You'll find us in the very north of the Black Forest, surrounded by Karlsruhe, Stuttgart and Freudenstadt.

Some say it is the gateway to the Black Forest. As soon as you walk through it, you are in the middle of nature.

You will discover typical Black Forest features such as mossy coniferous forests, healthy air and bubbling springs. But that's not all! Clear heights, extensive orchards and a variety of shrubs including species-rich wildlife characterize the landscape of the Hecken- und Schlehengäus. Hiking in this nature is excellent!

It is not for nothing that our region has been awarded the "Quality Region Hikeable Germany" certificate by the German Hiking Association. Over 1400 kilometers of uniformly marked and varied hiking trails await you here.
