Markgräflerland – a small paradise in the southern part of the Black Forest: Sun-kissed vineyards, lush meadows and idyllic wine villages offer various possibilities to hike, cycle and enjoy.
Whoever knows the Black Forest, knows it’s appeal: Pristine, full of contrast, relaxing, while the landscape, the people and the offers are challenging.
Black Forest girl, Black Forest house, Black Forest cake, Black Forest ham, Black Forest hat or the cuckoo clock are worldwide symbolic for a fairy tale holiday in Germany’s nicest corner.
More than 70 peaks above 1,000 m altitude make this holiday region the scenically most diverse one in Germany. The constant change between mountain and valley is climatically an advantage: Most of Germany’s climatic health resorts are located in the southwest. Hikers and Nordic walkers enjoy the expansive views of the Black Forest mountains in the summer. The winter presents a winter wonder hiking world in many places to ambitious skiers, hikers, snowboarders, snowkiters and friends of snow shoe hiking. Meadows, vineyards, vast valleys, high mountains and forested mountain’s crests – from spring to autum, the Black Forest is particularly popular with hikers, cyclists and mountain cyclists, „car“hikers and motorcyclists who enjoy curves.
History of a region: the farmhouse museum Schniederlihof and the Black Forest ski museum Hungerhof in Hinterzarten, the Schauinsland cable car climb to 1,284 m, passing by bent beeches, a result of natural force. Insight into the inside at the mine museum. View from the Schauinsland tower over the Feldberg and the Vosges mountains.
The fertile Rhine valley and the wine region Markgräflerland, the Kaiserstuhl and Tuniberg are also part of the tourist area.
