Titisee lake

This beautiful lake is one of the best-known attractions in the Black Forest. Surrounded by forest and low mountains, it is an idyllic place to relax in a delightful, natural setting.

The largest natural lake in the Black Forest, Titisee stretches for some 2 km (over 1 mile). It is a popular resort destination, with plenty of outdoor activities. Follow the 5-mile/8-km trail round the lake: On the east side, the trail follows the water; on the west side, it goes up the Hochfirst Mountain, giving splendid views over the valley. Or get out on to the water: take a cruise on the lake, go windsurfing or sailing, or just rent a rowing boat and do your own thing. Then relax in a typical beer garden.
