Black Forest

Lakes and gorges in southern Germany.

A refreshing jump into one of the cool lakes, a downhill through the valley Wutachtal and a sidestep on sunny peaks. There is a lot to discover for families in the Black Forest.

Your cycle tour starts on the shores of Rhine in the thermal baths of Bad Zurzach. From here your trip leads you to the lakes of Schluchsee and Titisee and up on the peak of Feldberg. Take a break next to the ski jump hills of Hinterzarten before you continue on small cycle paths along the river Wutach back to the border of Switzerland. Black Forest welcomes you as a hospitable and charming place. Perfect for families to discover on two wheels.

Itinerary

Let your feet dangle in the Rhine or refresh yourself in the thermal spa Bad Zurzach. The „Papa-Moll“ waterworld lets children’s eyes shine.

Pick up from Bad Zurzach and transfer ride to lake Schluchsee. A quiet cycle path leads along the southern shore of the lake with bathing opportunities. You will have time to relax and check out the refreshing water at a peaceful water reservoir. Shortly before Bärental you pass another small lake.

approx. 20 km

In the morning you leave your bikes behind and take the bus up to Feldberg. A climbing forest awaits you there, where you can overcome obstacles at heights of up to 12 metres. After this excursion you are going to hike comfortably past the Feldsee back to your bikes. From the valley Bärental you cycle along the shores of Lake Titisee and reach Hinterzarten in the late afternoon.

approx. 10 km

In the morning you can take a short trip to the famous Ravenna Gorge. Then you go back to Lake Titisee and continue along the Southern Black Forest cycle path to Lenzkirch. Today there are some smaller gradients to overcome.

approx. 30 km

The tour leads you first to the south in the direction of Bonndorf, then on quiet side roads into the valley of Wutachtal. Keep your ears open; in this densley overgrown gorge you might hear some gently rushing water. A guaranteed refreshment awaits you at the end of the tour in the open-air swimming pools of Stühlingen. 

approx. 40 km

You follow the Wutach until it reaches the Rhine. From here it is only a stone's throw to Bad Zurzach. At the end of your journey through the Black Forest, Papa Moll awaits you to greet tired cyclists.

approx. 35 km

Tour character

The journey leads on gravel roads and quiet side roads through the southern Black Forest. Most of the cycle paths are separated. There is some traffic around Lake of Titisee, Lenzkirch and Hinterzarten. A short section before Stühlingen leads about 2 kilometres on a somewhat busy road. Occasionally, smaller gradients require some level of fitness.
