Make holiday rental accommodation or a self catering cottage in the Black Forest, Germany your home away from home

The Black Forest is a stunning region of dramatic highlands and thick forests in the Baden-Wurttemberg state of Germany. The region, made famous for its Black Forest Gateau, cuckoo clocks and cherry schnapps, is one of the most popular places in Germany to come and relax, surrounded by stunning scenery and fully immersed in rich, traditional and exceedingly friendly culture. There are very few places in the world that manage to combine stunning scenery with engrossing customs.

Things to do in the Black Forest, Germany

The Black Forest is one of the most beautiful and well managed forests in the world, and almost all of the self catering Black Forest accommodation is made from wood cut locally, which gives the whole forest a natural, unified and attractive appearance. There are dozens of towns, cities and villages in which to take a cottage in the Black Forest, so you really can get away from it all during a short break to the Black Forest, Germany.

Although the popularity of the Black Forest has dwindled slightly since the heydays of the 1960’s, the appeal has certainly not diminished. Walkers and hikers flock from acrossEuropeto take advantage of idyllic little cottages in the Black Forest, which are perfectly positioned for forays into the woods on foot, on bike or in the saddle. After a long day of hiking, the many spas found scattered throughout the Black Forest, Germany, offer endless hours of relaxation and recuperation.

There are great regions of lakes in the Black Forest, Germany, and if you are hoping to enjoy the area without strapping on your walking boots or picking up you bike, a trip to the lakes of Titisee, Mummelsee and Schluchsee is a great choice. Windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving trips are absolutely excellent on the lakes, and a wonderful way to relax on a short break to the Black Forest, Germany.

The Black Forest is filled with man made marvels too. The UNESCO world heritage site of the Pforzheim Monastery is a genuine treasure, worth investigating from any self catering Black Forest accommodation. There are amazing baroque churches throughout the region, and many of the smaller villages have fantastic little museums commemorate local history and lifestyles.

Places to visit on holiday to the Black Forest, Germany

Baiersbronn is the premier ski resort in the Black Forest, with 9 ski lifts and plenty of skiing for learner and intermediate skiers. The resort is at a low altitude, so snow cover can be variable, and although there is little to excite experienced skiers, there is always a wonderful atmosphere of fun and excitement from Black Forest accommodation in Baiersbronn.

Dachsberg is a charming town in the Black Forest, where traditional cultures still thrive, providing on of the finest places to indulge in the region’s most famous export, the Black Forest Gateau.

Travel to the Black Forest, Germany

There are two airports in the region, but the closest airport to the Black Forest is the small Basel-Mulhouse Airport (BSL). Although small, the airport receives a surprising number of direct flights from the UK, many of which are provided by easyJet. A hire car is always recommended, especially if you are only on a short break to the Black Forest, Germany.

Excellent property well located with friendly owners

5 of 5
What a wonderful place - not just a place to stay but a place to have a true black forest farm experience for kids and adults alike. We had the best time here and will surely be going back! The actual apartment is spacious, clean and has the most beautiful views. It is a short distance from the town of Elzach. The owners are so friendly and helpful; really going out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. My kids loved helping feeding the animals, milking the cows and seeing how cheese is made - what a wonderful experience for kids. We were a short 20 mins drive from Schonach where we went sledging. I really can't praise this place enough!

perfect holiday flat and hosts

5 of 5
Hermann, Andrea and Leonie are considerate and friendly hosts, who will do every thing they can to ensure your stay in their beautiful holiday flat is relaxing and enjoyable. The location is very quiet and you will wake to often watch deer feeding only a few meters from your front door. The area is full of interesting places to visit and hiking trails lead in every direction direct from the property. The flat has every thing you need for a relaxing holiday and should you require any help or assistance then one of the family will always be available to help. We look forward to returning to stay again and offer our sincere thanks to Hermann, Andrea and Leonie for their wonderful hospitality. Kind Regards, Allan & Veronique Jones
