Thousands of years ago as our ancestors first climbed the Belchen and saw to the south the towering peaks of the Alps, they must have been captured by the wonder of this place. The Black Forest has lost non of this magnetism. Thousands of visitors are drawn to its mythical sites. This brochure presents a selection of the spiritual places to be found, mainly in the south of this holiday region. Here the mountains rise steeply from the edges of the Upper Rhine Valley, forming a labyrinth of narrow valleys dotted with sun soaked vineyards. These southern peaks offer superb views. Those who venture further north will find another Black Forest, dominated by characteristic wide ranging woodland. We want to entice you to explore the Black Forest, to experience for yourself its power. You’ll be enthralled by the region´s charisma, by the character of its people and by the variety it has to offer.
