Surrounded by the foothills of the Feldberg massif, Lake Titisee is listed as a conservation area. The drinking water lake houses numerous fish varieties. Pikes of more than 1.2 m length have been caught there. A fascinating experience is a round trip with a sightseeing boat or with a pedal-boat. Enjoy an ice cream on the beach promenade or purchase a typical Black Forest souvenir. Although many thousand tourists visit Lake Titisee each year, it has preserved its unique beauty.


The Schluchsee reservoir is a popular leisure destination especially for bathers and sailors. Mostly flat and comfortable paths allow hikes and bike tours around the whole lake (about 18 kilometers). The shore is accessible almost everywhere. From May to October a sightseeing boat welcomes you for a one-hour cruise. Divers will find a diving base at the train station “Seebrugg“. From the lookout tower “Riesenbühlturm“, near the village Schluchsee, you have a wonderful view over the lake.


Lake Feldsee is a protected natural paradise, not a lake for swimming. Its basin was formed in the last ice age by glaciers. The cool and oxygen-rich water is fed by mountain streams from the spring-rich Seebuck mountain. The seabed is partially covered with aquatic plants like quillwort, which is under conservation. A protected forest (German “Bannwald“), a self-contained natural biotope, borders on the Feldsee.
The lake can only be reached on foot, by mountain bike, or in winter on cross-country skis. If you go there, plan a stop at the Raimartihof inn, and enjoy simple Baden cuisine.


An interesting day trip takes you from the Black Forest to nearby Switzerland: to the Rhine Falls. The largest waterfall in Europe offers an impressive natural spectacle. Coming from Lake Constance, the Rhine near Schaffhausen rushes over the rocks in a width of 150 meters and in a step of 23 meters. The average flow rate is 750 cubic meters per second.


Lake Constance, one of the largest lakes of Central Europe, is with good reason one of the most popular holiday destinations in Germany. Three Countries border on the lake: Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Its special appeal lies in its versatility. In the cities along the Lake Constance, culture-minded people will find numerous sights to explore. Sports enthusiasts take advantage of the versatile range of water and land activities. Internationally renowned is the gourmet cuisine with regional specialities like fish of Lake Constance and vegetables from Reichenau Island.


The Wutach and its tributary rivers flows adventurously wild through 60- to 170-metre-deep gorges. Like in a textbook of geology you will find rock layers from various eras of the earth. Hiking through this overwhelming primeval landscape with romantic and unspoilt forests is an unforgettable experience.


The Ravenna gorge in the Black Forest is a narrow side valley of the Höllental (Hell’s Valley), streamed by the little Ravenna river. The romantic cascades that you pass on the hiking trail will surely fill you with enthusiasm.
In a mysterious atmosphere, given by a mixture of peaceful silence and gloomy wildness, on all four Advent weekends a unique Christmas market takes place underneath the viaduct at the entrance to the Ravenna Gorge.


The Triberg waterfalls are Germany’s highest waterfalls, they drop 163 meters into seven depths. It is worth to experience this natural spectacle – especially after heavy rains. There are three entrances to the waterfalls on well-developed paths, stairs and footbridges. For that, you should be of course a little good on foot. For prams the paths are completely unsuitable. However, from the main entrance the lowermost and largest stage of the waterfall is relatively easily accessible.
