The bliss of Germany’s Black Forest towns


Share this article

The Black Forest region in the south of Germany really is a fairy-tale place. The lush forests and river valleys are even the setting for the Brothers Grimm stories. And it’s a magical land for grown-ups too with fashionable spa towns within reach of Munich and Nuremberg. 

 If you’d like to enjoy your own fairy-tale adventure in Germany, we’ve put together an introduction to a few of region’s most beautiful places. 

The high-end mountain resort of Baiersbronn 

Food may not be your first thought when exploring this pretty spot by the river Murg, but the tiny town squeezes in a Michelin star restaurant for every 8 locals. Just don’t leave forest hikes, ski-slope access, great golfing and the Allerheiligen ruins off your travel menu.

The romantic, old town of Heidelberg 

Featuring a popular old castle on the side of Königstuhl mountain, Heidelberg is a fetching place set on the Neckar riverside. Follow the famous Philosophers’ Way for great views of the town, castles and iconic bridge. 


A scenic drive from Baden-Baden 

Take time to relax in the splendid spa town of Baden-Baden before hitting the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse (or Black Forest High Road). It’s a magnificent road into the Black Forest’s sweet and central towns that’ll treat car fans with viewpoints and belvederes.
