Destination guide

Delve into the Black Forest

Discover a world of fascinating folklore and endless family fun in Germany's Black Forest region, a favorite destination in the country's southwest. Stretching along the Rhine Valley and home to vineyards, spas and festivals, along with an array of natural delights, the area offers the perfect getaway for any traveler who demands a little more from their vacation. Adventure in sight, you'll need somewhere to call home during your stay, and from quaint cottages in picturesque hamlets to plush condos in the region's upmarket towns, Black Forest vacation rentals offer up a host of options for families, friends or both.

Things to do

Explore different flavors of the Black Forest

Around 55 miles south of Baden-Baden, Freiburg offers up a different flavor of the Black Forest, namely a vibrant university town with winding cobblestone streets and perpetual sunshine. Although families will want to head straight to the nearby Europa Park for an action-packed outing, a highlight of any stay in a Black Forest vacation rental in this neck of the woods must be the chance to soar to the top of the Schlossberg aboard the Schlossbergbahn cable car. A beer garden at the summit provides the perfect spot from which to soak up the views of the 11th-century Münster cathedral below.

Activities

Discover spa towns in the Black Forest

Opting for a rental in the likes of Baden-Baden and Bad Wildbad, both trendy 19th-century spa towns in the north of the forest, makes striking architecture and thermal baths part of the package. A lively selection of cultural events, outdoor activities in the Black Forest National Park and a splash of old-world luxury only serve to add to the charm. Once you add in the option to explore the picturesque small towns of the Kinzig and Gutach valleys on a scenic jaunt along the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse, you have a vacation spot that's as diverse as it is memorable.

Weather

Enjoy the Black Forest all year round

There's never really a bad time to enjoy a stay in a Black Forest vacation rental. The region not only attracts the most sunshine but also serves up a thorough dousing of snow in the winter months. In between, colorful processions bring revelry to the streets from mid-January to Lent while late summer to fall offers an idyllic background for hitting up the wineries along the Badische Weinstrasse. During the holidays, traditional Christmas markets are numerous and interest in rentals shifts to those homes dotted high in the area's ski resorts.

Natural features

Natural delights in the Black Forest

Few vacation destinations offer up a landscape as varied as the Black Forest, although as with any of Mother Nature's artwork, there's a fair number of highlights to watch out for. Standing beneath the 7-tiered Triberg Falls, meeting wild boar in Steinwasen Park and picnicking on the banks of the Danube are all worthy additions to a Black Forest bucket list. And should you fancy a little more in the way of seclusion, the area's dense fir trees, the inspiration for many a fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm, serve up just the right amount of intrigue with your outdoor time.
