© Schwarzwald Tourismus
With endless, well-marked trails, Germany's highest low mountain range is a haven for mountain bikers. In this Collection, we’ll show you the best mountain bike hotspots in the Black Forest in central Germany. You can ride in bike parks and trail centres where world-class biking events have taken place. With spectacular vantage points and countless places to stop for a bite to eat, we’re sure you’ll have fun on the trails. We present our favourite routes in the area from exciting trails, to challenging day rides, as well as two tough multi-day Tours which take you to the most remote MTB corners in the Black Forest.
The ten MTB routes in this Collection reveal the Black Forest from every side; idyllic lakes framed by picturesque hilly landscapes, lush meadows, wild and romantic valleys, mysterious forests and magnificent vantage points, as well as cozy farmhouses, artistic cuckoo clocks and, of course, the world-famous Black Forest cherry cake.
With quaint villages and friendly accommodation, the Black Forest has great infrastructure to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Look out for the special offers for bikers, too. You’ll soon understand why the Black Forest is one of the most popular biking areas in Germany!
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.
You can find out more about the #RespectForNature initiative on our profile page komoot.com/user/schwarzwaldtourismus or at schwarzwald-tourismus.info/erleben/wandern/respekt.
On the second day of the Hochschwarzwald summit trail, around 50 kilometers await you. From Todtnau you drive via Schluchsee to Rothaus. It is worth packing your bathing suit here: on summer tours it is a pleasure to jump into the cool water of the Schluchsee on the way. In the evening you can get to know the regional art of brewing extensively on a tour of the Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus.

Today's second stage of the four-lake tour is the easier of the two with just under 29 kilometers and only 420 meters of altitude. Today you will reach the Titisee, which completes the refreshing quartet of lakes and invites you to a hearty break with a nice mixture of hustle and bustle before you start your way back to Schluchsee.
For the 21st time, the Black Forest Ultra Bike Marathon will take place in 2019, at the longest distance of which the bikers will destroy 114 kilometers and 3,170 vertical meters. This tour is significantly shorter at 33 kilometers and promises beautiful trails and fantastic views as well as various opportunities for leisurely breaks with rustic refreshments. A bit of stamina can not hurt this round - technically, however, basic knowledge is completely sufficient.
The Offenburg Worldclass MTB Challenge was an institution in the marathon scene for seven years in a row. Launched by former bike professional Jörg Scheiderbauer, the race attracted around 2,000 starters to the Black Forest every year and was even part of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. A real knighthood for this region and impressive proof that you can really bike here.
