    Not to be confused with the grandfather fir standing a little further, but just as impressive

    Good access from the street and the small parking lot. On the way explanations on the history of forest use and industry / agriculture.

    The explanation panel near the grandfather fir in the city forest of Freudenstadt proclaims that this is the largest fir in the Black Forest. It is striking how much bigger the big-tree fir is compared to the trees in the area. Also, the explanation panel has a response at the grandfather. On the Schöllkopf, where there is now forest throughout, there used to be a farm, the Schöllkopfhof. The today's Großvatertanne was formerly a Weidtanne, thus a single standing tree in a meadow. The other trees in the area were planted much later, after the Schöllkopfhof had been abandoned.

    The most powerful fir in the Black Forest is located between Freudenstadt and Lossburg-Ödenwald / Schömberg and is affectionately called "Großvatertanne". Its height is about 47 meters, the trunk diameter at chest height measures 155 cm, circumference 5.30 m, and it brings it to a stately wood mass of 46.5 feet. At 805 m above sea level, it has stood on its red sandstone plateau for about 300 years.
    From the city center Freudenstadt it is about 4 km (50 minutes walk) to the Großvatertanne, 30 minutes walk from Kienberg or 1.5 km (15 minutes) from the trail parking lot Lauferbrunnen (Schömberger road direction Schömberg / Bad Rippoldsau).

    For a fir tree really strong diameter at chest height 1.65 m. You do not see anything like that in the forest every day. The way is worth it.

    Great view from the Bärbank on the "grandfather fir". How powerful this tree actually is can only really be seen when you stand directly in front of it.
