Winter in the Black Forest offers snow-covered natural experiences in a class of their own. Whether you climb up to the Herzogenhorn on snowshoes, explore winter spruce forests on forest paths, enjoy the view over snow-covered mountain meadows or warm up in a cozy mountain hut with a cup of mulled wine — in Germany's highest low mountain range, you will experience a winter like in a fairy tale.

We have selected five exciting snowshoe hikes and three wonderful winter hikes on which you can discover the sleepy nature of the Black Forest. The two two-day snowshoe hikes are a special Highlight because, with an overnight stay in the Krunkelbachhütte or a bivouac night on the summit of the Blößlings, you can get even closer to nature. If you want to take it easier, then stroll on the winter hikes on cleared paths, wander through snow-covered mountain forests and visit cozy huts.

On your snowshoe hikes, be sure to consider the following: The hikes take you off the beaten track across dense snow-covered mountain meadows and through deep forests. In addition to winterproof clothing, good orientation and weather knowledge are mandatory in any case. In addition, a charged mobile phone with offline maps and a GPS navigation device belong in your rucksack. Keep in mind that in winter, accumulators and batteries run out faster. Therefore, it is best to pack a power bank or sufficient spare batteries. If you're not an experienced snowshoe hiker but are still interested in this unique outdoor experience, you can also take part in a guided hike. Together with the experienced hiking guides, you can learn more about the nature and landscape of the Black Forest.

Just browse through our hikes and let yourself be inspired for your personal winter experience in the Black Forest. You can find even more winter hikes and snowshoe hikes at hochschwarzwald.de.
