Staying in only one place, no matter how popular, can only ever give you a narrow glimpse into the broader personality of a region. So try to set aside some time to enjoy Black Forest 's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Some interesting places within a relatively short distance of Grafenhausen are Hasel, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast, and Voehrenbach, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south.
Freiburg is around 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Grafenhausen. This center contains a number of interesting tourist attractions, including University of Freiburg, New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) and Freiburg Main Cathedral (Freiburg Munster). If you're looking for more, why not stop by Schwabentor Gate, Schlossberg and Muensterplatz before you return to Grafenhausen.
If you ask a local what to see around Grafenhausen, you'll most likely be directed to the region's fascinating open-air museums, open-air exhibits and farms. To learn about the local culture, head straight to Black Forest 's theaters, nature museums and history museums.
If the weather is fine while here, try some of the local water activities. Swimming and boating are both popular here. Traveling to new spots can bring out the inner-daredevil in people. If you are up for an adventure, try paragliding.
When it is time to leave Grafenhausen, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your euros on last-minute souvenirs, and bid Tschüss (farewell) to this wonderful spot.
