This diverse route winds through the Teuchelwald forest with its giant firs to the idyllic open spot Waldliegewiese, to Berghütte Lauterbad and over the Kienberg before finally descending through Germany's highest rose trail.

The Großvatertanne, the largest fir tree in the Black Forest, is just a short walk from the trail.

Destination

Car Park Teuchelwald ("Bässler Brücke") oder Car Park Schömberger Straße

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail is well-signposted. The nearest starting point to the market square is the Teuchelwald Car Park (signpost Bässler Brücke). It is quite small and limited to 3 hrs parking from Mon-Fri. Therefore, we recommend the 2nd starting point for drivers, the next Car Park on the left side on Schömberger Strasse, 1.5 km outside of the town.

From the Teuchelwald Car Park follow the “Tannenriesen” signs along the Teuchelweg into the forest, past the rustic Waldcafé to the Agnesruhe shelter. There turn left uphill, cross the road and continue to the Schömberger Strasse Car Park (2nd starting point). Walk uphill past the information panel. At the 1st intersection (signpost Wölperweg), turn left and immediately right into a narrow footpath that leads to the idyllic forest meadow Waldliegewiese (Goldene-Kugel-Hütte). Go back on the same path to Wölperweg, then left and left again to Äußere Riviera and right on the “Ostweg” trail to signpost and shelter Sauteichhütte. There the trail turns left into the so-called “Baldenhofer Graben”.

Before taking this footpath, you can make a quick detour to see the grandfather fir (Großvatertanne), the largest fir in the Black Forest. Follow the Ostweg trail straight uphill to the next intersection (signpost Masselkopf), turn right and you will find the fir after 300 m at the end of a narrow footpath. Next to it, on the main trail, there are two more giant firs.

Back at the signpost Sauteichhütte, the Baldenhofer Graben branches off to the right. This natural footpath continues for about 3 km through the idyllic forest. The next highlight of the tour is the Berghütte Lauterbad chalet, a cabin restaurant with a stunning view over the hilly countryside and the Swabian Mountains. Continue on the trail “Oberer Palmenwaldweg” to the Kienberg (signpost Friedrichshöhe). Climbing the “Friedrichsturm” tower is definitely worthwhile for the wonderful panoramic view over the Black Forest and Freudenstadt with its special Nine Men’s Morris layout. With its sculptures, roses, lawn with Kneipp basin, café and mini-golf park, the Kienberg hill is a popular recreational area. Accompanied by the fragrance of numerous roses and with a scenic view over Freudenstadt, you follow the serpentine ‘Rose trail’ (Rosenweg) down to the  Teuchelwald Car Park (Bässler Brücke).

(The words printed in bold are the names of the signposts.)

Sehr schöne Wanderweg, der überwiegend durch den Wald führt und somit auch gut für sonnige Tage geeignet ist. Immer wieder finden sich Bänke am Wegesrand. Eine längere Strecke führt über einen wurzelreichen und naturnahen Weg. Eben ein Wanderweg und nicht für Spaziergänger oder Nordic Walking Fans. Die Beschilderung ist teilweise durch viele Wege überfrachtet, zum Ende hin sehr dürftig. Da ich aber die Kartenfunktion der App genutzt habe genügte ein gelegentlicher Blick auf das Handy um sich problemlos zurecht zu finden. Sehr schöne Einkehrmöglichkeiten. Die kleinen Anstiege sind mit etwas Kondition wirklich kein Problem. Zu beachten ist nur, dass bei oder nach Regen der Streckenabschnitt mit Wurzeln sehr rutschig wird.
