The Titisee is one of the most popular excursion destinations in the Black Forest. The idyllically situated lake is 2 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide with an average depth of 20 meters. The lake was created in the last Ice Age. A glacier extended from Feldberg as far as today’s Titisee 10,000 years ago. The basin created by the glacier forms the Titisee today. The lake is fed by the Seebach, which has its source on the Feldberg and flows into Titisee from the Feldsee. Start your Titisee scouting expedition with a ride on the Zäpfle-Bähnle trackless train and take in the views of the countryside during the trip along the lake and in the romantic side valleys. The trip leads past typical Black Forest farmhouses, whereby the train driver will explain the special features of the environment to you. After that, a boat tour on the Titisee – by ship, electric boat or paddle boat – attracts visitors. Framed by old fir trees, here you can drift on the water and really breathe freely. Purchasing a keepsake on the “souvenir mile” which leads to the lake is an absolute must for any vacationer in the Black Forest – cuckoo clocks, Black Forest ham, “Black Forest Girl” dolls, wood carvings and much more await you! It is a bit quieter at Titisee in the winter, because the lake takes a long time until it freezes and is opened up for walking, ice stock sport and ice-skating. The reasons for this are the constant winds which continually keep the surface of the lake in motion. The covering of ice is only released for people to have fun once the ice is at least 16 centimeters thick. Horse-drawn sleigh rides around the Titisee through the snow-covered winter landscape of the High Black Forest are also popular. The different routes can be individually arranged with the driver. You should take a tour to the Hochfirstschanze, Germany’s largest natural hill for ski jumpers. Here you can experience exciting ski jumping competitions in the winter. In contrast, the ski jumping hill provides a fantastic backdrop for open-air events in the summer.
