Excursions in and around Baden-Baden
Baden-Baden is home to Germany’s largest municipal forest; panoramic trails, green hills, rugged crags, sunny glades and shady trees are just waiting for you: Nordic walking and gentle walks will awaken your inner strength. The almost jungle-like nearby Black Forest is substantially bigger and lends itself to hiking, climbing and mountain biking. You’d rather fly than walk? No problem: paraglide over the city from the nearby Merkur mountain or take a hot-air balloon from the Black Forest to the Vosges Mountains.
A few yards of wooden walkways and a couple of small climbs - that’s all it takes to reach the famous Geroldsau waterfall. It truly is a gift of nature. What with the thunderous waterfall plunging into the turquoise pond, the gentle ripples lapping against the rocks and the infatuating scent in the cool, refreshing air of the blossoming rhododendrons.Details
