While it may be a temptation to just chill out when holidaying in Hinterzarten, keep in mind that Black Forest 's treasure-trove of scenic delights lie just beyond your doorstep. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Sankt Georgen im Schwarzwald, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southwest, and Emmendingen 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast.
Around 14 miles (23 kilometers) to the northwest of Hinterzarten is Freiburg, an important regional center where you'll find New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus), Freiburg Concert Hall and Black Forest (Schwarzwald). Schwabentor Gate, Martinstor Gate and Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus) are a number of other interesting attractions worth investigating for those who have time left.
Black Forest is a great destination for travelers with a thing for open-air museums, gardens and farms. If you want to stay indoors, you can't better Black Forest 's art galleries, art museums and history museums. These are good places to learn a little about the local culture and pick up a gift or two.
Why not take advantage of a good local guide and book a tour? Guided nature walks, winery tours and city walking tours are popular here. De-stress the way the locals do in this area. Try cycling and wildlife watching while you are here.
At the end of your time in Hinterzarten, use your last euros on last minute keepsakes and bid a fond Tschüss (farewell).
