Without doubt the picturesque Black Forest is one of Germany’s largest and best-known regions. It is an enchanting land of wonderful scenery; with pine clad mountains, rolling hills, lush green valleys, crystal clear lakes and glistening waterfalls.
In the Black Forest you will be treated to quaint half-timbered buildings to admire as they nestle in delightful historic towns and villages. There are also dramatic gorges carved by the River Rhine, plus of course those magnificent cuckoo clocks and the famous Black Forest Gateau. This scenic tour is based in the delightful village of Hornberg, set in the beautiful Gutach mountain valley, in the district of Reichenbach in the heart of the Black Forest.
Schwarzwaldhochstrasse is the ultimate driving road of the Black Forest region and no visit would be complete without a drive on it. At about 3,000 feet/900m, the 44-mile/70km stretch of the B500 road runs along the ridges of a low mountain range. Along the way, you can look up at the 4,900-ft/ 1,493m Feldberg summit, the highest point in the Black Forest, and down into some spectacular ravines.
Lake Titisee is nestled within the rolling hills and mountains of the Black Forest and offers a variety of waterfront activities. You can wander along the alpine lake's shore to admire the nearby Hochfirst Mountain. Triberg Falls are one of the highest waterfalls in Germany with water cascading down an impressive 163m and is one of the most beautiful natural sites of the Black Forest region. There are three entrances to the waterfalls, which are reached via asphalted paths, steps and footbridges.
