The Black Forest — Cycling in the realm of the "Bollenhüte"
© Schwarzwald Tourismus
Legendary mountains, unique nature and dreamy villages. The Black Forest in its originality is not for nothing the most visited low mountain range in Germany. Here you will find everything your cyclist's heart desires. Breathtaking views, clear lakes and dense forests make every nature lover's heart beat faster, while well-developed cycle paths, a good rail network and the warm hospitality of Baden-Württemberg ensure that nothing stands in your way on the way.
We have put together a total of 16 bike tours in southwest Germany. Between Lörrach and Pforzheim, Rottweil and Offenburg there is guaranteed something for everyone: ambitious pedal knights, families or day trippers. Everyone will find their perfect tour. In addition, all tours are very varied. Sometimes you discover small, hidden villages, sometimes you cycle around cities full of cultural highlights. Or you can follow a rushing stream from the source to the lowlands and jump into a refreshing swimming lake. Huge forest areas, narrow valleys and promising vineyards are your constant companions.
It is now up to you to explore the beautiful region of the Black Forest. Over 320 towns and villages as well as the unique nature in the southwest are waiting to be discovered by you.
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.
