It's a wonderful drive, and offers mid-sized towns to small villages - as well as the Zuflucht look out point, the Lotharpfad and all sorts of wonderful views of the mountains of the Black Forest.

Always worth a detour and taking your time is no hassle, there´s so much to see and a stop at one of the numerous cafés for an afternoon cup of coffee and a lsice of local cake is not to be missed.

Nice scenic route with great views, but also good restaurants and hiking trails along the route. Avoid weekends, as traffic can be slow.

A delightful drive through the highlands of the Black Forest. Worth the detour. Thousands of motorcycles on the road on a summer day...
