Paradise Walk

Our Paradise Walk runs along the foothills of the Black Forest. We have designed this walking tour so you can experience the beautiful valleys and towns of this area. You spend your evenings in family-owned hotels, located in small Black Forest towns, with plenty of good restaurants and wineries. We provide orientation to the towns, so you can explore in the evenings.  This area is a bit off-the-beaten path and you will really tour like a local. You will always stay close to towns, often walking through them. We show you the must-see vistas, waterfalls undiscovered by the crowds, and local eateries not in any travel books. We even tell you where to find a local schnapps-fountain where the farmer keeps his privately distilled liquor cool for you to sample while stopping by. If you are lucky you will even happen upon a wine festival. Is this a good walk for me? Our Paradise Walk is a good walking holiday if you are looking for fairly easy walks with limited elevation. The hotels are located in typical small Black …
