Demanding climbs and rapid descents on steep mountain slopes surrounded by idyllic mountain lakes. The Black Forest is the perfect playground for mountain bikers and a paradise for nature lovers. The nine routes in this Collection take you along narrow single trails, through green forests and across colourful meadows. Enjoy the breathtaking mountain panorama, take a dip in shimmering mountain lakes and strengthen yourself with delicious Black Forest specialities. Whether you are an ambitious biker or going away with the whole family – the Black Forest welcomes you and your bike!

The nine routes in this Collection are totally different and offer the right level of difficulty for every taste. We have worked out various challenging half-day rides for you which allow you to up your elevation meters and get to know action-packed trails. The "summit trail", on the other hand, is perfect for a multi-day adventure spread out over several days, with plenty of cosy refreshments along the way. Our "Family Tour on the Southern Black Forest Cycle Route" is perfect for an active holiday with the whole family. Action and adventure – your kids will love it!

You can easily reach the Upper Black Forest by car or train. Freiburg is a great starting point for a stay in the area. Here urban flair, a great old town and many friendly accommodation options await you. From Freiburg, you can reach Titisee, Hinterzarten or Schluchsee with the regional train in no time, taking your bicycle with you. The train takes you directly to the start of many of the routes. In summer there are also cycle bus lines to Todtnau or Todtmoos, which will gladly take you and your bike. And of course, there are also many places to stay in the towns and cities of the Upper Black Forest. If you are looking for a quiet and tranquil getaway, you can set up your Black Forest base camp here.
