An easy hiking for family

It is easy to climb this mountain, 40 min with a 6 y.o. kid without much support. The place is not as nature as it should be but the sight is worth the hike.

When we reach there everyone suggested not to go up as it raining and we cant enjoy the beauty of Black forest valley. But we decided to go up by cable car. It was splendid experiance. When... More

A visit to Feldberg in Summer is a must, if you are visiting the Black Forest. This trip can be clubbed with the visit to Titisee(the famous lake) in the black forest accessible by bus from Feldberg. For hikers, there are multiple options, either to hike to the lake first from the station and then upto Feldberg or the otherway... More

We didn't have time (or energy) to do the whole R5 trail so we parked on Rinkenstrasse at Jagerheim Gasthaus. Took us 1+ hr to hike up on R5 (blue trail), nice views during the hike and at the top.

We went to Feldberg as a warm up trek before climbing Mount Santis! The trek was pretty easy as it was summers. It gets pretty hot in summers. The view from the top of the mountain is amazing. If you're planning to go to Feldberg, you should also go to Feldsee which is a small lake seen from the top... More

Gorgeous view in good weather. But go anyway if clouds are blocking the view - the feeling of "being all alone" when the mist drifts through the mountains is an experience nonetheless.

Feldberg is worth a trip in the summer for the great easy hiking (if you are moderately fit and have appropriate footwear). I would highly recommend the walk down to Feldsee - a stunning glaciated lake.

We took two buses from Titisee to reach here. Took the cable car up as the sky looked threatening. What a view from the top! Wish there were some English explanation to tell us what mountains or countries that we could see from here However, we were not prepared for the cold and wind. So, if you are coming even... More

Aim was to get to the top of Feldberg and walk round to Feldsee lake. We did it. I am not the fittest and nearly 50 but was really pleased to achieve this walk. Ok so we took the cable car up to the Bismark monument then about 20-30 walk up hill to the top. We then followed the nature... More

Black Forest - doable for non-hikers?

A friend and I are planning a 14 day trip around Germany in late September and we wanted to take a day to explore the Black Forest (Freiburg would be our base, though we are open to other suggestions - last paragraph has our itinerary). Problem is, I am not a hiker and do not have any experience hiking or own any hiking gear (same for my friend). From what I have seen, Feldberg seems a great "goal" for the day of hiking, but would this be doable in "normal" clothes (leather, flat soled boots, but not hiking boots, jeans, sweatshirt, scarf, etc.). We are fit and young, so I am not terribly concerned about the actual physical exertion aspect (knowing full well that not having the right gear will wear us out more), but if we emerge from this with completely torn up shoes and/or (more importantly) would be taking unnecessary risks by not having the proper gear (compass, extra clothes, extra food, whatever else hikers carry with them), that would not be worth it. There seem to be some paved streets hikers share with cars, but if having to stick to those streets will make us miss out on the best scenery or that feeling of walking in the woods, that might make it not worth it.

Advice from hikers and non-hikers alike would be greatly appreciated. There seems to be little information available online about the specifics of hiking in the Black Forest, like sample itineraries or "what to wear/bring" so any info along those lines would be very helpful.

If anyone has ideas for other places in Germany to experience nature casually, that would be appreciated as well. For reference, we will start in Munich for 3 days, 1 day at Schloss Hohenschwangau/Neuschwanstein, 1 day in Freiburg, 1 day in Black Forest, 1 day in Heidelberg, 1 day in Cologne, 2 days in Dresden, and end with 3 days in Berlin. I am mostly focused on art and music, but also love nature, and if the Black Forest doesn't work out, was considering a day trip from Berlin to Spreewald, which looks enchanting. I also imagine Neuschwanstein will also provide some opportunity to see nature, and any info on those locations would be appreciated as well.

Thank you in advance for your help!
