Black Forest - Tradition, Culture & Activities

Holiday in the Black Forest - Culture

With approximately 11,400 square kilometers, the holiday region of the Black Forest is vast. Almost half of this area accounts for the low mountain range responsible for the name bestowed on the region. The holiday region of the Black Forest has many faces that provide for very diverse tours of discovery.

Oberkirch's Hotel Pflug is an ideal starting point for exploring the Black Forest and Ortenau.

The Black Forest and its foothills are divided into two contiguous national parks: the nature park "Black Forest Middle / North", with its 3,750 square kilometers is one of the largest parks in Germany. The "Black Forest Nature Park" boasts an impressive 3,330 square kilometers and being the first of its kind in Germany was awarded the "Quality Nature Park" award in September 2006.

There is seldom a more varied holiday region than this treasured corner in southwestern Germany. Nature is at its best, from the lakes in the Upper Rhine to the observation towers at the highest peaks that allow all who view it to live the experience. Where can nature be more beautiful than high on a mountain top or in the rapids of a rushing river.
