Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    Even the way to the Ravenna gorge is packed with highlights. Past old saws, mills and at the rope factory one passes here already a lot of highlights. Arrived at the Ravenna gorge, it is definitely one of the most beautiful in the Black Forest. In the summer, the firs give pleasant shade. In winter, there is also a romantic Christmas market in the Black Forest setting. So immerse yourself in a spectacular winter landscape, where you can warm yourself up with punch and biscuits afterwards. Increase the anticipation of Christmas included!

    Opening hours:
    Ravanna gorge: all year round
    admission free

    Christmas market: On Advent weekends Friday, Saturday and Sunday
    Entry:
    Adults € 3.50
    Children € 3,00

  • The Ravenna gorge is a gorge in the Black Forest. It is a narrow side valley of the Hell Valley, through which the stream Ravenna flows and draws a hiking trail; The path is part of the home-town Hochschwarzwald. The approximately 4 km long gorge leads from the Höllental to the higher situated community Breitnau, to the Gemarkung it also belongs. The name of the gorge probably derives from the French ravine for gorge. [1]

    The wild creek Ravenna offers on the section through the valley several waterfalls. The two largest are the large Ravenna case with 16 m and the small Ravenna case with 6 m drop height.

    The creek once provided space for several mills. Some of these can still be found today in the Ravenna gorge and some are well preserved. At the top of the gorge is the Großjocken mill from 1883, which is a listed building. What is remarkable about this mill is that due to the great gradient of the Ravenna, the water is directed through the roof of the mill onto the water wheel.

    In the lower area the gorge is crossed by the 37 m high Ravenna Bridge, the viaduct of the Höllentalbahn. There are also the St. Oswald Chapel (built in 1148) and the Hofgut Sternen, where Marie Antoinette stayed in 1770 and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in 1779.

  • The Ravenna gorge is the hiking highlight for hot days. If it is 35 degrees in Freiburg, it is still shady and pleasant here. Ideal for children, because the trail is exciting and can be played in some places by the stream.

  • Wow. What a nice little, just 3km short gorge. The most beautiful it comes to advantage when it has rained properly and the sun comes through, but even in warm and dry weather, this is a destination for a small round of nature and a little bit of Black Forest history.

  • In a unique atmosphere at the entrance to the Ravenna gorge in Höllental on the four Advent weekends and three long Fridays the wild romantic Christmas market takes place in the Ravenna gorge.

  • A still well-preserved railway bridge with interesting architectural style. In winter we built the Christmas market under this bridge.

  • Nice spot in the Black Forest. But you should only avoid the weekends and do not be put off by the tourist buses. As a rule, they are not coming to the forest anyway.

  • A little above the large waterfall - there is the somewhat smaller waterfall.

  • It's best to come over here in the week. At the weekend here is a lot going on and you are rather pushed through the gorge with the tourists.

  • The Ravenna Bridge: 144 m long and almost 40 m high. Very impressive. There is a Christmas market on Advent Sundays and the bridge is illuminated in different colors.

  • A beautiful gorge. Was on the hot days a soothing retreat from the high temperatures. 😅

  • Under the mighty railway aqueduct, the path leads to Ravenna gorge. Past a historic wood saw. In the gorge itself, the path leads over some stairs and walkways along the stream always moderately uphill. At the time of my existence, it was pleasantly cool in the hot summer temperatures. Passing by some small stone pyramids you have already left the gorge behind.

  • The Ravenna gorge is a worthwhile destination. The starting point, the Hofgut Sternen (the parking lots that belong to Hofgut are chargeable, but there are a number of free parking above the bus parking) in Höllental is one of the tourist highlights in the Black Forest and there are the inmates of various coaches around the various Outlets and restaurants. Once you have gone uphill for 100 meters, it will be quiet. The way up the canyon is not difficult to walk and beautiful. Those who are not really sure-footed and free from giddiness should return to the car park through the gorge. We had planned a circular route, which turned out to be a very narrow, barely negotiated precipitous zig-zag trail on a steep slope and thus not suitable for everyone.

  • The Ravenna Gorge is a great highlight that should definitely be visited... a beautiful hiking trail, a lot to discover and countless great photo opportunities. Worth it!
    If you are there early in the morning or late in the evening, you can enjoy nature here almost alone.

  • I personally found a very beautiful gorge that ends with the Ravenna Viaduct, but dogs should not be afraid of narrow, steep and narrow wooden stairs (our direction downhill)
