The biggest lake and not just for water sports

Lake Schluchsee, the biggest lake in the fairytale Black Forest, offers an outstanding range of water sports. The water is great for everything you could possibly want to do: swimming, windsurfing, sailing or angling don't come any better than this. Families enjoy the rowing boats, pedalos and motor boats. In the summer, steamers offer trips between villages along the bank. But being in or on the water itself isn't the only option: there are also wonderful footpaths around the lake and fabulous cycle trails that are well worth exploring.

Lake Mummelsee: a mysterious beauty

The largest natural lake in the Black Forest, Lake Titisee is one of Europe's finest lakes. The water is a good place from which to discover the legendary forests - there are four ships to choose from and numerous boats. Thanks to the lake's crystal-clear water, the health resort of Titisee-Neustadt has become a popular centre for hydrotherapy. Appropriately for the Black Forest, Lake Mummelsee seems to be under a spell. Its name comes from Mummel, the dialect word for water lily. Pedalo tours, an art trail with works by modern artists and a circular footpath to the summit of the Hornisgrinde all add to the attractiveness of this lake.
