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.

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.

They had prepared a lovely platter of food for us and breakfast for Sunday morning. The house I could not fault in any way, absolutely lovely warm and clean. It was a lovely place to relax after a full day of skiing. It is only a short drive to Feldburg, We recommend this is a nice place to stay Thank you again Steffan.

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.
