My husband and I took the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse from Baden-Baden until we exited for the Allerheiligen Monastery Ruins...the drive was peaceful (except for the speeding vehicles, zipping around us) and we loved all of the little "park and hike" spots. It's certainly slower than taking the freeway, but well worth the extra time!

It you want stunning scenery, friendly locals and a wonderful place to get away from the rat-race then this is the place to go!! You can just drive around along this awesome road and stop every so often and explore the forrest. There are plenty of little cafes and restaurents to enjoy the local food It's completely worth the visit

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.

Fantastic scenic drive through the Black Forest. It's especially magical to drive with the sunroof down in summer as the tall trees loom over you! There are many places to stop to see the view, buy souvenirs, or take walks through the forest. The Mummelsee (small lake surrounded by trees at the top of one of the mountains) is a... More

We drove from Baden-Baden to the Plattig parking lot to walk through the Schwarzwald National Park. Hard to believe this was only recently created as a national park!! We walked up the Wildnispfad trail, which was a good combination of wild terrain and open trails. Nice meadows, lovely valley views. Round trip to the parking lot was about 90 minutes.... More

It is always nice to see a lot of trees. This drive lets you see trees on a slightly zig zagging road. And there is the Mummelsee which is midway. This is a lake in the midst of the mountains. It must be prettier when the trees are covered with snow.

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.

My wife comes from this area, so we know the walks, the Tourist shop on mummelsee can be costly, but the Restaurants are not over priced.

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