From Titsee lake, the Westweg continues to follow the European watershed. There, the Westweg diverges into two main trails. While the western route heads toward Basel via Feldberg, Belchen, and Blauen, the eastern route crosses Herzogenhorn, Blössing, and Hohe Möhr to set course for the Swiss city am Rheinknie via the geologically interesting Dinkelberg.

From Kalte Herberge hostel, the Westweg continues to follow the B 500 on its eastern side, staying above it initially and below it later on. At Lachenhäusle, the view reaches out far until disappearing in the deep Simonwälder valley. Just a few kilometers beyond that, the remains of a defensive fortification can be recognized at Türkenlouis-Schanz on Hohler Graben (1,045m) in the fern tree forest. With a majestic view to the south, the trail circles around Doldenbühl (1,098m) and then heads toward the inconspicuous Weißtannenhöhe (1,190m) via Fahrenhalde with its many views. Down to the right is Bernau, with the horizon-filling Feldberg massif towering over it. The trail leads over Fürsatzhöhe and the traditional Berghäusle hiking home down to the Oberaltenweg trail, with its typical Black Forest farms. With every step toward lake Titisee,  the question of  “which path to take” pushes itself into the foreground more and more. For at the rest area at Titisee, the Westweg divides into two routes.

Western route: The western route winds down directly to the lake, follows the shore to the west and climbs up to Keßlerhöhe (1,017m) with beautiful views of the lake. From there, it’s just a short distance to the tower at the famous Adlerschanze fortification, high behind Hinterzarten, the home of the successful “Black Forest Eagle.” From Scheibenfelsen cliffs, a narrow path steeply descends to Oberzarten.

 

Author’s recommendation

From Scheibenfelsen cliffs at the Adlerschanze fortification, a zigzag along the edge of the skiing arena descends directly to the Adlerplatz square in Hinterzarten.
