Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Schluchsee, Germany your home away from home

It is virtually impossible to think of a more serene locale than this reservoir lake in the Breisgau-Hochschwarzland region of Germany that sits about 1000m above sea level. But there is more than stunning scenery to this resort; it is the scene of many outdoor activities including water sports and the winter favourites of skiing and skating. It?s proximity to Feldberg, the Black Forest?s highest peak, assures visitors of an unforgettable ski holiday as well as sweeping views of surrounding mountain ranges. Holiday houses of different sizes as well as a variety of modern apartments are just a few of the kinds of accommodation holidaymakers can expect as they plan their Schluchsee voyage.

Things to do on holiday to Schluchsee, Germany

Schluchsee and skiing are almost one and the same thing. Some of the most enchanting ski runs are found in this locale. Whether visitors prefer ski jumping or cross-country skiing, they will find the terrain more than apt for their activity of choice. During winter the lake freezes and forms a natural skating rink that can accommodate many skaters at a go. For those not keen on these forms of winter entertainment, there are horse-drawn sleighs waiting to carry them at a more leisurely pace. During summer the lake?s waters become conducive for swimming and plenty of other water sports including water skiing and sport fishing. Next to the lake there is a pool with an artificial current which supplies a terrific playing area for kids. Perhaps before cooling off at the lake it?s wise to take advantage of the beautiful weather and over 160km of hiking trails to do some exploring. The 18km path that guides visitors around the lake?s edge is a particular treat. As one can guess, the terrain is also ideal for mountain biking and bikers will no doubt be salivating at the close to 300km of signposted routes. Among these are easy trails for beginners as well as more challenging courses for those seeking to stretch themselves. There is also a cruiser which takes visitors on leisure trips on the lake.

Those who will be holidaying with their kids will be interested in visiting the Aqua Fun adventure park that lies just next to the lake. It houses gigantic slides that are sure to have the children screaming in delight. There is also a large lawn that provides a more than adequate playground for energetic youngsters.

Those planning a trip to this part of Germany should make arrangements to arrive at the Frankfurt International Airport which serves in excess of 100 airlines, among them the respected Lufthansa.

We all love the house and its very high standard of equipment and cleanliness, the best I have ever seen in a rented property. It was a special birthday celebration and they had found a great restaurent about 3km away so surprises all round. There is a good and handy pizza restaurent less than 1 km which does take away as well as eat in. We enjoyed having seating and BBQ to enjoy outside. The hot tub was loved by the children and the coffee machine by the adults ! Henry welcomed us and explained everything in good English. We thoroughly enjoyed having the Hochschwarzwald cards which enabled us to enjoy the toboggan at Todtnau 3 times, water parks, train rides and tree climbing at no extra cost, such a saving for 9 people, thank you ! I would certainly recommend to friends.

Our children, aged 2 and 4 years old, especially liked the garden and the surrounding fields. The house is set in a peaceful area, with a short drive to Lake Schluchsee. There are ample walks nearby and numerous activities to enjoy around the Lake. We visited during the Summer, but would love to return one day in the Winter. Steffen and family, thank you for our wonderful stay in your house!

                                                                                    We felt totally at home in this property and were very sad to have to leave. We stayed for 5 nights just two of us and our dog. The living room was very spacious and the tv was great and a nice size. Really enjoyed watching all the German programmes but mostly we enjoyed the view of the Alps from the back of the property. I cannot emphasize how wonderful it was to see on a clear day. The view in general is excellent anyway and Schluchsee is only a few minutes away by car. A massive lake compared to Titisee. While the kitchen is small it had everything we needed to be able to cook in there. A small dishwasher, we did not use and a fridge. The bathroom was a nice size and the shower was wonderful and very powerful. The bed was extremely comfortable and bedroom a great size for us. The settee in the living room was so and I think it folds out to another bed, but we did not need this. The only minor downside to this apartment was that the lights in the living room and kitchen were very low and I bumped my head a few times on the lamps. Also the internet signal was sometimes quite weak downstairs so I had to stand on the stairs to get on the internet. I pointed these things out to the owner and they can be easily sorted anyway. It did not hamper our stay in the property as we found it totally lovely. The owner and her family were also very helpful. We also enjoyed watching the ducks trot past the house in the day time. All in all I cannot recommend this property enough and the fact that we had the free rail pass was a great idea, which we used. Infact we enjoyed ourselves that much we are already planning on returning at the end of the year. Truly a wonderful setting in a very clean and well maintained property
