The Black forest Highlands is a culinary destination where the famous Black Forest Gâteau and the Black Forest Ham taste the best.
Start your journey above 1400 m at the Feldberg Tower at the top of the highest mountain in the Black Forest. Immerse into the history and secrets of the Black Forest Ham and its unique smoked taste
Have a traditional vesper at one of the rustic cabins at the mountain with the typical Black Forest Ham.
Next stop is the Café Schnaphäusle zum gescheiten Beck, where you try a Black Forest classic. Join a Black Forest Gâteau presentation and try a piece of the most famous cream layered cake. Afterwards you visit the schnapps museum where you get a tour through the museum and a sample of schnapps, a fruit brandy made from fine fruits.
A visit at one of our local cheese diaries shows you how the live and work at a farm looks like and how cheese is made.

An absolute highlight is a visit at the Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus. Glance over the shoulder of a brew master and learn how the famous beer of the Black Forest Highlands is made.
