Lakes & bathing lakes





This is how you imagine the typical Upper Black Forest, and this is how the many tourists from home and abroad imagine the Black Forest - there is something for everyone. Boat trips, souvenirs, cuckoo clock or Black Forest ham, hikers and Nordic walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers as well as swimmers, all find an extensive destination. Of course, an excursion on a quad bike, tractor fun or climbing in the Action Forest are not to be missed.





The largest lake in the Black Forest is one of the cleanest bathing lakes in Germany, and also the undisputed aquatic sports centre of the Black Forest. The Schluchsee used to be a glacial lake. It was dammed up about 80 years ago and became the highest dam in Germany. The former village got covered by the waves. The lake has developed into a bathing and water sports centre in the southern Black Forest. Anglers, divers, surfers and sailors also benefit from this, as they find first-class sports facilities at Schluchsee. In summer visitors enjoy the long beaches.

The Aqua Fun leisure pool is a meeting place for the younger generation. The heated outdoor pool, located directly on the lake, offers also a giant slide of 105 metres in length, a wild water canal, and an adventure playground for children.
