Tour 3: Natural Highlights
Unspoiled woodland, romantic gorges, glittering lakes, high mountains and picturesque valleys wait to be discovered in the Black Forest Highlands.
The discovery tour through the natural beauties of the Black Forest Highlands starts at Feldberg. For the more active version a quick hike to the Herzogenhorn is worth its exertions. The top offers a wide view over the Black Forest Highlands as far as the Swiss Alps.
After your way back, your journey leads you to Germany´s highest natural waterfalls in Todtnau Berg, which plunge 97m down into the picturesque valley. There are small paths crossing the waterfalls and give you the chance to get a glimpse of different point of views.
The journey continues to the biggest lake in the Black Forest, lake Schluchsee. Here you have several options. You can either take a boat cruise over the lake, have a walk around the lake or hike along the premium hiking trail Jägersteig.
This path leads you to the Bildstein, a fantastic overlook, where you get a unique view over the whole lake.
The Wutachschlucht, the biggest canyon in Germany waits to be discovered. The adventurous wild river valley builds an overwhelming scenery with romantic gorges and unspoiled woodlands.
