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 the whole set-up reminds me of the 70s.
