Visiting Freiburg is not complete without a hike in the Black Forest. There are many hiking trails around Freiburg. But for a real Black Forest experience you need to hop on a train and head into the Black Forest mountains.

Looking for a hike you can do on your own?

Only a short train ride away from Freiburg you find one of the most hidden-secrets of the Black Forest: The Ravenna Gorge. In the past we always recommended to hike Ravenna Gorge with a guide. But with our self-guided tours it is easy to follow the hiking trail on your own. Our app tracks your position so you always know where you are and where to go next. Our tour has a lot of pictures and descriptions to provide you with all the background info on the sights you see while hiking. If you prefer to do this hike with a private guide please contact us. This is one of our most popular hikes because you really get it all: Besides the classic, dark Black Forest gorge hike next to waterfalls, you get a lot of Black Forest history, a few touristy things, the oldest chapel in the Black Forest, the areas largest cuckoo clock. Our self-guided hike takes you down into a valley famous for its ancient mills that once made everything from rope to spoons. You will see how people thrived hundreds of years ago. You are in for a real treat!

Excellent experience with Bärbel, our guide, who went from deep historical notes to current items. She met us in a timely manner, and was very personable and pleased to share her experiences and knowledge with us.

We visited Freiburg for a half-day and took a private tour with Black Forest Tours. Our guide, Iris, was fantastic. We learned so much about the history of Freiburg. Iris showed us some of the main sites and areas of Freiburg, but also the hidden gems. Iris was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. After our tour, we felt we could really appreciate the unique charm of Freiburg and its people. Thank you!

Annemarie was a super guide. She showed us around Freiburg, pitching it just right (our group included 4 children aged 10, 11, 13 and 14). A really enjoyable way to experience Freiburg.
