Long-distance routes and tour tips
From north to south enjoying one magnificent view after another: that’s what the Black Forest Panorama Cycle Route is all about. And because the high ridges are reached without too much effort, this is a great option for less athletic cyclists.
The route runs through the eastern Black Forest and has no steep climbs. From Pforzheim it follows the Enz river to Bad Wildbad. In summer, to save a 300-metre climb to the top of the mountain, you can take your bike on the funicular railway. From the summit, the route switches between woodland and fields as it continues through the Wildsee moor and past Lake Hohloh. Next up are ancient ponds and farms and numerous panoramas, which give way to beautiful valleys from Villingen. After Lake Titisee, a great place to relax and enjoy the views, you reach the Wutach river, which you follow downstream to your final destination of Waldshut-Tiengen on the Rhine.
Terrain: moderate climbs over the Black Forest hills; the only steep climb can be avoided by taking the funicular railway. The paths are mainly on asphalt, otherwise crushed brick/stone.
Scenery: Black Forest uplands with forests, moors and lakes, lots of stunning vantage points. The route also runs along narrow rivers through picturesque valleys on its way to the Rhine.
