... is in the heart of the Upper Black Forest. The community with its population of
roughly 5000 has for many years carried the award "heilklimatischer Kurort" ("Climatic health resort"),
and is surrounded by the most well-known attractions of the Black Forest.
The charming landscape, situated between the Schluchsee lake and the 1,100 metre Pflumberg
mountain to the south, the Windgfällweiher lake and the Feldberg mountain (1,493 metres)
to the west, and the Titisee lake as well as the 1192 metre high Hochfirst mountain to the
north, is characterised by two beautiful valleys, the Haslachtal and the Urseetal. The Haslach
and the Gutach rivers join at the eastern limit of the parish to form the Wutach. The Urseetal
and the Wutachschlucht Gorge are well-known nature reserves with rare flora.
Thanks to the well-developed public transport network, you can reach almost all destinations
quickly and without the need to use your own car. The hiking paths in the area have also been
newly signposted by the Black Forest Society, making your hiking tours that much easier.
