Freiamt in the Black Forest

an all year hiking paradise

140 km of signposted hiking and walking trails around Freiamt alone take you past traditional mountain farmhouses, lush meadows, clear streams and fantastic viewpoints. There are short circular routes right next to the Ludinmühle – even these gentle trails will provide you with stunning views. More extended routes and panoramic hikes offer an abundance of wonderful hiking at all times of year.

Experience nature reawakening in spring, meadow flowers burgeoning in summer and the trees’ colourful clothing in autumn. In winter the landscape is covered in a soft white – even at this time, Freiamt is extraordinarily lovely for hiking.
