Hiking in the Black Forest

I had Monday off work, so we went hiking in the Black Forest (southern Germany) the last 3 days. The first day we started hiking around Blumberg (I managed to twist my knee after a few km, didn’t really make things easier), then we took a steam locomotive (Sauschwänzlebahn) up the hill and hiked back to the car. Afterwards we drove up to Titisee where we booked a hotel for 2 nights.

The next day we drove over to the Wutachschlucht and hiked a very nice trail. Since the weather was good and it was a Sunday there were a decent amount of people hiking. In the late afternoon we finally arrived at our destination, sat down and rested our feet before we took a bus back to where we parked the car.

On the last day we were a bit tired for hiking the last 2 days and the weather was getting  a bit rainy, so we decided to take the scenic route home, and stop by waterfalls and ruins on the way.

Hiking

We went hiking yesterday, west of Bad Bergzabern. We had a look at “Puhlstein”. You have a fantastic lookout from one end, and a long row of rock formations protrude from the top of the hill. There were a couple castle ruins surrounding the hill, so the view was nice too.

We saw a family climbing (it was still sunny and warm, but on the shadow side of the hill it was a bit windy and cold). And we saw some interresting routes in the rocks. We also found a geocache (I had loaded all nearby gecaches into my gps before we left), so that rouded up a nice day outdoors.
