The Black Forest
Germany’s beautiful Black Forest appears impossible in its scale and its splendour. Make no doubt about it: this is a natural wonderland that is seriously big. Spectacular too? Talk about an understatement. Enjoying a stunning location in Baden-Wurttemberg, in Germany’s southeastern regions, the thick forest stretches as far as the eye can see. But there’s rather more here than the trees alone. Mountainous and marvellous, the Black Forest even blankets Feldberg, Germany’s highest summit. It might not seem possible, but there’s no question that this picturesque place is real.
Known to local people as Schwarzwald, the Black Forest inspired the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales and covers 2,320 square miles and boasts countless rivers and lakes amongst its geographic treasures. Beckoning all with a penchant for outdoor adventures, this is a place that demands a visit. But getting lost is always a possibility, so do take care not to lose your bearings.
