In this Collection, we introduce you to ten premium hiking trails that show you the unique region in southern Germany from its most beautiful side.

The ten hikes offer a lot of variety: you can choose between different difficulty levels and lengths depending on your mood. You will follow narrow paths and walk over small bridges, past refreshing waterfalls and idyllic lakes, through deep gorges and past quaint Black Forest farms. Despite the varied landscapes, they all have one thing in common: stunning views. A highlight – in the literal sense of the word – is the 4898 feet (1493 meter) high Feldberg ascent, the highest mountain in the Black Forest.

You can easily reach the starting points of the hikes by bus and train. If you are planning a longer stay in the Black Forest then you can set up your base camp in Todtnau or Hinterzarten. Along almost all hiking trails, you will find refreshment stops along the way, or at least at the end of your hike. If you prefer to take your own snacks with you, you'll find plenty of nice rest areas along the way. The infrastructure for hikers in the Black Forest is excellent.

    Namesake for this trail is the village policeman Thomas Steiert. He announced the latest news in Hinterzarten in the mid-19th century. And since he always carried a saber as a guardian, he was popularly called Saber Thoma. On this eleven kilometer long hiking trail you follow its tracks. The gourmet trail with starting point in Hinterzarten leads to worth seeing viewpoints. In addition, panels along the way tell village stories from ancient times, which probably already knew the saber-tom.
