The Black Forest National Park
The Black Forest is a vast area covering hundreds of km. But only a small portion of it has been preserved as a National Park. The National Park is located between Baden-Baden and the town of Freudenstadt. Here you really get to see the real unmolested Black Forest, consisting of lush green forests and small trails covering around 10,000 hectares.
We have chosen trails that will take you through the National Park, where you might hike for hours without running into another person, while others skirt civilization so you can see Lake Mummelsee and have lunches at an authentic German Hütte (a hikers cabin).
A typical German experience: Stop at a local cabin for lunch
Germans like to hike. And part of the experience is lunch at a local Hütte. Stop in, have a drink, enjoy some local food. Then hike on. Don’t expect fine dining. A mountain Hütte usually serves hearty traditional foods that are especially satisfying when hiking all day
And just in case, we provide you with a daily lunch box so you have a back-up plan if hunger sets in and there is no convenient Hütte to stop at.
Hike & Ride
You will be far off the beaten path on our Baden-Baden Hike. Therefore it is necessary that you sometimes take a bus to the trail-head or from the trail to your hotel. But not worries! The bus rides are very scenic and short. We provide you with all details on which bus to take and where to get off. You will not be getting lost.
Good to Know: If you prefer a less remote experience with a little more city-life, have a look at our hikes in the Freiburg area, where we have some nice Shorter Trails.
