Cycling the Southern Black Forest

The Southern Black Forest Tour is surprisingly relaxed. You cycle past typical Black Forest farms with low-hanging roofs that nestle close to forested, green mountains. On this roundtrip tour from Freiburg you overcome most altitude metres by train and often enjoy rolling downhill. Easy and relaxed!

Great bicycle tour if you like a combination of touristy sights (Lake Titisee), thermal baths, wine tastings, a night in Germany’s sunniest town (Freiburg) and a quick visit to Switzerland (Basel). The rides are not too challenging, you will overcome the most high metres by train. Add-on more days if you enjoy a day hiking the famous Wutach Gorge or want to spend a day at the thermal bath.

Southern Black Forest & Switzerland

This tour package takes you to the southern part of the Black Forest. This area is not very touristy – this is where you find the locals on the weekends. While tourists often focus on the must-see sights like the cuckoo clock area or the thermal baths in Baden-Baden – the deep south is where you find some of the hidden gems.

During this bicycle tour you also get a change to hop across the border to Switzerland. The start and end of this tour is Freiburg – where we recommend adding on an additional day before your bike tour. Let our guide give you an orientation walk of Freiburg prior to sending you off on your bicycle!

Navigation, Route Notes, Maps & Support

You will receive detailed route notes and maps from us upon check-in at your first hotel. GPS data is also available if you are bicycling with a GPS device.

We are working with a local company which has years of experience running bicyle tours. In case there is a problem our support is only a phone call away. If your bicycle needs repair we equip you with a repair kit – or you can stop at the nearby repair shop for help.
