    The Feldbergsteig

    Should the Black Forest be at your feet?

    Would you like to stand on the highest point in Baden-Württemberg?

    Here we have the right answer for you…

    A must for every Black Forest holiday and certainly an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. Anyone who wants to get to know the rough Feldberg with all its facets will love Feldbergsteig Tip: You can also book this tour as a night hike on the Feldberg .

    Our tour begins at the “Haus der Natur” directly at the foot of the Feldberg. Parking spaces are available in the immediate vicinity. At the information board at the House of Nature, where we can experience various exhibitions on the subject of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park, we get an overview of our adventurous hike . From here we follow the Feldbergsteig logo, which will accompany us throughout the entire circular hike. We follow the moderately ascending path for about 20 minutes until we reach another signpost. We follow the signs in the direction of Bismarckdenkmal/Feldbergturm/Feldberggipfel and are now on a narrow, steep hiking path that takes us in several serpentines to the Feldberg mountain rescue hut in another 15 minutes. From here we can already see our next destination, the Feldberg Tower, which we reach after a few minutes. In the immediate vicinity, the Bismarck Monument rises steeply in front of us. Some seating areas invite you to take a short break.

    From the Feldberg Tower, which is open from the beginning of May to the end of November, we have a magnificent view in all directions. If the weather is good for you, an unforgettable Alpine panorama will open up before us.

    Anyone who loves Black Forest ham should definitely not miss the ham museum inside the tower.

    A gentle path leads us further towards the Feldberg summit with its well-known weather station. After 20 minutes on an almost flat path, we reach the highest point in Baden-Württemberg - the Feldberg summit with a height of 1,493m.

    An information board shows us countless information about the different directions. Here too we have a limitless view of the vastness of the surrounding Black Forest mountains. In summer you can lose track of time up here, while in autumn gusts of wind make it almost impossible to stay for a longer period of time.

    Our tip: It's best to find out about the current weather conditions before the tour starts.

    As we continue along the path, three different rest stops await us. The Wilhelmer Hut, Zastler Hut and the Baldenweger Hut. Decide for yourself which snack bar it should be before we set off on the most beautiful part of our circular hike.

    The actual Feldbergsteig begins from the Baldenweger Hut. A unique path winds through dense forests and over numerous bridges. An unforgettable hiking experience and a reflection of our untouched Black Forest area.

    After about 45 minutes we reach the Raimartihof - a working mountain inn not far from the idyllic Feldsee. Everyone can find the right snack in the rustic courtyard. Whether hearty or light and sporty, nothing is left to be desired here.

    After a few minutes' walk we reach the picturesque Feldsee . It lies before us quietly and surrounded by dark fir trees. Here we can take one last breath before we tackle the last part of our tour. With an altitude of at least 300 meters, we make a sweaty final sprint. We quickly reach altitude via numerous serpentines and thus leave the basin in which the Feldsee lies. Our path leads directly to the starting point of our tour.

    If you want to get to know the Black Forest from its most beautiful and at the same time highest side, you should embark on the unforgettable Feldbergsteig adventure. The numerous snack bars make the circular hike a rustic Black Forest experience. A perfect mix of nature, adventure and our Swabian treasures!
