Hotel Freiburg im Breisgau stimmungsvoll beleuchtet

Your winter holiday in the Black Forest

Experience an unparalleled winter holiday in the Black Forest. Whether it’s a walk through the snow-covered winter landscape, fabulous hours on the slopes or a trip to the cities nearby – our region has a lot offer, even on cold days. If you’re looking for relaxed winter wellness in your holiday, the Black Forest Lodge is the right place for you as well.

For our guests, we have put together a list of the most popular activities. If you instead need to unwind from everyday life, we can tell you where best to go. Families will find lots to do in the Upper Black Forest as well. For culture lovers, winter is the best season anyway.

Winter activities in the Black Forest

Hiking is best in spring or summer time? Nothing of the sort! Almost nothing compares to the white snow landscape of the Black Forest in winter – it’s just like a fairy tale! And what better way to admire this scenery than up close during a winter hiking tour? It gets a little bit more challenging if you put on snowshoes. If you can’t bring your own snowshoe hiking gear, there a lot of rental services in the Upper Black Forest. You can of course also spend your ski holiday with us – the ski area Altglashütten is located just opposite the Black Forest Lodge. The winter sports area Feldberg also offers plenty of opportunities for cross-country skiing, tobogganing or less common winter activities.

Winter wellness in the Upper Black Forest

Winter time also means wellness time. When it’s freezing outside, you can always retreat to the warmth of thermal water or boost your immune system with a sauna session. As a guest here at the Black Forest Lodge, feel free to use our sauna and the relaxation area – for perfect moments of tranquillity after a day spent out in the cold. 

For a day of unforgettable pampering, we can also recommend to you the following locations in the region: For example, how about the Day Spa of our partner hotel Schloss Reinach? The “Fitness & Vitality Oasis” at the hotel leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to the perfect wellness day – from sauna to beauty treatments to a heated outdoor pool.

A family winter holiday in the Black Forest

The Black Forest Lodge right beneath the Feldberg is the perfect place for making the whole family happy. Generous holiday apartments with up to 175 m² provide plenty of space even for large families. Thanks to a perfectly equipped kitchen, you are completely independent and flexible.

Exciting activities are only a stone’s throw away. In the winter sports area Feldberg – for example – there are slopes for young and old, for beginners and the more experienced. Or how about an exciting toboggan ride? You can rent a sledge at the slope.

For water rats, we recommend the Badeparadies Schwarzwald – featuring 23 high-tech water slides and the world’s biggest half-pipe made of stainless steel. In the meantime, the adults can have a good time of their own – in the steam bath or the theme sauna.
