Hiking The Black Forest Germany

Introducing The Black Forest Trail

I am very excited to announce the latest addition to our hiking packages – the Black Forest Trail. As our repeat customers know, we have offered the Red Deer Trail for several years. It has been a very popular package for serious hikers seeking to really immerse themselves in nature. But 5 days of long trails was too much for many of you, who wanted something shorter and not so remote. You still wanted the convenience of luggage transport to your next hotel, and you still wanted nice accommodations. I heard you! And after searching for the perfect alternative, I think I have assembled the perfect hiking package. I certainly have enjoyed putting it together for you. My Black Forest Trail Hike run partially along a section of the famous Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage trail (in Spain), which is pretty cool. While seeking that perfect balance of nature, food, accommodations, I have woven together some other fantastic trails and short-cuts that were either more beautiful or included some fantastic features; like Schnapps fountains and cozy Gasthaus-Restaurants. …

Lakes in the Black Forest

Today is probably not the best day to give a quick overview on some of the lakes in the Black Forest – considering that we are in the middle of fall! The first snow is here and Feldberg is covered in 15 cm of white fluffy snow. But why not start dreaming of hot summer days to spend on the shore of a nice cool lake? So here we go: If you’ve visited the Black Forest already, there is a pretty high chance that you’ve been to lake Titisee.  Being the largest natural lake, Titisee is THE hot spot in the Black Forest – a high altitude spa resort with plenty of fancy hotels catering to anyone seeking wellness, relaxation and the outdoors. My absolute favorite lake in this area is Lake Schlüchtsee. It’s located very close to Lake Schluchsee (and the Rothaus brewery!) but very small in comparison. Half of the lake is closed off to swimmers due to the presence of a nature reservoir. I love this lake – it’s small, clean, and …
