Summer is the ideal time to visit if you like to spend most of your day outside. We have hot summer days and warm nights, many times a thunderstorm in the afternoon or evening. Summer storms are pretty frequent, heavy and short, with the months June through August seeing the most precipitation.
Fall is a good time to come visit. The weather is cooler, but usually still pretty nice. Not hot, but warm days. You need to be prepared for rain. Fall is the best time for a Winery our Harvest Tour. It’s a great time to attend wine festivals or other traditional festivities. It’s still a good time for mountain biking, nordic walking and other outdoor activities.
Winter. We can get a lot of snow in the Black Forest. If you are into winter sports, this is the time to come visit. The Black Forest offers cross-country and downhill skiing.
