"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://www.hochschwarzwald.de/Wandern/wanderpass

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour across from Hebelhof and follow the path down to meadow springs. Shortly after getting there, a dirt trail forks to the right and winds downhill. We leave the woods and cross the meadow below the old ski jump. The downward path there curves into the woods after a few meters. The character of the brook valley quickly starts to change into that of a real ravine, and the serpentine trail features many bridges and steps. After approx. 1.5 km, the slope becomes less steep and the ravine becomes broader. We reach the B317 at the national training center (Bundesleistungszentrum). Cross the highway and follow the signposts. From here on, there are delightful paths, blooming meadows, and animal pastures to enjoy. We walk right towards the mountainside and dip into the woods before suddenly arriving at the Fahl Waterfalls. If you’ve never seen the 50 m high waterfall before, do plan enough time. After the waterfall, a level path leads to Todtnau. Follow the course of the valley and walk towards Brandenberg. The war memorial is reached via Todtnau. Soon you will be standing under Germany’s highest, natural waterfall (97 m).The climb proceeds under the cascade. Walk up the steps and continue in the direction of Todtnauberg. The waterfall trail becomes steep now and ends in a small health resort, at Hotel Sternen (bus stop). After arriving at your destination, take the bus to Todtnau and from there back to Feldbergerpass.

Sind mit dem Auto nach Todtnauberg und dann mit dem Bus zum Feldberg gefahren. An der Zufahrtsstrasse kurz vor dem Ortseingang gibt es genuegend Parkplaetze. Es ist ein wunderschoener Weg den ich uneingeschraenkt empfehlen kann. Den Feldberg runter fuehrt der Weg quasi wie durch eine Miniklamm. Ein grosses Lob an die Wegebauer, die sich hier richtig Muehe gegeben haben. Fast nur auf schmalen Pfaden geht es dann nach Todtnau. Im Ort kann man sich dann fuer den letzten knackigen Aufstieg nach Todtnauberg, vorbei am Wasserfall, staerken. Leider ist die Beschilderung nicht so gut wie der Weg selbst und man muss gut aufpassen, dass man Abzweigungen nicht verpasst, oder raten, wo es weitergehen koennte. Ohne GPS Track waeren wir an manchen Wegpunkten sicherlich erstmal falsch gelaufen. Dieser Weg hat die Bezeichnung Premium wirklich verdient!

Sind den Weg vom Feldberg bis Todtnau gelaufen. Der Weg ist sehr abwechslungsreich und geht bis auf eine kurze Passage stetig bergab (Ab Todtnau dann steil bergauf). Die Kinder (4&6) waren sehr angetan auch wenn die Beine der Kleinen phasenweise nicht mehr wollten.
