This magical region is one of the most popular and varied hiking destinations in Germany. The first stages will take you from Titisee up to Feldberg, the highest peak in the Black Forest. Afterwards, the trail continues to the beautiful high valley of Bernau through the winter sports resort of Todtnauberg. The tour leads through quiet mountain valleys to the shores of Schluchsee until you reach the starting point of your hiking week at Titisee again. Choose a hiking vacation in the Black Forest with itravel.
The Black Forest offers favorable weather conditions.
The summer months are best suited for hiking tours. The average daily temperature is 20°C. Lakes and high peaks help you cool down at higher temperatures. Hikers can choose shady trails or gorges for walking if needed. Peaks are best climbed in the morning when visibility is clear. Spring and fall are the busiest times in the Black Forest, and inexpensive hotel deals entice visitors to stay.
