Seasonal Highlights

For centuries and until the development of rail and roads the Black Forest Highlands was a very isolated area, therefore, traditions, ancient crafts and old Alemannic customs have been preserved here. Almost every village has its museum, major festivals and small markets throughout most of the year.

Customs and traditions have always been important to the people in the towns and villages of the Black Forest Highlands. The best way to experience these is at the local festivities and events which come around each year. From the traditional village festivals to the romantic and picturesque Christmas markets, the Black Forest Highlands offer authentic culture to experience throughout the year. One big attraction, on the four weekends of advent, is the well known Christmas Market in the Ravenna Gorge.
