Look forward to a circular hiking tour through the Upper Black Forest – Germany’s warmest region between the North Sea and the Alps. Between the Titisee and Bernau, the region presents its most beautiful sights as e.g. cool glacial lakes, deep valleys and summits with spectacular views.

The hiking region of the Black Forest surely is an impressive area: stunning summits alternate with deep valleys and deep blue mountain lakes and thus turn this region into one of Germany’s most attractive hiking destinations. This hiking tour starts at the Titisee and leads you up to the Feldberg Mountain, which has the highest peak of the entire Black Forest.

You continue your walking holidays through the winter sport village of Todtnauberg until you reach the beautiful high valley Bernau. Before returning to Lake Titisee at the end of this hiking week, you pass through quiet mountain valleys until you arrive at the shores of Lake Schluchsee.

This hiking tour is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

After your arrival, get into the mood of your upcoming Upper Black Forest hiking tour while taking a walk through the climatic health resort of Saig.

Day 2: Saig – Hinterzarten (approx. 16 km, walking time: approx. 4 – 5 hrs)
The first stage of your walking holidays in the Upper Black Forest leads you away from the plateau of Saig right through the calm forest of the nature reserve Rotmeer. After having passed the valley of Bärental, you reach a hiking trail, which leads you steeply uphill. Hiking on one of the most popular hiking trails in the Black Forest called Westweg, you continue through swampy countryside until you arrive at the village Hinterzarten.

Day 3: Hinterzarten – Feldberg (approx. 16 km, walking time: approx. 4 – 5 hrs)
Leaving Hinterzarten behind, you hike to the ice-age glacial lake Feldsee. After you had a pleasant break at this picturesque site you follow a narrow trail up to Seehalde near Präg, which is one of the biggest block dumps in the Southern Black Forest. A quiet mountain inn on top of the Feldberg awaits you for today’s night.

Welcome to the Black Forest where hiking was invented!

The Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald) is a large forested mountain range in south-western Germany. Bounded by the Rhine valley it is a woodland area with a length of 160 km (99 mi) and breadth of up to 60 km (37 mi). The length of all trails combined is some 23,000 kilometres and it is said that hiking was invented in the Black Forest. True or not – the Black Forest offers some of the finest hiking experience in Europe! The Black Forest became famous for its natural beauty and unique cultural characteristics but also for its diverse hiking trails such as Westweg, a hiking trail in the western Black Forest, or the Schluchtensteig, a hiking trail in southern Black Forest.
