Woodland wonderland of south-west Germany

  • guest travel cards included
  • option to add on beautiful Freiburg

Schwarzwald – mention the word to Germans and you will discover that the Black Forest, a vast, mystical swathe of bewitchingly beautiful woodland, has a resonance far beyond the clichés of cuckoo clocks and richly flavoured chocolate gâteaux.
The beauty of the Black Forest comes not just from the splendour that nature has seen fit to bestow upon this alluring corner of Europe, but also from the symbiotic relationship that exists between the woodland and those who live within its timber embrace.
Andy Montgomery, Buzz Trips
Cosy wooden inns, cloaked in dark eaves that seem to scrape the forest floor, sit amid peaceful glades and send curls of smoke up through an evergreen canopy, their Hansel-and-Gretel charm providing a soothing and cocooning atmosphere. And although the trees inspire a special reverence, they are but part of Black Forest holidays: the landscape frequently opens up to offer wondrous views; the cuisine is unmatched practically anywhere else in the country; and pocket-sized Freiburg is a city you will instantly love. For Germans, though, this region is synonymous with hiking – especially here in the Black Forest Highlands (Hochschwarzwald), where we have planned rewarding routes through the extensive network of trails. (Each hotel issues Inntravel guests with a Konuskarte (travel guest card), enabling you to travel free of charge on buses and trains during your Black Forest holiday.) So lace up your boots, and enjoy your own little slice of this undoubted walkers’ paradise.
