Exercise in the open air

is the best rest

Our house is located in the nature reserve and biosphere reserve Southern Black Forest, framed by our large forest and meadow area (14.000 sqm). Behind the house is a wooded steep slope, which offers a breathtaking view of Freiburg, the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountains. In front of the house, the view extends to the Feldberg and, if the weather conditions allow, to the peaks of the Swiss Alps. In the subalpine biodiversity you will find e.g. arnica, St. John's wort, orchid, eyebright, blueberries, porcini mushrooms, toadstools...and much more.

Outdoor summer

Get outside.

Nature is our spa.

The forest clears the mind. The meadows are a feast for the eyes.

The rocks and mountains make you sweat. The brooks and lakes are your refreshment.

The hiking paths and trails are a safe system for your Black Forest adventure.

Whether hiking, biking, riding a scooter, swimming, or paragliding, the Black Forest offers a very well developed infrastructure and yet you will find solitude and seclusion in every corner.

Swimming in the forest

In our forest behind the house there are sunbeds that await you.

Listen to the forest, look at the trees and the sky and enjoy the birds singing.

The forest has a lot to say and not only cleans the air but also your mind.

You can get a pillow or blanket from us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hiking

Countless beautiful hiking trails of the Black Forest Association can be found online, in an app or on hiking maps that you can get from us. The App Komoot is a great resource for easily navigating through the Black Forest.

We are also happy to advise you on the most beautiful spots depending on the season and time of the year.

Biking

Pedaling, pedaling, sweating, then to the top to enjoy the view. As a reward, go straight downhill at a rapid pace.

Whether you take up the challenge on a mountain bike or racing bike, or you enjoy the advantages of an e-bike or the thrill of going downhill on bike or scooter - that's not important, what matters is that it rolls.

There are many racing bike mountain trails, mountain bike trails and a downhill slope with lift in Todtnau.

Winter impressions

Winter on Schauinsland is - usually- a white fairytale with magnificent views.Lorem ipsum & Dolor

There is nothing more beautiful than being outside, warmly dressed while enjoying the clear winter air and blue skies.  Crunching snow, snow-covered trees and silence in the snowy landscape is the magic of winter, which makes you calm and centred and invites you to listen - listen to your own visions.

In times without snow you can enjoy the numerous hiking trails and the clear air.
