Holiday in the Nature Park North Black Forest -
switch off and relax in one of the most beautiful corners of Germany
The Black Forest with its multi-facetted history, unique natural beauties and countless sights is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Federal Republic. For over two hundred years, this region has been attracting summer visitors and winter sports enthusiasts from all over Germany and has not lost any of its charms since then.
Its name came from the Romans, which originated seventy million years ago. These named the area "Silva nigra" - "Black Forest" covered by dense forests and inhabited by wild animals. Sparsely populated, the Black Forest was a perfect hiding place for highwaymen and not very safe. Only from the 8th century, with the Carolingian period, more people settled here. The new inhabitants built their houses and farms, especially around the monasteries, which were founded by the Benedictine monks in part already during the 7th century. The German name "Svarzwald" is first mentioned in a dated to the year 868 certificate of the monastery of St. Gallen.
Cuckoo Clock, Black Forest cake and the Black Forest Clinic - who does not know the export hits of the highest German low mountain range. The Black Forest still has much more to offer. For example, nature lovers who can explore more than 20,000 kilometers of hiking paths on Schuster's Rappen are in the best of hands. Those who are good on foot can cross the entire mountain range on the 280-kilometer-long mountain trail from Pforzheim to Basel. With a little luck wild boars, deer, foxes, rabbits and badgers will show themselves to the lonely traveler. Excursion destinations such as the Hexenlochtal with the mill of the same name, the Glaswaldsee, the Wutachschlucht or the Triberger waterfalls also invite you to a flying visit.
However, a holiday in the Black Forest not only offers numerous opportunities to enjoy nature. The holiday guests can also experience the tradition and the history of individual handicraft businesses up close. For example, the Black Forest open-air museum Vogtsbauernhof brings its visitors into contact with life and building history of the region for about 400 years. Glassworks offer an insight into the centuries-old glassmaking tradition. In the Wolfacher Dorotheenhütte guests may even try themselves in this art. History buffs will also enjoy the historic Alpirsbach abbey complex, the Auto & Watch World in Schramberg, the Dominican Museum Rottweil and many other historic sites.
