Walking in the Black Forest between Schluchsee and Feldberg

Of idyllic lakes and picturesque landscapes

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.
