Fantastic views over forests and hills, a perfect network of paths, cultural sites and great food – the quality hikes in the Black Forest in Germany make for a great adventure. With hidden witches’ cottages, gently rolling hills, tempting Schnapps fountains, and untouched nature, it is easy to understand why the routes here were given the “Wanderbares Deutschland” seal of approval by the German Ramblers’ Association.

The 16 varied routes in this Collection reveal the most beautiful corners of the Black Forest. You can hike along the Maisacher Tumsteig mountain ridge in the heart of the Black Forest, enjoy sweeping panoramas in the Krottenbachtal Valley in the south, and let your kids run wild in nature on the Wildcat Trail near the town of Bad Herrenalb in the north. For those of you who like a challenge, there are plenty of metres to climb on a summit hike in Simonswald.

As the trails are signposted throughout, you can leave your compass at home for all hikes. Some of the hikes are demanding at times, but you have plenty of opportunities to stop for a rest at an inn and tuck into a hearty schnitzel, freshly-caught trout, or delicious cake.

All that is left is to decide upon a hike whether you are looking for family fun, cultural exploration, or untouched nature. Whatever you decide, you can look forward to a care-free hike through the idyllic Black Forest.

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 respekt-schwarzwald.info.
