The Black Forest in Germany, which locally is known as the Schwarzwald, is widely known as one of Germany’s most beautiful hiking regions. During this Black Forest Walking Holiday in Germany, you will be sure to be enchanted by breath-taking panoramic views, many lakes with a deep blue colour and interesting landscapes. During the week you will hike up the Black Forests highest peak; this is the Feldberg at around 1500m.
You shall then follow on to one of the biggest ski resorts of the region Todtnauberg, before walking through the gentle and beautiful valley of Bernau. Lastly, on this Black Forest walking holiday, you shall follow the trail that leads to Lake Schluchsee. This is another highlight at 7.3km long and 1.4km wide but this is not a natural lake, it is indeed a reservoir lake created by a 64m high dam. Here you shall ramble along its shores before the final ascent to Titisee, while you admire the surrounding countryside.
Come and enjoy a hiking holiday in Germany and visit the Black Forest, you won’t regret it!
Level 2 -3. Moderate hikes with an average duration of approximately 4 to 6 hours per day. The tours lead partly on rocky and possibly also slippery paths. For that, you should bring sure-footedness. For the hills in the Black Forest, a good level of fitness is required.

It is a requirement of booking this tour with Hooked on Walking that you have suitable travel insurance which covers you for the chosen activity and for emergency evacuation and hospital care.
After leaving your hotel you enter a quiet forest as you descend toward lake Titisee. Now walking through a nature reserve beside the lake you reach Barental. Here you can sample local liquor and a good glass of Schnaps. Now you start to ascend to the lake Mathisleweiher often giving a dream-like landscape in the middle of the forest. Now you continue on a pretty trail to the town of Hinterzarten.
Before starting on your hike today spend some time looking around Hinterzarten. When ready leave Hinterzarten where you shall walk up to the picturesque Feldsee. The Feldsee is actually a tarn which was created during the Ice Age. It is actually the largest in the Black Forest and you shall see that it has three high mountains of 300m on three of its sides. Why not take a break at this idyllic location? After which you can decide on one of two routes, direct to your accommodation on a lovely trail or to visit the Bismarck monument first. Your overnight stop at a mountain inn on the Feldberg
Today you will climb the Feldberg which is the region’s highest peak at around 1500m. The walking trail does rise steeply initially but soon you will reach the peak. Now from the highest point of the Black Forest, you can wander at a marvellous panoramic view; the Black Forest hiking at its best! After maybe a short rest you continue to hike along the West Trail along the mountain ridge. The tour leads through some quiet forests mostly gently downhill. Soon you shall arrive at today’s destination which is the lively winter resort of Todtnauberg.
Today from the ski resort of Todtnauberg you descend down into the valley passing numerous waterfalls. You shall see masses of water plunging 100m. Now from Todtnau, you shall take the chairlift up to the Hasenhorn. Take some time to maybe look at the coaster run which is 2.9km in length. After a short detour to the summit and admiring the views, you will hike passing through lovely pastures as you descend through the valley. Bernau is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful high valleys in the Black Forest.
This is a long but beautiful day, and we think the most beautiful stage of the week. As part of today’s walk, you shall hike along one of the most popular Black Forest trails in the region leading to the vantage point of Scheibenfelsen and to the village of Menzenschwand. From here you will walk on more forest trails down to Schluchsee. The path now leads along the shore of this wonderful lake to the centre of the Schluchsee health resort.
