Black Forest – Lake Constance

Take a hike through romantic valleys

Have you ever seen the largest low mountain lake in Germany? The Titisee in the Black Forest owes its origin to the Feldberg Glacier, whose moraines form its banks today. To get to Lake Constance, walk along the country path through romantic valleys and unspoilt forests. Passing the small village, all hard-working hikers finally head to Singen via the volcanic cone of the Hegauberge.

Finally, you will reach Lake Constance in the border triangle. In addition to Germany and Austria, Switzerland also has a share of the Lake Constance region. Once in Redolfzell, let your mind wander and look back on the last few days of hiking.

Details about the hiking holiday from the Black Forest to Lake Constance

The hike leads from the Saiger Höhe above the Titisee to the Hochfirst. From there you can expect a fabulous view of the lake, the Feldberg and the summits of the Austrian and Swiss Alps. Completely overwhelmed by the spectacular views you will reach the next highlight of this Eurohike hiking tour.

The Wutach Gorge and the associated nature park not only offer an exciting primeval landscape with romantic gorges, but also raging waterfalls. On day four, you leave the cross-country trail and instead hike past impressive sights: the blue stone and a group of rocks which consist of basalt columns up to ten metres high, shorten the hike.

Highlights of the hiking trip from the Black Forest to Lake Constance

  • The Blumberger Gate: The former riverbed between two mountains is definitely worth a visit. Once there, it is a good to take a look at the well-known ‘Sauschwänzlebahn’, a steam locomotive that roams through the landscape in numerous arches.
  • Hohenhewen Castle ruins: Remains of the castle are still preserved at 846 metres above sea level. The viewing platform build there is particularly spectacular. With a clear view, you have a view over Lake Constance and the Alps.

Useful information about the hike to Lake Constance

Are you in good physical condition and can walk up to six straight hours without any problem? Then the Eurohike hiking trip from the Black Forest to Lake Constance should be manageable. The cross route runs on well-marked hiking and forest trails with short descents that require sure-footedness.

Hike to Lake Constance and discover beautiful sections of the landscape and fantastic views!

Itinerary

You start your tour from the ‚Saiger Höhe’ above Lake Titisee and walk via the Hochfirst. From here you enjoy an amazing view onto Titisee, Feldberg and the peaks of the Austrian and Swiss Alps. The ‚Querweg’-path leads you to the first highlight, the ravine ‚Wutachschlucht’. This nature park houses an exciting unspoilt landscape with romantic gorges and roaring waterfalls.

approx. 5 to 6 hours
22 km
260 m
630 m

Walk steadily along the river Wutach to Achdorf, where the river is diverted towards the river Rhine. Reach today’s Day Finish Blumberg through the ‚Blumberger Pforte’-gate, a former riverbed located between two mountains. Once there, we recommend you have a look at the well-known ‚Sauschwänzlebahn’ (pig tail railway), a steam engine winding through many arches and tight corners on its journey through breathtaking scenery.

approx. 6 hours
25 km
470 m
450 m

Today’s tour leads you away from the path ‚Querweg’. In Randen you find another impressive sight worth a visit: ‚the Blue Stone’, a rock formation consisting of up to 10-metre high basalt columns, which emerged due to an erruption of the Western Hegau volcanoes. The remaining kilometres take you through a charming stretch of land until you reach your Day 4 Finish Tengen.

approx. 5 to 6 hours
18 km
410 m
540 m

From Tengen past the bird sanctuaries of the Hegaualb via the Duggenhart, a slightly higher holt, and near the old mailing route. Walk leisurely through an harmonious forested landscape and after a few hours you already arrive at Engen.

approx. 5 hours
17 km
380 m
350 m

The seven Hegau mountains are towering next to eachother. On top of the local mountain at 846 metres in altitude, remnants of the castle ruin Hohenhewen still remain. From the observation platform marvel at the Hegau mountains and in clear weather conditions even at Lake Constance and the Alps. In the open you walk via summits, past the ruin Mägdeberg all the way to Singen with its countless cultural monuments.

approx. 5 hours
22 km
280 m
430 m

Now you have a choice between two different routes leading to Radolfzell. The longer tour takes you along the ‚Querweg’ past the picturesque lake Steisslinger See to the ruin Homberg, where you can enjoy a marvellous view over lake Untersee and the island Reichenau region and Mettnau peninsula of Radolfzell. The shorter route leaves the ‚Querweg’ and leads you past the nature reserve Ziegeleiweiher to Lake Constance.

approx. 3,5 to 6 hours
16 to 25 km (depends on route choice)
390 m
530 m

Tour character

Walking times of up to 6 hours require a good basic fitness level. The ‚Querweg’ takes you along well-marked and well-maintained walking and forest paths on easy terrain. For some descents (i.e. Wutachschlucht ravine) surefootedness is essential.

Interessante und leichte Wandertour
Die Tour wurde sehr gut vorbereitet, die Unterkünfte mind. 3* Die Route selbst ist einfach und in ideale Tages-Etappen aufgeteilt. Eine oder zwei Etappen dürften durchaus etwas länger sein, war aber auch so okay. Die Wege sind meist Waldwege oder Naturstrassen. Leider gibt es aber auch die eine oder andere längere Asphalt-Strecke zu überwinden. Insgesamt hat mir die Route aber sehr gut gefallen und kann sie wirklich jede(r)(m) Naturliebhaber(in) empfehlen. Insbesondere die ersten drei Tage Waldbaden im Schwarzwald sind sehr erholsam. Apropos Schwarzwald: die beste Schwarzwäldertorte gibt es in der Schattenmühle :-)

Lieber Wandergast, vielen Dank für Ihr tolles Reisefeedback. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Ihnen Ihre Wanderreise vom Schwarzwald zum Bodensee so gut gefallen hat. Leider lassen sich vereinzelte Abschnitte auf Asphaltstraßen nicht vermeiden. Wir bemühen uns natürlich diese so gering wie möglich zu halten und daher führt auch der Großteil der Wanderungen auf Waldwegen und Naturstraßen. Wir hoffen sehr bald wieder eine Reise für Sie organisieren zu dürfen.

Very good tour
A very good tour through lovely, quiet country (good weather too). Eurohike's, Thomas Wallner and Helene Edtmeier were particularly helpful with hotel booking and information about local buses. I recommend this tour to everyone.

Very good
Very pretty countryside and very comfortable hotels. Some great view points and interesting places to see. A huge contrast between castle Hohentwiel and the robbers' castle in the Wutachschlucht. I would recommend this holiday to anyone who likes walking and Germany.

Excellent walk
Six walking days on a well planned route, including an exciting river gorge, ridge walks with excellent views of the high Alps, and a tour of some of the Hegau hills. Radolfzell was a wonderful place to relax at the end.

Wirklich schöner Urlaub!
Unsere diesjährige Wanderung vom Titisee an den Bodensee hielt wieder einmal viel Abwechslung in der Streckenführung, Zeit für Besinnung entlang der Wutach, weitschweifende Blicke ins Hegau aber auch manch witterungsbedingte Herausforderung für uns bereit. Dank der guten Organisation von Eurohike erreichten wir glücklich und zufrieden jeden Abend in ein anderes schönes Hotel. Wir freuen uns schon jetzt auf unseren nächsten Wanderurlaub im nächsten Jahr - selbstverständlich wieder mit Eurohike.
