Culture and adventure
Of course, when most people imagine the Black Forest, it is a vision of trees, nature and relaxation that fills the mind. But the Black Forest has far more to offer than that! There are many opportunities for enjoying culture and relaxation throughout the year.
Our cities (Freiburg, Kalrsruhe, Pforzheim, Freudenstadt, Offenburg, Donaueschingen…) combine an atmosphere of hospitality with a rich history and modern interests. You will find cultural highlights throughout the entire region, ranging from the folk drama festival on Germany’s biggest open-air stage in Ötigheim to the Schwarzwald Musikfestival- the Black Forest music festival – with numerous acts in 25 villages and cities throughout the entire Black Forest. But even without special events, the innumerable museums, exhibitions, theatres and open-air theatres offer entertainment and pleasure to suit every taste. Discover our rich history and heritage on visits to castles, churches, monasteries and marvel at the handicrafts of past eras. Old or young – there is something for every generation in the cultural life of the Black Forest.
