Your bike trip in Black Forest

The Southern Black Forest Tour is surprisingly relaxed. You cycle past the typical Black Forest farms with low-hanging roofs that nestle close to the forested, green mountains. On the circular tour from Freiburg, you
overcome most of the altitude metres by train and often enjoy rolling downhill. This way you can not only observe the serenity of the people of Baden, but also experience it for yourself.

Day 1 : Arrival in Freiburg

The tour begins in Freiburg, Germany‘s warmest town. Look out for the „Bächle“ – the small water-filled rills along most streets and alleyways that give this town its own special flair.

Day 2 : Freiburg - Bonndorf | 45 km + train ride

You‘ll soon be immersed in the charming countryside of the Black Forest. Just about 10 km on from Freiburg, you take the train in Kirchzarten, which takes you to Titisee – this will help you avoid almost all metres of altitude on this tour! Passing the typical Black Forest houses, you cycle through beautiful countryside to Bonndorf.Read more

Day 3 : Bonndorf – Waldshut-Tiengen | 50 km

On this section you cycle along a plateau to Wutachtal valley and then on to Waldshut-Tingen, 500 m further down along the Rhine. The route is cycled practically without any effort, downhill to soon reach today‘s destination, Waldshut- Tiengen, right on the Swiss border.

Day 4 : Waldshut-Tiengen – Basel | 70 km

You cycle further on downstream, via Laufenburg to Bad Säckingen, where you‘ll find Europe‘s longest wooden, roofed bridge. Have a stop here – there are two very special museums you can visit: The Müllmuseum (garbage museum) and a museum about the famous „Trumpeter from Bad Säckingen“. Following the northern bank of the Rhine, you cycle on to Rheinfelden. To shorten the route you can board a train here (not included). Should you decide to continue by bike, a visit to the Roman fort Augusta Raurica is worthwhile.

Day 5 : Basel – Badenweiler / Müllheim | 50 km

You leave Basel, on the border to three countries, and will see the Istein Klotz from afar – which used to be located right on the Rhine and has always been a site for castles and forts. At the edge of the Black Forest, you cycle through small spa towns, which all draw on the healing waters of the area.

Day 6 : Badenweiler – Freiburg | 40 km

You cycle through the vineyards of the Markgräflerland – up to the right the Black Forest and to the left the Vosges Mountains. Freiburg is Germany‘ s warmest and most southern city. It has its own particular charm – look out for the small water-filled rills along most streets and alleyways. From the Schlossberg, you have a great view over the town and the surrounding area.
