The black forest (in German – Schwarzwald) is one of the most popular, beautiful and magical tourist destinations in Europe. It is hard to find another place that ignites the imagination like this, with the picturesque towns and villages, the many legends woven around it, the mesmerizing views and the charming atmosphere. It is no wonder, then, that the Black Forest is a center of attraction for tourists (and especially families) from all over the world, and from Israel in particular.
The forest itself is in the southwestern tip of Germany, bordering Switzerland and France. Its location makes it ideal for a proper European vacation, since you can also reach neighboring countries from it. In addition, the great diversity of the cities, towns and villages in the region, allows every type of traveler to find what they like and create the trip they dreamed of. Whether you are a die-hard hiker or an unrestrained spa lover, whether a lake in the forest does it for you or whether you prefer a good beer at a party, among the many options offered by the Black Forest you will find exactly what you are looking for.
The fact that the Black Forest area is mainly a holiday center for families, makes the peaks in the tourist season there very predictable. Similar to most tourist destinations in Europe, and in the Black Forest this is especially true, August is the hottest month of the year in the Black Forest, literally. Therefore, you can expect hotel prices to rise significantly in August, certainly compared to the winter months, when the number of tourists is at a low. Keep in mind that the month of May is also similar to August in terms of the number of tourists (and in terms of costs accordingly).
If you are planning to come to the Black Forest in the summer, the warm recommendation is to prepare things as much as possible in advance. Airline tickets, booking hotels or campsites, booking attractions as much as possible, car rental and all. You will find that it can save you a lot of money.
Those who have the opportunity to come in the spring or autumn months, will find that the number of tourists is lower than in the summer, while the temperatures are definitely tolerable and the cold can be overcome with appropriate clothing. The decrease in the number of tourists leads to a corresponding decrease in the costs of tourist services, which can save you a lot of money (certainly if you are traveling in an extended group that includes children).
And finally, the months in which the Black Forest receives the lowest number of tourists are the winter months (November to March, with an increase in late December and early January). In these months, about sixty percent of the number of tourists who are in the summer are in the Black Forest, and this gap is very noticeable. During this period, the many hotels in the area compete for every tourist, which leads to a significant drop in prices. However, keep in mind that it may not be easy for you to travel in the area during these months with children, due to the challenging weather.
When it comes to choosing a place to stay, it is important to remember that the Black Forest is characterized by relatively high prices, and that the choice of the city or village in which you will sleep depends more on the nature of the vacation you want for yourself, and less on the budget you have. Of course there is a gap between the towns, but due to their different nature and due to the distance between each one, the nature of the trip is a much more significant parameter here. Here we give examples of three central places, but it is important to remember that this is a vast geographical area, with dozens of villages, towns and cities where you will find hundreds and thousands of hotels and guesthouses.
Frieburg is the largest city in the Black Forest region, which is why it is sometimes called “the gateway to the Black Forest”. It is right at the southwestern edge of Germany and the forest, so it is quite close to the borders with Switzerland and France. It is a university city, with its university being one of the oldest in Germany. That’s why it’s the perfect place for those who want to experience Germany’s nightlife, apart from being surrounded by the Black Forest and the history of the city. In addition, you will find here many attractions and countless points of interest, so that you will not be bored during the day, until you get to the parties of the evening. In Freiburg there is a selection of accommodation solutions, including fancy hotels, economical backpacker hostels as well as apartments and B&Bs and even B&Bs that can be suitable for families with children.
Baden-Baden is one of the most famous towns in the Black Forest region, and is particularly known for its spa scene. It was established in the 19th century in the verdant hills of the northern Black Forest, and its classical architecture built during the “Belle Époque” period is evident in every corner. This is the perfect place for those who want to pamper his or her body in a quality spa, when in the evenings you will find here a particularly lively cultural scene. Museums, galleries, events galore and more, you can find all these in this charming town, which has the aroma of ancient times. Families with children will be able to find hotels or B&Bs or apartments, as an accommodation solution for several days, which provides all the facilities needed for a pleasant family vacation.
And finally, those who want to experience the local culture of the forest and understand why this area has produced so many legends and folk tales, should look for a place to stay in one of the villages located in the heart of the forest. An example of such a village is Kinzing, and the Gutach valley that surrounds it. When you arrive you will find a very traditional German village, and an area where many of the traditions of the people of the Black Forest began. The forest is present here in every corner, and the sleepy atmosphere of the town will make you wonder if you have jumped to visit another world. Spend your vacation in a country lodge and stop to visit a local brewery, to feel that you have really entered the atmosphere.
Many Israelis, especially families with children, prefer a “star trip” style vacation. This means staying overnight in one place (a central and large town, relatively close to the black destination) and from there traveling every day to another place, near or far. This way there is no need to repack the “paklaot” and look for a comfortable, accessible and cheap accommodation solution.
