The Black Forest adventure trails (Erlebnispfade) are particularly popular with families:
Rollberg forest experience path & forest fitness trail
The Rollberg forest experience path can be reached by car in 10 minutes. Adventurers and nature‑lovers both young and old can explore the forest ecosystem along the 2.5 km (largely pushchair‑friendly) forest experience path and let off steam at the forest playground or enjoy the barbecue area at the Rollberghütte hut. From the indigenous trees and shrubs to the geology to the forest inhabitants, the flora and fauna of the southern Black Forest is all playfully explained. And the integrated forest fitness trail challenges ambitious athletes to train their strength, stamina and coordination (total length 4.5 km).
We are happy to collect you from the station in Emmendingen or Freiburg (for stays of less than two nights we charge 15 € per journey for Emmendingen and 20 € per journey for Freiburg).
