectfornature, only then can we preserve the Black Forest in its beauty for years to come.

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