Our hiking trail leads on the old "Jägerpfad" up to the Ahaberg. Continue on the historical "Grenzweg" to "Bildstein". There awaits us a geological rarity for the Southern Black Forest - and a unique view: with a clear visibility, the view raches across the lake to the 3,614 m high Tödi in the Swiss Alps. After the descent, it goes back from Aha along the Schluchsee-shore. It may be that two worlds clash here: first lonely paths in the woods and then the much-traveled lakeside path. But you can also find loneliness here: early in the morning, when the sun rises over the lake, or on foggy November days, when the lake unfolds its own magic.

 

The Jägersteig is not suitable for pushchairs! - Back carry can be borrowed at the tourist information Schluchsee.

 

"Open your eyes" on the high black forest premium hiking trails. Because on every way there is a stamp point in the form of a cuckoo clock. These offer the opportunity to document the hikes by stamp in the Hochschwarzwälder Wanderpass. Further information can be found at https:

Author’s recommendation

Don’t forget your bathing suit. The lakeshore offers many possibilities to cool off!

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour from the hiker’s parking lot “Im Wolfsgrund”. Alternatively we could start at the train station in Schluchsee-Aha (information board at the Seglerheim junction). From the parking lot “Im Wolfsgrund”, we walk under the B500 underpass, follow the hiking trail to the left, and cross the L156 to Lenzkirch. After crossing, we then take the hike and bike path along Freiburger Straße (B500). After a short distance, the entry to Schluchsee’s Hunter’s Hike [Jägersteig] comes into view. At this point, we enter the Bannwald forest and follow the narrow path past a woodyard until we come up to a cabin. From here, we walk to the Hanselefelsen, a crag, turn left, and continue on a wider path. After a short walk, the sensational view comes into sight! After crossing over Ahaberg, we follow the path in the direction of Bildstein. On this part of the hike, we can either continue on the direct route to Bildstein or explore the newly created “Pirschpfad”. At the lookout point Bildstein, the view of Schluchsee is exhilarating. After a rest and with renewed energy, we embark on our descent to Unteraha by means of a narrow path. The path takes us to a boat dock, where we walk along the lake until we reach Amalienruhe. This headland offers a fine view across the lake. To round off, the tour takes us to the town of Schluchsee, where we cross the pedestrian bridge to get to the other side of the train tracks. From here, we walk past Café am See, back to the parking lot for hikers.

Ein sehr schöner abwechslungsreicher Wanderweg mit einigen Aussichten auf den größten Stausee im Schwarzwald. Die höchste Erhebung ist der Bildstein mit 1134m.

Schöne Wanderung die gut machbar ist. Größtenteils über wunderschöne Pfade durch den Wald. Der Teil am See entlang ist ebenfalls sehr schön und entspannt zu laufen. Die Straße hat uns nicht gestört, zumal diese auch nur in Teilbereichen zu hören ist. Empfehlenswerte Tour!
