If you mention the word Schwarzwald to most Germans you will discover that the Black Forest means a lot more than just clocks and cake. It's a vast, mystical swathe of beautiful woodland interspersed with wide open meadows, where you'll find cosy wooden inns, nestling beneath distant peaks. The fairy-tale charm provides a soothing atmosphere and is as equally important as the trees themselves. As you walk, enjoy the wondrous views; savour what is probably Germany's best cuisine; and discover the region's enchanting heritage. Here, in the Black Forest Highlands (Hochschwarzwald), enjoy rewarding routes through the extensive network of trails in what is regarded as a paradise for walkers.
