High Black Forest map

Last Updated on 06/10/2023

The High Black Forest is the southern part of the mountain range around the Feldberg mountain. This part is named high for a simple reason – here is the highest point of the Black Forest. The set includes narrow mountain roads, high, albeit thin, waterfalls and gorges.
After the Triberg waterfall, Lake Titisee and Feldberg are the second point of attraction for the largest number of tourists, which is facilitated by the only convenient federal road from east to west in the Black Forest, passing from Freiburg past Titisee, and a greater amount of snow on the mountain in winter.
