The Black Forest Highlands offer their guests the perfect combination of an action-packed adventure holiday, enjoyment of the natural scenery and relaxation. With an extensive network of cycling paths, hiking and mountain bike trails, there are no limits to getting active in the great outdoors.
The opportunities to discover the Black Forest Highlands are almost as numerous as the trees in the region’s green forests: on an extended hike along idyllic paths, along one of the many trails by mountain bike or on a canyoning tour taking in crystal-clear streams and steep rocks. The Wutach Gorge, which is Germany’s largest canyon, is a paradise for active holidaymakers, while the idyllic outdoor swimming pools and lakes in the forests are great places to cool off.
With a network of some 1,700 kilometres of hiking trails, including eight certified premium trails, the holiday region offers the ideal conditions for discovering the natural beauty of the Black Forest by foot. Ranging from 8 to 26 km in length, the “Black Forest Connoisseur Paths” provide the perfect symbiosis of nature and pleasure: extensive woodland, lush meadows and crystal-clear streams, as well as idyllic country inns which invite travellers to take a rest and enjoy some local specialities.
