Leisure tips

An excellent location!

Lake Titisee - the most beautiful lake in the Black Forest. Titisee - a mountain resort and district of Titisee-Neustadt. The village is 860 m high on the northern shore, surrounded by a beautiful hiking region. How about a walk along the shore? Or a hike in the mountains? Enough for today? The beach is only minutes away.

Titisee also offers a variety of sports in the winter, too: cross-country skiing trails pass right by the hostel. If you want to go alpine skiing, the ski buses will take you to Feldberg mountain just 8 km away or to the ski lifts in Hinterzarten. Want to skate? Or go sledging? Make way - here we come!

Our hostel is on the "Bruderhalde", southwest of the Titisee district, about 50 m above the eponymous lake in a nature reserve.
