Ostweg, Pforzheim – Schaffhausen, 245 km, 12 days
The third of the classic long distance hiking trails in the Black Forest is the Ostweg, the East Way. The eastern side of the Black Forest is somewhat less prominent. Hills and farmland alternate. The climate is influenced by the Danube valley, which you will cross at a certain point. The trail alos passes the source of the Neckar. On the other side of the Danube river lies the Swabian Jura, another attractive walking region.
Of course this is a beautiful walk, like the other classic trails of the Schwarzwald: well kept, well-chosen paths, well marked. And the Black Forest offers plenty accommodation options.
