Black Forest

Germany’s largest holiday region

About the Black Forest Region

With a surface area of 6000 km², two thirds of which are wooded, the Black Forest is Germany’s largest woodland area and at the same time, its highest low-mountain range. No wonder that the Black Forest has developed more and more into one of the most liked and largest holiday destinations in its own country. More and more guests from abroad are also discovering the Black Forest as an attractive and recreative holiday region.

FREIBURG & POWER Places –
HALF-DAY TOUR VERSION

Have you ever heard of power places such as the pyramids in Egypt or Machu Picchu in Peru? Discover similar places of power here in joining me on this tour: find silence or feel and experience them in your own special way. Let’s head out to find them and also get to know the main sights of Freiburg City and its best  “food power places“ as I would name them: unique and cool little cafés, juice bars or restaurants. Let me show you the famous “Fressgass“, which most tourists miss when being in town.  An unforgettable tour most tourists will never experience when seeing Freiburg. 

Can be booked as a half-day tour (3–4 hours) or
as a full-day tour (6–8 hours) – see below*.

Comfortable walking shoes requested.

FREIBURG & POWER PLACES –
*Full-Day Tour Version

The full-day tour consists of visiting a power place further out of town in the afternoon. Learn about the legend of St. Odile from the Alsace region on this tour and get to know a beautiful and well-known local restaurant in the midst of Freiburg city  forest.  As a full-day tour, there will be enough breaks to catch a breath and to have a nice lunch or snacks in between. Walking tour in the afternoon of 2 to 3 hours roundtrip from Freiburg city center.

Everything will be done by walking (4 to 5 hours). So this tour definitely requires a somewhat good general fitness in walking.

Good walking shoes or light hiking boots requested.

FREIBURG CITY & DREISAM VALLEY BIKE TOUR

You are a newcomer in town: let me show you around here in a 2 to 3-hour walking tour. Have a break wherever and as often as you want and in the afternoon then let‘s hop on our bikes to explore the bright and beautiful Dreisam Valley (Dreisam being the name of our local river that runs through town). We will cycle up along the cycling path of the Dreisam river to the cute little tourist town Kirchzarten. Let‘s have a well-deserved break there and relish a nice fresh homemade ice cream before heading back into town. Given a nice beautiful summer day, we could also cater a picknick for you to be enjoyed on the restful riverbanks of Freiburg‘s local river Dreisam for lunch. Just let me know. 

A great outdoor tour with walking and bicycling at the same time. Don’t worry. This tour does not require triathlon-level fitness but a general good fitness and sportiness should not seem to foreign to you.

Walking (2–3 hours) and bicycling (2–3 hours) will be done at a moderate speed. 

Comfortable shoes requested.

ST. PETER – Pure Black Forest Panorama

Let’s have a scenic drive to St. Peter in the Black Forest and get to know one of the most beautiful baroque churches in this region. One of my favourite hikes with panoramic views all over the mountain tops of the Black Forest starts right here.  A nice scenic hike of about 2 hours from St. Peter to another beautiful tourist town called St. Märgen. In St. Märgen, let’s enjoy some homemade cake or other nice local dishes prepared with great care from St. Märgen’s local farmer’s wives; a locality no tourist ever learns or hears about.

Moderate easy hike (2–3 hours)

Hiking gear requested.
