Today you will walk along wonderful forest trails through the Black Forest National Park. Have a little rest at the idyllic lake Buhlbachsee with its wild ducks. Enjoy the fantastic view over the Black Forest from the Rossbühl (starting point of the paragliders) and from the top of the tower Buchkopfturm. Along the Renchtalsteig trail and the border trail you will get to the Waldblick hotel Kniebis, where you are already expected.
