Leisure fun for hikers

The most beautiful hiking trails

Whether vineyards or peaks, gorges or panoramic paths: the network of hiking trails is as versatile as the natural landscape of the Black Forest. In the south, the 11,100 km2 holiday region rises up to the 1493-metre-high Feldberg. Thanks to the Black Forest Association, the almost 24,000 km signposted hiking trails are regularly checked and maintained.

It is the classic and the most famous long-distance hiking trail in the Black Forest: The Westweg hiking trail was created in 1900 by the Black Forest Association as the first long-distance hiking trail and leads once from north to south (or vice versa) through the Black Forest.


Around the valley of the “Wilden Rench” the premium hiking trail Wiesensteig winds along the Griesbacher Wiesen and valley slopes. On a length of approx. 13.5 kilometres, beautiful landscape formations, mountain meadows, forest and water characterise the circular trail.

And what is the most beautiful thing about the Wiesensteig, it leads directly past the Vintage Hotel Hoferer: Immediately after breakfast you can “get on” here and you are immediately on an excellent hiking trail.

Black Forest Hiking Symphony: Himmelssteig

Sophisticated, promising and enjoyable – these characteristics characterize the approximately 11 km long Himmelssteig. On the way there is an interplay between moss, grass, and root paths through and past dense fir and mixed forests.

Gourmet Trail – The Kniebiser Home Path

The almost flat circular trail is suitable for all ages and is very entertaining and entertaining with its many different stations and magnificent views. Cosy benches and many inns on the side of the road invite you to rest.


The leisure pass for cyclists with a fatbike

Fatbikes are mountain bikes with extremely wide tyres and coarse studs. In addition, equipped with a central motor, e-fat bikes are the megatrend for bikers and the eye-catcher par excellence! The jeeps among the bikes were originally developed in North America for snow and mud rides.

You drive easily over sand or uneven terrain. The wide tyres offer enormous grip on any surface, but are also suitable for driving on road surfaces. Due to this property, the bikes are completely season-independent and offer a unique riding fun all year round. These all-rounders are perfect for snow biking or “sludge battles”. In muddy weather or winter biking, they are a great alternative for sports outside a gym. Off-roaders and pleasure cyclists get their money’s worth.

Guided tours can also be carried out throughout the year. Since strangers are not familiar with the area, this is gladly accepted. There is no minimum number of participants, so that tours with only one

Children can use a fatbike themselves or can be taken in a trailer.

Free test drives are possible at any time upon telephone request.
