Black Forest – Lake Constance

Along the ‚Querweg’-path from Lake Titisee to Radolfzell.

Straight from the beginning this diverse walking tour offers many characteristic highlights. Start at Lake Titisee, one of the biggest mountain lakes in Germany, via the Hochfirst down to the Wutachschlucht ravine, which you will walk through in its entire length. The Wutachschlucht ravine allows an incredible view onto a stunning scenery with romantic valleys and unspoilt forests. Then walk past little villages towards Singen via the volcanic cones of the Hegau mountains. Once you arrive at Radolfzell, you have time to relax and retrospect on the walking days gone by whilst enjoying the idyllic Lake Constance.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
