Excursion destinations in the Black Forest

mountains and lakes

Lakes, waterfalls, swimming pools, mountain peaks, alpine huts... there are plenty of them in the Southern Black Forest. Of course you have to see them during a visit to our wellness hotel in the Southern Black Forest! We have put together a list of some of the most important and beautiful ones for you here.




Lake Titisee is located about 20 km from the Grüner Baum and is a popular destination for strolling, swimming and boating or pedal boating. The Titisee owes its formation to the Feldberg glacier. Nestled in the Feldberg scenery, it is an absolute jewel of the Black Forest. On the north shore is the spa town of Titisee-Neustadt with the famous Hochfirst ski jump. The surrounding Black Forest towns of Hinterzarten, Breitnau, Saig and Lenzkirch are interesting to discover.


The big brother of the Titisee, the "Schluchsee", is also about 20 km away from the Grüner Baum. Here, water sports in all facets, such as wind surfing, fishing, sailing or diving are the order of the day. It is the largest lake in the Black Forest.

Todtnauer Wasserfall

The Todtnau waterfall is only 5 km away and, at 97 metres, the highest natural waterfall in Germany. Hike directly from the hotel via the Todtnauberger Hochtal to the waterfall or via the Wasserfallsteig to the Fahler waterfall.

Swimming pools

Eugen-Keidel-Thermalbad in Freiburg 

Visit the Keidel thermal baths on the outskirts of Freiburg and leave the grey everyday life behind you. With around 6000m² of wellness space and a restaurant, the Keidel offers optimal conditions to relax and keep fit.
