Hiking Trails

Hiking Trails

The Northern Black Forest features beautiful hiking trails dotted with historical sites and offering breath-taking views. One of Germany‘s highest rated premium trails is the 110 kilometer long Murgleiter, running from Bad Rotenfels to the Schliffkopf peak near Baiersbronn. In alternative to the Murgleiter or as a continuation of it, you can go on a hiking adventure on the famous Westweg, the Black Forest's oldest trail, which goes from Pforzheim to Basel and crosses the Rastatt District for its 2nd and 3rd stages.

Black Forest National Park

Black Forest National Park

The Black Forest National Park was founded in 2014 as the first national park in Baden-Württemberg. It is located inside the Central/North Black Forest Nature Park and is divided into two parts, the northern part being situated in the Rastatt district. The park covers an area of 10,062 hectares and extends along the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse between Plättig and Alexanderschanze. Much of the park’s wildlife is allowed to evolve freely, without human influence. Here, natural evolution takes precedence over exploitation, and visitors to the park get the unique opportunity to experience the transformation up close.

PAMINA Rhine Park

PAMINA Rhine Park

An entire region as museum: this is the idea behind the PAMINA Rhine Park. It is neither a nature reserve nor an open air museum, it's a cross-border project along the river Rhine. The picturesque alluvial landscapes between Karlsruhe and the southern Rastatt district are the main showpiece. Further attractions include ten themed museums, two conservation centers and numerous other interesting sites along the way. The area can be explored on foot or by bike, and covers 850 km sq. In Rastatt, you can find information about the PAMINA Rhine Park at the Riedmuseum.

Schwarzach Cathedral

Schwarzach Cathedral

The Schwarzach Cathedral, or Münster Swarzach, is located in Rheinmünster and is one of the great artistic treasures of Baden-Württemberg. Characterised by baroque farm buildings and a splendid monastic gate, it was the cathedral of a former Benedictine abbey and it dates back to the 9th century. After a devastating fire in 1299, the monastery was soon restored and the new building solemnly consecrated in 1302. The consecration, called "Schwarzacher Kirwe“, is celebrated each year on the third Tuesday in October. The Schwarzach Cathedral is now a popular venue for concerts, offering top-class artists, excellent acoustics and an extraordinary atmosphere.

Gernsbach

Gernsbach

The “pearl of the Murg Valley”, as Gernsbach is also known, has an eventful past. Imposing monuments in the historic center bear witness to the wealth of long gone days, when the Murg raftmen drove the oak logs over the Murg and the Rhine all the way to Rotterdam. Charming half-timbered houses, sparkling fountains, the ancient walls and the old town hall, with cafés all around, make a visit well worthwhile. Gernsbach is also a hikers' paradise, featuring the Gernsbacher Runde, a circular route running some 42 kilometers long around the town, and the Gernsbacher Sagenweg (Legend path), a pleasure hike of about 5 km that will fascinate young and old with its stories.

Schwarzenbach Dam

Schwarzenbach Dam

Located inside the North/Central Black Forest Nature Park and built between 1922 and 1926, the reservoir between the Schwarzwaldhochstraβe and the Murg valley is the largest lake in the northern and central Black Forest. The water is directed to the power plant in Forbach (Rudolf-Fettweiswerk/EnBW) to generate electricity. The 400-meter long gravity dam is still considered today as a pioneering achievement in German barrage construction. Because of its idyllic surroundings, the lake with boat rental is a favorite destination in the northern Black Forest.
