Wild and romantic forests stretching over wide hills with fragrant meadows nestled amongst the pines. High peaks with fantastic views and dramatic valley landscapes with hair-raising gorges. Turquoise blue lakes that glisten in the sun and impressive rocks that form unusual shapes that offer phenomenal views - this is what you can expect when hiking in the Black Forest.

The Black Forest has a variety of long-distance hiking trails to help you experience the diversity of this unique landscape. That is why we show you the six most beautiful long-distance hiking trails in the Black Forest in this collection of hikes. They are between three and twelve stages long. The multi-day hikes promise you wonderful nature, breathtaking views and lots of adventures.

The long-distance Black Forest hiking trails offer something for every taste. If you like lakes, then the Seensteig is for you. The ZweiTälerSteig, on the other hand, let’s you explore the Elz- and Simonswäldertal landscapes, whilst the Schluchtensteig leads you through exciting gorges with thundering waters. On the Albsteig and the Premiumweg Murgleiter, you hike along the rivers that give the gorge its name. If you would prefer to enjoy the diversity of the Black Forest on one hike, then the Westweg is for you. It takes you from the northern tip of the Black Forest to the very south.

No matter whether you want to spend several days on a long-distance hiking trail or walk the varied landscape in daily stages, in the Black Forest, the motto is “the path is the destination” - and it will certainly enchant you.
