Uphill, downhill with fantastic views over the Black Forest.
Try a typical snack in Gasthaus Heiligenbrunn!
Our panoramic tour starts at the parking lot for hikers located at the church in Breitnaus’s idyllic village center. The tour takes us past the inn Gasthaus Kreuz and continues to Wirbstein. We can visit the farm shop Konradhof along the way. Then it’s slightly uphill to Gasthaus Löwen, where we cross the street and follow the guidepost in the direction of Tiefen. Once we reach the part of town called Tiefen, we walk towards Heiligenbrunnen. After reaching Gasthaus Heiligenbrunnen, we can take a small break and enjoy some culinary treats. The paths leads us further to Fürsatzhöhe. Here we take the path that leads to Thurner and has the Weißtannenhöhe, the highest point of our hike, as its destination. The bench that soon comes into our view offers marvelous views of the Feldberg, Schauinsland, and Breitnau. We soon reach the highlight of our tour: the “country seat” [Landsitz] at Fahrenberger Höhe. The view there is stunning and we can take it in while sitting on a four meter long bench shaped like a wave. After our well-deserved break, we continue our hike via Ankenbühl to the waypoint Ramshalde beside the road. We continue in the direction of Schanz Waldeck, across lush meadows and fields, until we reach the waypoint Oberer Fahrenberg. Once there, we are rewarded with beautiful views of St. Märgen and St. Peter to the north as well as Feldberg to the southwest. If desired, a shortcut can be taken via Hugenweiher and Rossberg to get to Breitnau. Otherwise, we will follow the guidepost to Schanzenhäusle. At the hostel Naturfreundehaus, we have another opportunity to stop for a bite to eat before we embark on the descent to Breitnau via Schanz Waldeck.
We recommend sturdy shoes!
