The historical Freiburg is also often called the capital of the Black Forest. Freiburg is a real student city, which makes it a vibrant city. The Altstadt – the old city centre – is a pedestrian zone, but from Reisemobilplatz Freiburg you can easily walk to the centre, so that’s no problem at all! Just outside the city centre you can find the Schlossberg. You can reach the mountain by cable car of via one of two hiking trails. From here you have a beautiful view over the city and surrounding hills!

Welcome to the highest point of the Black Forest! When the weather is clear, you even seem to be able to see the Alps from here. In winter, this is a well-known winter sports area, but in summer you can call it a true hiking or cycling paradise. So, go out here for a nice walking- or cycling trip and then relax with a delicious German beer in your hand.

For the Feldberg you can best spend the night in nearby Titisee or at Wohnmobil Stellplatz Todtnau.


Titisee is a moment of relaxation after the activities on the Feldberg. First of all, you can find lake Titisee here, a large lake where you can swim of take part in water sports. The village is renowned for its cuckoo clocks, from which you will also encounter the most unusual creations in the rest of the Black Forest! For the enthusiasts there is also the Badeparadies Schwarzwald, a large swimming paradise where you can both enjoy recreational swimming and go to the sauna. If you are in Titisee for relaxation, don’t forget to try a piece of real Black Forest Cherry Cake, a delicious cherry pie soaked in cherry water!
