Westweg, Pforzheim – Basel, 280 km, 11 days
The Black Forest is another romantic corner of Germany, and even in our modern days, when forests are collections of clones of one and the same tree, you will undoubtedly be charmed by the huge firs, the stout villages in deep valleys, the traces of old tourism.
The Westweg is a path on – hm – the west side of the Schwarzwald starting in Pforzheim on the northern edge of the mountains, across the high central parts (Feldberg, 1494 m), viewing the Rhine valley, to Basel in Switzerland. In between are plenty of hotels, open all year, old, good, fairly priced.
The Westweg is the oldest German long distance footpath, dating back to 1900. Over the years, the path has constantly been maintained and improved. It has the predicates of the Premiumwanderweg and Qualitätswanderweg.
This here is a long trail, a very famous one too. But then, you finally visited the Black Forest, on your wish list for years.
