The lake is calm and normal but it is located very near to many interesting shops that are selling the famous German made cuckoo clocks of all forms, types and sizes!! (Drubba Cuckoo Clocks). Get some as sourvenirs will be very handy!

This is a beautiful lake in the Black Forest. When compared to Schluchsee it's much smaller but it has many more options of hotels and restaurants. It's a great place to spend the day, take a walk, have some hot chocolate or eat some traditional...More

Given that Titisee is billed as one of the main attractions in Schwarzwald we were somewhat underwhelmed. It’s ok to spend an hour or maybe two with a nice meal. Or maybe we are spoiled by much more beautiful lakes and villages in nearby Switzerland....More

We were going to take the train from Freiburg but a replacement bus was operating. The bus took about 30-45 mins I think, very scenic, but train probably would’ve been more so!

I wasn't actually there on a Sunday - I imagine they would be as it's very touristy, in fact most of the shops tend to sell typical tourist 'tack'.

Staying in Freiburg 5 1/2 days in June - Itinerary Check (5 Replies)
Day 1/2. Wednesday. From Colmar to Freiburg. Just having been in Alsace 5 days> Get oriented to Freiburg and visit the usual hotspots in town. Day 1. Train->Hinterzarten->Titisee->Feldberg. Might hike at Feldberg. This is a week link in the itinerary. I might scrap this and go with a Black Forest Tour. Lake Titisee is a bit too touristy for me but it's on the route to Feldberg. Day 2. Train to Triberg where we'll visit the Black Forest Museum, the Waterfall and the Cuckoo Clock...More

If yu are visiting Triberg, do the "Schwarzwaldbahnerlebnispfad" hike. Starts at the museum inside Triberg trainstation and is a nice and scenic hike. It consists of two tours, where I feel doing both on the same day is only for the passionate hiker ... And you will mostly walk alone and not bump into very few number of people only.
More clarification on BWT (4 Replies)
Does that mean we can travel to Freiburg from Basel and from Freiburg to Lake Titisee, Triberg and all the way back to Basel using the BWT on the same day? Thanks

The BWT allows you to travel the route you have described. You'll see a lot of great scenery on the way. Like altamiro suggests, check the schedules. You can start your travel before 9 am if you do this trip on Sat or Sun. Triberg is rather touristy, and it's a long uphill walk from the train station into town. If you read German, the Black Forest Museum is excellent, but I don't think the rest of the town is worth the time. You might enjoy stopping for an hour or so or a quick meal in...More

On foot: Black Forest from Freiburg (7 Replies)
Hi, my husband and I are planning to be in Freiburg at the end of August for 3 full days. We won't have a car and will likely take a train to see some part of the Black Forest in more depth one of the days (I'm thinking Lake Titisee). What I'm really not sure about is seeing the forest on foot. We'll likely be staying near the central train station or center of town. I can tell from the map that we will be walking distance to the forest, but how much is there to see of the forest directly...More

Schauinsland is well worth the trip. It's relatively easy to get to via public transport - you can take the tram to the end of one of the lines, then pick up a bus that takes you to the base of the cable car. Once at the top, you can hike down, I believe, if you feel like it. We hiked a bit at the top (my daughter was in Freiburg for an exchange year, but had messed up her knee so we couldn't hike as much as we wanted). There's also a viewing tower near the end of the cable car.
