Hiking Tours in The Black Forest of Germany, Our Tours

Hiking Tours

The Black Forest is not what the English name suggests. It is not a single forest, but rather it is the name given to the mountainous region 100 miles north to south and 45 miles east to west. About 60% of the land is forest. This forested area is generally 1500 feet above sea level, with the highest mountain peaks just under 5000 feet. Germans claim that ‘hiking was invented in the Black Forest‘ in the mid-1800s. We don’t know if that’s really true, but we do know that the Black Forest offers some of the finest hiking in Europe. The length of all trails combined is some 23,000 kilometres. They are ideal for short day hikes with the family as well as challenging long-distance multi-day routes.
