What’s the area like?
There are 13 wine regions in Germany with more than 23,000 vineyards. The wine area of The Black Forest is the 3rd largest and southern-most wine region in Germany (called Baden).
The climate in this area is warm, as the vineyards are sheltered by the surrounding mountains and the Rhine River Valley. Due to this warm climate, Baden produces the only wine-zone B class wines in Germany. Wine-zone B is the same category as the famous French wine areas of Alsace, Champagne, and the Loire Valley.
The Baden Wine Road is 160 kilometers long, connecting numerous old wineries and tiny villages. For your hike, our Wine Trail is set in one of those beautiful wine villages, with a castle overlooking the town – You’re going to love it.
