Leisure tips

An excellent location!

Schluchsee lake. The largest lake in the Black Forest.
Schluchsee lake. A dreamy place. And yet with much to experience. How about going around the lake! On foot or by bicycle. Or would you rather cross it? Pedal boats await you. You can enjoy direct contact with water in the Aqua Fun adventure pool. In the winter, the Fischbach ski area and an extensive network of cross country skiing trails await active athletes. The highlight comes in the evening. Relax with the magnificent view over the lake. Is your digicam ready?

The hostel is located on the southwestern outskirts of the village, on a promontory (Amalienruhe) right on the lake.
