About Nationalpark Schwarzwald

Der Nationalpark Schwarzwald zieht sich zwischen Baden-Baden und Freudenstadt auf dem Höhenrücken des Nordschwarzwaldes entlang. Herrliche Fernblicke in die Rheinebene bis nach Frankreich hinüber und über die Hügelketten des Schwarzwaldes verleihen ihm einen unvergleichlichen Charakter.Dunkle Wälder, idyllisch gelegene Täler, friedlich ruhende Karseen, Moore, schroffe Felswände und baumfreie Bergrücken, die Grinden, bieten Lebensraum für Auerhuhn, Kreuzotter und viele andere zum Teil seltene Arten. Kein Wunder, dass hier der schnellste Vogel der Welt, der Wanderfalke, ebenso zu Hause ist wie die kleinste Eule Europas, der Sperlingskauz.

      The tour to the Seekopf starts at the Ruhestein and leads in serpentines over the ski slope up to the mountain station. Over a total length of 1.1 kilometers, the finely graveled, wide driveway climbs a total of 95 meters (gradient: approx. Ten percent). From the mountain station of the chairlift, the path only climbs slightly (three to
      six percent, height difference 30 meters), so that it is easily accessible with a stroller or wheelchair.
      As an alternative to the ascent via the serpentines, the
      Chairlift can be used. Wheelchair users can drive directly to the entrance
      of the lift, where there is a signposted parking lot. The staff at the chairlift will be happy to help with getting in and out
      Exit. However, prior registration is essential
      necessary (Tel. 07449 91054; info@skilift-ruhestein.de,
      skilift-ruhestein.de).
      Once at the top you first drive through an open
      Heathland interspersed with mountain pines. Later
      you get to one of the core zones of the national park. Here
      no tree has been felled since 1911. For more
      than 100 years of free development can be seen here steadily
      admire the growing wilderness. At the Eutinggrab offers itself
      a wonderful view over the Schönmünztal
      the wild lake. Here is the turning point of the tour.

      On the ridge of the northern Black Forest, this tour leads over high pastures and lovely heather areas. When the weather is clear, there are wonderful views over the mountain ranges of the Black Forest and the Rhine plain. The sunsets are particularly atmospheric here. After 180 meters, the almost level path reaches a viewing platform with a wooden ramp (gradient approx. Twelve percent). For a length of five kilometers, the path in the direction of Ruhestein then continues along the 1000 meter contour line. With only slight inclines (three to seven percent) there are many beautiful views.From the vantage point with a view of the Karlsruher Grat, it is advisable to turn around again in a wheelchair, as the last section of the path to the Ruhestein goes very steeply downhill and crosses the road at a point that is difficult to see.
      The direct route from the Schliffkopf Hotel to the summit is not wheelchair accessible, but can be used with a strong companion or an appropriate pulling aid or with a stroller.

      On the hike through the Tonbachtal, meadows and pastures alternate with unspoilt forests.From the large parking lot in Tonbach, the path leads across the quiet valley. Some of the narrow paths take you to the deer enclosure, which encompasses the floodplains on both sides of the stream with the adjacent slopes.There you can see deer in their natural habitat. At the edge of the enclosure you will see a wooden hut for feeding the deer, which the national park team built in a classic half-timbered style. A ranger station can be found at the turning point of the tour.
      TIP: The valley is particularly calm in the morning hours and nature can be enjoyed with all your senses.

      This circular route takes you into the quiet valley of the Huzenbacher See and up into the wild core zone of the national park. The Huzenbacher See is one of the typical cirque lakes in the northern Black Forest. You first hike into the small valley that was carved out by a glacier in ancient times - to the lake, which is surrounded by a steep Karwand. From there it goes up the steep slope, with many beautiful views. Here you cross the core zone of the national park, where nature can go wild again. Then it goes through the Tobelwald back to
      Parking lot for hikers.
      There are no places to stop for a break on the tour. A rucksack should therefore be packed.
      TIP: During the pond rose bloom in May and June, the lake shines particularly impressively.
      Variant Schönmünzach: If you want to travel by bus and train and plan a day tour, you can alternatively from
      Schönmünzach station over the Seensteig in the direction of the parking lot and from there hike on to the lake.

      From the parking lot at the Schliffkopf Hotel you hike on this circular route through mountain heaths and unspoilt forests. On the way there are wonderful distant views over the blue-green Black Forest hills to the Rhine valley.The heathland with mountain pines, blueberries and grasses that you cross is called Grinden in the Black Forest. They are a special feature of the Black Forest National Park and an important habitat for many rare species such as capercaillie, tree pipit, alpine mountain grasshopper or adder.On the summit of the Schliffkopf, at 1000 meters, you can experience this special landscape particularly well - very atmospheric even at dusk.

      From the Allerheiligen monastery ruin you hike through unspoilt mixed forests and on narrow rock paths along the largest, natural waterfall in the northern Black Forest. The Lierbach eats its way through granite in All Saints' Day and falls a total of 66 meters.The gorge's 100-meter-high walls glow deep green from the moist, shiny moss. There are many legends surrounding the ruins of the monastery and the unspoilt mountain forest of the gorge slope, some of which you can find out along the way.
      There is a clear view through the gorge from the angel's pulpit above the waterfalls.
      Finally, a wider path leads back to the monastery courtyard via many steps. The last section of the upper gorge is also accessible with a stroller. The national park team regularly offers guided hikes along the waterfalls.

      This varied circular route leads through meadows and forests from the Ruhestein National Park Center. A detour to Brennter Schrofen from Bosensteiner Eck is worthwhile, from where there are views of the spa town of Ottenhöfen. Below the Vogelskopf, you can look across the Rhine plain to the Vosges. Later the Hornisgrinde appears in the distance.Karlsruhe ridge variant: If you want to discover the most demanding hiking area in the Black Forest, you can hike from Gasthof Bosenstein to the Karlsruhe ridge. This beautiful via ferrata in the northern Black Forest over the rocky ridge should only be climbed by people with a head for heights with good shoes.Alternatively, the easier neighboring path to the Ottenhöfen train station is available. Here you can walk past other beautiful viewpoints and interesting rock formations.
      In summer, a bus runs from the train station back to the Ruhestein National Park Center.

      A heart of the national park can be explored with this varied circular route.From the Ruhestein National Park Center you hike over the pastures on the ski slope up to the Grinden on the Seekopf. There you will enter Baden-Württemberg's oldest spell forest, which has not been managed for more than a hundred years and is now part of the core area of the national park.The "Wilde See" lies like a dark eye embedded in the wide and calm Schönmünztal. Pristine tree shapes give an idea of where the other national park forests could develop. A broad path with beautiful views of the Rhine valley leads back to the National Park Center.
      This tour is also regularly offered by the National Park staff as a guide.

      This circular route takes you through dark forests through part of the forest nature trail and the Herrenwieser Sattel to the Badener Höhe, which is around 1,000 meters high.The second highest mountain in the northern part of the national park has always been a popular destination. Until the beginning of the 20th century, it was grazed with cattle. In 1999, hurricane "Lothar" also deforested larger areas. So
      areas and heaths rich in deadwood were created, in the Black Forest they are called Grinden (high German: bald).
      When the weather is clear, you can enjoy a wide view from the observation tower over a sea of trees, with a little luck even to the Vosges.
