Leisure in the Black Forest – our tips for families

The very first activities to mention of course are the many walking and hiking opportunities from right outside the hotel to the surrounding area – Hinterzarten is part of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park Region. We’ll be happy to give you advice at the hotel Reception: Some of our employees are actually certificated Nature Park guides! One of the special features is our gorges – that much we can already reveal. Nearby are the Ravenna and Wutach Gorges – two spectacular wonders of nature. The Hinterzarten nature adventure trail is just a short distance away on foot – the motto of the trail: the joy of nature, an all-round sensory experience.

Excursions with children in the Black Forest
