The Black Forest and Rheinland: A Collection of Stunning Waters and Getaways in Nature
Our Take Me to the Lakes series comprises eight slow travel guides featuring selected bathing spots from Elbe River’s banks down to Lake Constance’s shorelines. For our latest addition to the series, Take Me to the Lakes – Schwarzwald Edition, we travelled to Germany’s largest and highest low mountain range. We invite you to pack your hiking boots and swimsuits and explore this stunning region from the water’s edge. The Black Forest’s untouched landscapes are brimming with diverse flora and fauna. We curated this guide to help you experience everything from its expansive coniferous forests and colourful traditional costumes to popular attractions, such as Feldberg and Schluchsee.
Moss-covered roots, ancient landscapes, sparse woodlands—countless paths lead you through stunning scenery and straight to the Black Forest’s most pristine lakes. To kick off your Black Forest adventures, we included eight recommendations for luxurious accommodations in nature. So make yourself comfortable alone, as a couple, as a family or with friends after long days on the lake and hiking.
Please note that our Schwarzwald Edition is currently only available in German.
