We went here to enjoy a day out on the mountains.. Firstly on arrival we, like other motorists were directed to an ugly, massive parking complex.. This was an expensive parking - you don't need to pay to go walking but here they make you.. Top tip: Park lower down and take bus (usually free with a guest/tourist card..

Approaching the start you are faced with lots of tacky shops and ugly hotels.. Nature has been spoiled here.

The cable car is expensive and the distance it covers so short it is best avoided..

The mountain isn't very interesting and all in all it is best avoided as you be sharing the space and the path with thousands of others..

During summer season it’s nice to go up there and admire everything around from the top point of the Black forest.

Restaurants and even a ham museum in the top.

Perfect place for hiking with many options.

Just if you decide to go up and down with the cable car it’s expensive.. 12€ for a short distance.

We visited in the summer. Took the cable car the short distance up the mountain. (is easily walkable and not too steep if you prefer - around 2km I think).

We then walked uphill (again not too steep) to the viewing point and tower. Great view. It was a fairly clear day and we could see the Alps in the distance.

We continued on a loop trail behind the view point, which took us through a small portion of forest, up steps at the side of the cafe/hut, back up the the tower and onto the cable car. Made a nice scenic walk of around 4 miles.

Great 8 mile hike with 2000 feet of elevation. We started at nature center toward Feldberg then looped around to Feldberg. There are a few Huts if you want to stop rest and eat. Trail is well marked and intersects with many other trails.

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 round. I chose to hike to the lake first and then follow the route from the lake right up to the highest point. While descending to the station, however, I chose the bus, since my legs were almost giving up :-) The place is extremely beautiful, apart from being the highest point in the black forest, the aerial view from the top is astounding.There are small benches on the top, where one can sit for hours and enjoy the solitude, sometimes the tingling bells of the cattle echoing from the far away mountains.
For the ones not interested in hikes, cable car close to the bus-stop will take you right to the top.Take the bus 7300 from the station and while returning, take the same bus to Titisee. Wish you all a pleasant experience.

The Feldberg in the Black Forest is a great place to visit if you are staying in the Freiburg (Breisgau Germany) or Basel (Switzerland) area. With its fairly bare top, you get fantastic view from up there across the Back Forest, the Vosges in the Alsace and as far as the snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps on clear days, mostly in late September or October. You can drive almost all the way to the top, to a small plateau where you find a nice variety of shops, restaurants and hotels. During the vacation and on nice Sundays, the parking lots (fee) fill up pretty fast and you can drive along the dead-end road which terminates by the hotels, but this can mean you walk the last part. So get there early or avoid Sundays.
From the parking lots you can either walk to the top, which is not far, or take the chairlift and then walk around the flat top. What’s also beautiful for the more serious hiker is to go down to the Feldsee, about 45’ to 60’ minutes’ walk from the Feldberg; a gorgeous little mountain lake nestled between deeply wooded slopes, a real beauty.

We were staying in Freiburg for a few days. Had planned prior to travel to see a tiny sneak peak of the vast Schwarzwald. We only had one day reserved for this.
We got a map and some hiking tips and routes in written form from tourist office. We asked some locals for hiking tips: what would they recommend for 4-5 hours hike? Everyone said "Titisee", which is a small like near Freiburg. Arrived to Titisee early in the morning. We found out it is basically just a small lake which you can walk around along the borders. If you have ever been to Finnish Archipelago, you would know that for a Finn, this was not really a sight/much mentioning for.

So, we took a bus to Feldberg. There were 6-10 different trails to choose from. You can reach the top of Feldberg basically by "hiking" around 20 minutes from the Nature House/main parking lot. It is not much of a walk/hike if you are in good fit. If not, it`s still manageable, so I`d say it`s a good tourist attraction/sight. From top of Feldberg, the are great mountain views. If you want to see a beautiful lake inside the forest, you can walk the opposite direction and it`s about 30 minutes hike throughout the forest to the Feldsee.

We did a 12.2 km trail around Feldberg starting from the "Nature House" and ending there as well. On trail-information it was estimated to take about 4 hours. It took us exactly 3h 58 minutes, so well done trail-guide! Our 4 hours included 40 minutes stop at an 300 years old inn (or so they said on the sign…) for applecake and coffee as well as at least 20 minutes altogether for birdwatching and photographing.

It is not really hiking, if you have ever hiked in Finnish Lapland/Alps/any other place in the world…it`s more like relaxed Sunday-walk with tens of other walkers in the forest. For a Finn, very social event. The first part of the trail (to the top of Feldberg) is on asphalt! Still, you need to be able to go up and down on forest footpaths, so have a good pair of shoes on for the longer trails. Most of other hikers spoke German with us, there were a lot of families and middle-aged couples.

First, we went there in Easter, which is really "off peak" for most of Germany. There were hardly any people.

However, it seems like the place is extremely busy during skiing and summer season.

You can take your car very close to the top. From there, either a 30 min hike up the top or a cable car ride.

When we went up the cable car, it was really foggy, so couldnt see much. Later in the afternoon things cleared up, so we decided to go again (paying euro 19 again). The views from the top were breathtaking. You can see most of blackforest, feldsee, even upto Jungfrau. It was spectacular.

Take warm clothes even if you are going in Easter as it is cold. There was still some snow around.

There are other walks and nature trails as well, which we didnt go on.

Overall a must-visit

We were there so that our kids could learn skiing. It was their 2nd time skiing but they are just beginner. The slopes are beautiful and really good for beginners.
We had booked for ski school in Skischule Feldberg. It was a total rip off. They are totally not professional. On the 1st day we bring our kids, they wanted to bring them on the ski lift to come down. We said that hey are beginner and they haven't skied for a year. We requested that they be teach on the kids beginner slope but they would not do it. They didn't even have a name tag or vest to mark the kids that are in their school. They don't even have a kids ski lift to teach children. So we took our kids out from the school but we did not manage to get a refund. The ladies at the shop spoke English with me in the beginning but when we went to complain, they said that they can't speak english. And we have to pay for the ski that we never use as we can't go skiing with the kids without being in the school.
We went to Thoma. They are so professional that our kids can ski so well in the end of our trip. Totally recommend Thoma ski school. They have their own kids ski lift as they call it Ski kindergarten. They have so many teachers. Kids are put to correct levels as they test them before putting them to higher levels. They learn really fast as there are so many groups with different levels. The kids have a paper with our phone number in their pockets, name tags, vest and with so many teachers, there are nothing to worry about. Such a different in 2 different schools. So never go to Skischule Feldberg, bad service and total unprofessional.
