Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So be sure to visit Black Forest 's other attractions. You'll find Braunlingen, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southwest, and Kirchzarten 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast.
About 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest of Hoechenschwand is Freiburg, an important regional city and the home of Schlossberg, Freiburg Concert Hall and Freiburg Main Cathedral (Freiburg Munster). Freiburg Theater, Breisacher Gate and Goethe Institute are just a few of the many other interesting visitor attractions that await.
Experience moments of quiet contemplation in Black Forest 's churches. This area is known for its fine ruins; these are fascinating portals into the region's colorful history.
Try out some of this region's great winter attractions. Join the locals and go cross-country skiing here. Snow shoeing is also popular. Don't forget to check out Black Forest 's trademark waterways. Boating and swimming are both most popular ways to get wet here.
You'll be sad to say "Tschüss" (farewell) to this magnetic area.
