When to Go
The Black Forest is one of the most visited mountain regions in Europe and despite its name, one of the sunniest places in Germany. Be sure to make reservations well in advance for spas and hotels, especially from June to August. The area around Titisee is particularly crowded then. In early fall and late spring, when the weather turns more temperate, the Black Forest is less crowded, but just as beautiful. Some hotels in small towns close for a month or so in winter so be sure to check ahead.
