Freiburg Germany and the Southern Black Forest
September 22nd - 28th, 2019
7 days, 6 nights
Boutique Hotels & Spas
7-12 miles daily hiking
Deep valleys flanked by rounded granite peaks, hill after hill of dark green forests in juxtaposition with open countryside dotted with half-timbered farmhouses - cuckoo clocks, thermal spas, Black Forest cake, cheese and a plethora of fresh brews - THIS is the Southern Black Forest!
We begin our trek in the bustling university town of Freiburg with its grand cathedral and lively cobbled streets filled with traditional German culture and foods.
From here we take the train to the small resort town of Schluchsee where we make our trek eventually back to Freiburg via the recreational paradise town of Hinterzarten. We traverse the Black Forest’s highest peaks of the Feldberg and the Belchen before settling into a quiet spa for a couple of days close to the Schauinsland Peak - Freiburg’s home mountain.
This trip will take on the gesture of this areas’ slower paced villages as we linger in morning meditations, meander hillside and forest trails during the days, and pause for yoga and spa activities in the late afternoons.
