You can cut down a tree, instructed by a guide, and observe wild animals from the raised hide. Have you ever seen a wild capercaillie cock? In the nature reserve Nothern Black Forest this is still possible!

                                  Ski: On the Sommerberg mountain in Bad Wildbach, there are two ski lifts with floodlight, as well as extensive cross-country skiing tracks available. 2 sledges and 1 plastic bobsleigh are available for you free of charge in Charlottes Forsthaus. On the Kaltenbronn Mountain (8 km; approx. 1000 m above sea level) you find another, region-wide famous lift with floodlight. In Enzklösterle (10 km) there is yet another lift with floodlight. In Gompelscheuer (12 km) you can toboggan year-round on a specially prepared track. Further skiing areas in Baiersbronn and the Black Forest High Street (Schwarzwaldhochstraße) can be reached in about 40 minutes by car. Ski hikes to the two upland moors Wildsee and Holohsee with a meal in the outstanding Swabian restaurant 'Grünhütte' or the inn 'Sarbacher' on the Kaltenbronn Mountain (way back possible by bus) are two of the highlights of this winter sports region. Some even prefer to visit this 'hiker's paradise' in the snow-free seasons.
