The Schwarzwald-Hochstraße (The Black Forest Highroad) or the German Clock Road takes you through the most beautiful parts of the Balck Forest. One of the most beautiful areas is the Glotter valley and it was here that the famous German tv series the „Black Forest Clinic“ was filmed amongst pine forests, vineyards and typical Black Forest farms. Many hotels are to be found on the wooded shores of the Titisee lake. The German Clock Museum is in Furtwangen and traces the long history of this traditional industry. Badenweiler was known as a spa by the Romans and the „Cassiopeia-Therme” allows the present day guest to relax and benefit from the therapeutic waters. The Feldberg is the highest mountain and a trip to the top is well worth the effort for the view and to visit the traditional hotel „Feldberger Hof” where winter sports in the Black Foest first started in the 19th Century.
