Black Forest – Lake Constance

Along the ,Querweg'-path from Lake Titisee to Radolfzell.

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.
  • Wine pleasure at Lake Constance: Did you know, that a beautiful wine region is located at the Lake Constance? A total of six areas form the wonderful wine region.

Schöne Wanderung
Schöne Wanderung die eine gewisse Kondition voraussetzt, gute Unterkünfte, herrliche Natur. Das Highlight sind definitv die knapp zwei Tage durch die Wutachschlucht.

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.
