Fun road to drive with a length of 65 kilometer. Can't miss it because the signs are very clear. We drove from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt but of course you can also drive it the other way around. Be aware there a lot of motorbikes on the road and sometimes trail hogs.
There are several sightseeing spots, landmarks, lakes or waterfalls to stop or make a walk.
Best stop points are the geroldsau waterfalls and the Mummelsee. We also tried to reach the Bühlerhöhe castle but couldn't find it.
The road is perfectly maintained.

This drive coincides with the B500 highway from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt and is a wonderfully beautiful drive passing through the Black Forest. I strongly recommend stopping at Lake Mummelsee and taking a stroll on one of the forest trails. There are many of them rising moderately (easy enough for my pregnant wife to finish) that take you up to a nearby peak that offers beautiful panorama views of the lake and the forest.

You can also take a short detour and visit waterfall Allerheiligin or stop at Ruhestein.

If you are traveling around that part of Germany, I would strongly recommend using the B500 Hochstrasse route.

The Schwarzwald Hochstrasse is certainly a beautifull scenic route with lots of curves and under normal circumstances I would certainly enjoy a sporty ride along it.

But as it happened I was there with my wife and two young children, when lots of fresh snow was falling from the sky. So even with winter tires I choose to very carefully (read slowly) guide my rear drive BMW over the slippery road.

Traveled the entire high road (B500) from Baden-Baden Freudenstadt, and would love to do it again. It is absolutely spectacular. Well-maintained roads and epic scenery is what its all about, with some stunning panoramic views towards the Rhine River and France. We stopped in Mummelsee to get some kirschwasser souvenirs and admire the view. You can also get authentic cuckoo clocks and Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest cake) here, we sat down for the latter in Freudenstadt at the end of our Black Forest journey. There are some popular Michelin-starred restaurants here just off the route in Baiersbronn and surrounds.

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.

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

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
