Lakes, waterfalls, swimming pools, mountain peaks, alpine huts... there are plenty of them in the Southern Black Forest.

The Titisee is about 20 km from the Waldhotel and is a popular destination for strolling, swimming and boating or pedal boating. Lake Titisee owes its formation to the Feldberg glacier. Nestled in the Feldberg scenery, it is an absolute jewel of the Black Forest. On the north shore is the spa town of Titisee-Neustadt with the famous Hochfirst ski jump. The surrounding Black Forest towns of Hinterzarten, Breitnau, Saig and Lenzkirch are interesting to discover.
