Getting There & Away

The Schwarzwaldhochstrasse shadows the B500 from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt. Traffic tends to be sparse, with the most distracting thing being the staggering views on every hairpin bend. Check road conditions in winter, when you'll need to bring along winter tyres and snow chains just in case. The website www.schwarzwaldhochstrasse.de has a panoramic map marking major highlights on the route.

In Baden-Baden, you can hook up with the A5 motorway, which runs north to Frankfurt and south all the way to the Swiss border.

Baden-Baden and Freudenstadt both have train stations, but from here on you'll need your own set of wheels to explore this scenic route.
