Black Forest base 7-10 days - public transport

Jump to last reply

I'm looking to be in the Black Forest 28 Sep to around 4/5 Oct, or a bit longer if I end up enjoying it a lot more.

I am trying to figure out where to base myself that is accessible to public transport and do some day hikes.

Through reading online, it seems Gengenbach is a popular recommendation...I understand it is on the KONUS area. And I can do day trips to some places.

Since I mainly am in the area to do day hikes (moderate), public transport ease accessibility and self navigating hiking trails access nearby are the main factors.

Your thoughts on Gengenbach or other towns suggestions would be much appreciated. And anything else I might need to consider or be aware of. (I don't know German...)

Travelling solo, early 30s.

Thanks!
