Great views and relatively easy hike

I don't remember which loop we took but it was about a 3 hour hike. Some of it was fairly steep but... read more

Nice walk and a lot to see. Our teenage sins loved it. The zigzag uphill just after the giant clock is pretty heavy.

I had read the publicity that the part of this railway line from Hornberg, through Triberg and on to St Georgen was a most spectacular rail journey and worth taking, even if there is no "special" train and you must ride on the normal inter-city train. Undoubtedly one must admire the skill of the engineers who built the line and the tunnels but, really, there are few "spectacular" parts and there are a lot of tunnels! The views are trees, valleys and more trees - pleasant enough but it does not warrant the publicity description - I have been on better! The return fare cost was 9€ per person.
One tip - don't bother with a look around St Georgen as there is nothing there of note on an autumnal day in October. We were hard pushed to occupy one hour, climbing up to the town and then strolling around a non-descript town. Save yourself this disappointment and get off the train, walk quickly to the next platform and immediately take the return train back - the return train leaves just 2 mins after the arrival of the train from Hornberg/Triberg.

We were not alone is this assessment - other tourists from our outbound train did the same as us and wished they had jumped on the return train immediately, too!!

The black forest railway system is a nice way to view the area. This area is more untouched than any I experienced in the area. Bring a jacket.
