Quiet country lanes; unspoiled natural beauty; medieval towns; gentle terrain. If all that appeals, plan to pedal the Southern Black Forest Cycle Route (Südschwarzwald Radweg). The 4* rating for this circular tour reflects the variety offered by its 270 km / 170 miles. As ever, the bike path is clearly signposted, as it passes through the farms, woodlands and hills of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park, Germany's largest. A bonus is popping in and out of France and Switzerland! Start in Hinterzarten and head for beautiful Titisee Lake and the impressive Wutach Gorge. Stop at farmer’s markets and traditional Black Forest farmhouses to sample seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables, honey, loaves of bread from wood-fired ovens, sausages and cheese. Or ride the historic Wutach Valley Railroad, nicknamed the Sauschwänzle Railroad, because it twists and turns like a pig’s tail! As you cycle along the River Rhine, cross over to the Swiss city of Basel. Back in Germany, the route cuts through the Markgräflerland vineyards, dotted with spa resorts, on its way to Freiburg, one of Europe’s greenest and most cycle-friendly cities. In Himmelreich, put your bike on a train and enjoy the scenic run through the wild and romantic Höllental valley (Hell's Valley!), back up to Hinterzarten and the start of the tour. Start & finish: Hinterzarten, 2 hours southwest of Stuttgart
