The route, 500, started at Baden-Baden (in the north of Black Forest) and takes you to Freudenstadt. We travelled by camper and the road takes you through the forest. The road is wide enough and there are not many hairpins.

Have traveled some of the most "scenic routes" in many many countries. This was by and far one of the least scenic routes I've taken. If you like to see deforestation, mining, etc., then go for it, otherwise, not worth the time. Not sure I...More
