Upon arrival in Titisee, check into your picturesque hotel. The remainder of the day is free to utilize the pool, sauna, or hike to the observation deck of the 19th-century Hochfirst Tower. You can also take advantage of your 48 hour Black Forest Card (SchwarzwaldCard), which offers free or reduced admission, free rides and further advantages at more than 140 restaurants and attractions in the entire holiday region. The card is valid on three days of your choice. You simply show your card at the participating program partner to receive the benefits.
After breakfast, you can choose one of two private hiking tours. Both start at 10am and your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby.
The first option is the "Private Idyllic Hike around Beautiful Titisee", with a 2 hour duration. The hike is deemed appropriate for the casual walker. Without much slope, you'll discover the diversity of the Black Forest and enjoy fantastic views of the lake. Walking along the lake road, enjoy the first views of the lake with the Feldberg Mountain in the background. You'll walk directly along the lake shore, from where you can observe the boats on the lake. On your way back you'll take a short coffee or tea break at the Alemannenhof. The perfect opportunity to sample the famous Black Forest Cake (Schwarzwälderkirschtorte), before heading back to the hotel.
The tour is approximately 4 miles with not much of an incline, but please make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes.
The second option is the "Private Circular Walk from Titisee to Hinterzarten and Return". It's a little more challenging and 3 hours in length. You'll start by taking the lake promenade passing by the public beaches along the lake side. You'll follow small paths and pass the impressive ski jumping station. From Hinterzarten you can either take a train back to Titisee or walk back though Hinterzarten and Hochmoor to Lafettenhof and further on. On the return, you will pass by several picturesque typical farm houses of the Black Forest region. This hike is approximately 8 miles with a rise of about 500 feet.
Note: In the case of both walks, meals and entrance fees are not included.
Note: Please make sure you wear good shoes and appropriate clothing.
Remainder of the day is free for relaxing or using the hotel facilities. Dinner on your own this evening.
