In winter the Black Forest area also has a lot to offer: snowshoe hiking, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing . Husky tours are one of our very special highlights. Do not miss the unforgettable feeling of a husky sled ride through snow-covered woods. Feel free to join a workshop to learn how to drive a husky sled or simply enjoy a ride on the sled, which is a must for dog lovers.
Alpine skiing is possible at Bad Herrenalb – Gaistal/Talwiese ski resort, at Bad Herrenalb – Neusatz ski lift and Dobel ski lift . The longest piste is about 900 m and starts at Mt. Mehliskopf at an altitude of 1000 m, the ski area is located directly at the Black Forest Panorama Road. At Talwiese in the Upper Gais Valley you find a 2-km-long cross-country ski run offering access to the Northern Black Forest cross-country ski trail network. In the neighbouring Kaltenbronn village there are also the 16-km-long Kaltenbronn-Grünhütte cross country ski run and the 21,5-km-long Kaltenbach alpine cross country skiing trail.
Bad Herrenalb is located between Schwaben and Baden, so the regional food is a fine fusion of these two traditional kitchens. Besides the great number of restaurants, inns and coffee-houses, a visit of the spa hotel park restaurant is very recommended. If you love entertained dining, this is the place to be. “The night of horrors” offers exquisite 4-course dinners intermixed with a hilarious murder mystery show leading you to an old honourable manor house in Scotland.
Many different types of accommodations such as hotels, B&Bs and camping sites offer you a very comfortable and pleasant stay in Bad Herrenalb.
