Active holidays in countryside of unrivalled beauty

What type are you? More someone who is content with sun, fresh air and the buzzing of the bees in the meadows?

If so, then go on a voyage of discovery around our hotel and Höchenschwand. You will be spoilt for choice with enchanted spots, fresh mountain streams with crystal clear water and a fantastic view into the distance. Simply leave all your cares far behind you and take a break from your routine.

Are you more of an active type? Do you want to fall into bed at night tired but content after a day filled with exercise? If so, here you will find charming hiking trails and mountain bike routes with different levels of difficulty. You can hire e-bikes at Reception. Simply ask at Reception for tips as to how you can spend your day.

Black Forest tradition

Go on the trail of old handicrafts, traditional Black Forest houses, customs and long-forgotten treasures. In the Southern Black Forest and not far from us there are numerous events inviting you to rediscover old traditions. The house of the painter Christian Gotthard Hirsch is always worth a visit, or you can visit – depending on the season – the horse blessing in Todtmoos, the ‘mill day’, the ‘Eulogi-Ritt’ horseback procession in Lenzkirch or many other interesting events.

Also recommended are “Altes Handwerk im Schwarzwald [Old Handicrafts in the Black Forest]” on the Feldberg or the “Holzschneflertage [Wood craftsmen days]” with natural park market in Bernau.

Real winter joys

Enjoyable winter hiking through the magical Black Forest landscape, crystal clear air and breathtaking views as far as the Alps mean your stay in Höchenschwand becomes a real experience. Numerous user-friendly winter hiking routes, e.g. the Panoramaweg across the Sonnenhang (sunny slope), the Marienkapelle [Chapel of Our Lady] circular route and the Dreherhäusleweiher are suitable for any fitness level. Tobogganers, cross-country skiers and downhill skiers will also very much get their money’s worth.
