Vacationing in just one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the wider cultural and natural fabric of a region. So be sure to explore Black Forest 's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Ehrenkirchen, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast, and Schramberg, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southwest of Bleibach are worth a visit too.
Organise your transportation and head out to Freiburg, a transport and retail hub for the area, 12 miles (19 kilometers) away from Bleibach. This bigger city offers a range of visitor attractions, such as Muensterplatz, Schwabentor Gate and Schlossberg. Black Forest (Schwarzwald), Freiburg Theater and Freiburg Main Cathedral (Freiburg Munster) are good places to visit.
If you want to stay indoors, it's hard to go past Black Forest 's excellent art museums, history museums and art galleries. These are great spots to soak up some of the region's culture and perhaps find a special gift or two. Spirituality is an important facet of every region's DNA, so be sure set aside some time to visit Black Forest 's churches and other religious sites.
Take your own equipment or rent it on the spot, and get out onto the water. Swimming is one great activity. Another option is boating. Why don't you relax and enjoy during fun activities such as bird watching or wildlife watching. Both are popular with both tourists and locals alike.
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when you're ready to leave Black Forest, you'll be leaving with special memories and keepsakes to take home.
