Black Forest, Germany

  1. I am currently vacationing in Germany and we are looking for hiking recommendations in the Black Forest, anyone have any suggestions?

  2. Thanks so much Ted. The link you included was a webpage I had found the other day but was having trouble finding it again. It is exactly the area we want to go, now we just have to find a starting point to drive to.

    Thanks again,
    Have a great day!
  3. Hi Jamie.

    My parents live in the southern part of the Blackforest in Freiburg.

    Freiburg is a nice little city; you can find beautiful landscape around there.

    Possible destinations to look for:

    - Schauinsland (Mountain)
    - Münstertal (Munstertal, a really stunning valley)
    - Feldberg (Mountain)

    Close to you, on the french side of the boarder, there is a very nice old fortification called "Hohkoenigsbourg", one of the highest buildings of that kind in this region. Visiting Colmar is always a good idea.

    Between this and Freiburg is a famous wine area called "Kaiserstuhl", where you can find fine white wines.

    Have fun !

  4. Thanks Mattes,

    We went there today. Had an amazing hike and I think I got some good shots.
    We did pass through Frieburg on the way home. The drive to there was lovely, I love it here in Germany.

    Thanks again,

  9. Thanks again for the help everyone. We are now home and had a great time.
    The Black Forest area is amazing, can't wait to go back. We did one day of hiking and really enjoyed it.

    I have started another thread with one of my pics from the hike. It is here, https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=179116
