Beautiful Titisee, carved by a glacier in the last Ice Age, is the most scenic lake in the Black Forest. The heavily wooded landscape is ideal for long bike tours, which can be organized through the Titisee tourist office. The lake measures 2½ km (1½ miles) long and is invariably crowded in summer, but it's a refreshing place to swim as it is closed to motorboats. A public beach with outdoor pool ensures everyone has lake access. On rainy days, head to the indoor water park on the outskirts of town to stay refreshed. Stop by one of the many lakeside cafés to enjoy some of the region's best Black Forest cherry cake with an unparalleled waterside view. Paddleboats and stand-up paddleboards can be rented at several points along the shore.
