    Day 49 - The Black Forest

    September 21, 2020 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Woke up starving, so did my best to rectify the situation at breakfast. We had a plate of meat & cheese, several rolls mainly with delicious pâté & followed it with fruit. After checking out, we drove into Freiburg im Breisgau & parked up in an underground car park. We then commenced a mad dash around the city centre must-sees.

    First was Martin’s Gate, an iconic medieval gate tower with a clock (and a McDonalds). After a photo from either side, we galloped to the other side of town to Freiburger Munster, a grand cathedral with a unique Gothic tower. Freiburger Munster was started to be built in 1200 in a romanesque style, but construction continued in 1230 in a Gothic style, which accounts for the architecture.

    Around the outside of the cathedral were market stalls preventing me getting a decent photo of it in it’s entirety. We entered & were able to wander around admiring the ornate interior, but they wanted to charge us to tour the choir seats & alter. Surely god’s houses should be free. Jesus would be turning in his grave if he only knew!

    We continued to wander around the town getting our money’s worth of the car park, then with minutes to spare we returned to our car & paid for just one hour. Next stop was The Schlossbergturm which was a 10 minute drive up a steep wooded hill. We abandoned our car at the top end of a Funicular railway, then climbed up on foot a further half a mile to the Schlossbergturm.

    The Schlossbergturm or Castle Hill Tower is a 35 m high observation tower on Castle Hill Schlossberg on the edge of the historic Altstadt of Freiburg im Breisgau. It has 153 steps, its top is located 463 m above sea level and thus 185 m above the average altitude of the city (278 m). The tower which was built in 2002 stands out for its unusual design consisting of twisted tree trunks around a staircase made of steel. It has three platforms on the top is reached by a small spiral staircase.

    Despite being scared of heights, I decided to climb the Schlossbergturm, whilst Jackie couldn’t be bothered or so she said. Throughout the climb I could see the floor shrinking below me & I was clinging on for dear life. By the time I reached the top I was walking like Mrs Overall. The top of the tower gives stunning views of the town & surrounding countryside below apparently. I hung my camera over the railing & clicked away. I was aware I was making a spectacle of myself because people were looking at me, so I creeped back down the spiral staircase to the bottom. Apparently, Jackie didn’t see me at the top waving to her!

    Returning to the car, we were relieved to see that it had been clamped or towed. We then set the SatNav for Lake Titisee (I’m not making it up!) which was about 20 miles away. We parked up & followed the elderly crowds into Titisee, which is THE home of cuckoo clock making. We were bombarded with cuckoo shops & other tourist tat shops. Jacqueline couldn’t resist looking & soon established that there were some bargains to be had.

    I dragged her away to the glacier lake, which didn’t look as spectacular as others we had seen, but it was fighting against black clouds looming overhead. At 12.55pm, we located the world’s largest cuckoo clock (it wasn’t) & waited for it’s 1.00pm performance, which turned out to be a total anticlimax.

    We consoled ourselves with a beer in the sun, secured a bed for the night, then we had a Bratwurst in a bun for lunch. Jackie apparently was in the mood for shopping & she bought some mementos/alcohol. If that wasn’t enough, we (she) then went clothes shopping. Despite us nearly buying a pair of boots & a German fighter pilot leather jacket, we eventually walked away with 2 scarfs & a felt hat, all for Jackie.

    We decided to head straight to our hotel to plan our final days of the trip on our room balcony. We bought a couple of bottles of German white wine & checked ourselves into our ski chalet hotel in Schonwald im Schwarzwald, just 4 miles south of Triberg. In front of our balcony are 2 huge fir trees that blocked out our view of anything else, but were the home for 2 red squirrels.

    On our balcony we drank our two bottles of too sweet wine, then headed downtown for something to eat. In the whole town, there was just one restaurant open, Pizzeria Holzfällerstube, which was chock a block. We waited until a table became available with a couple of large beers.

    I stupidly ordered the house pizza & Jackie ordered a chilli pasta. When it eventually arrived Jackie’s pasta was not a patch on what she can make & my pizza was so overloaded that it became soggy. We ate about a half of our respective disappointing meals then ordered.the bill. It was at this point that we were informed that we had to pay the bill of €30 by cash.

    We only had a €10 note, so I went off in search of the only ATM in town. Eventually I found it, but it didn’t like our Caxton card, so that was that. I returned to the restaurant with the news & after much umming & aahing the waiter told us we could bring them the cash tomorrow. Of course we will.

    We celebrated our good fortune, sorry embarrassing incident, with a nightcap of cherry schnapps.

    Tag 3 // Now can come what wants

    September 5, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    So würde es Uschi Disl (ehemalige Biathletin) wohl ausdrücken. (Edit 06.09: Zitat korrigiert, siehe Titel des Posts) Nachdem wir gestern unseren Streckentritt getestet haben konnten wir heute unsere Kletterfähigkeiten beweisen.
    Phasenweise leider sogar zu Fuss, da durch eine den Karten nicht bekannte Umleitung der Weg so eng wurde, dass er zumindest für uns nicht mehr fahrbar war.
    Mit den Abschnitten die wir fahren konnten sind wir heute auf 70km bei 1.600 HM gekommen. Die Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit wird an der Stelle bewusst nicht genannt...
    Für die teils zähen Meter wurden wir mit einer schönen Abfahrt mit Blick auf den Schluchsee belohnt den wir dann zur Hälfte umrundet haben. Vorbei an der Rothaus Brauerei ging es dann noch die letzten Meter ins Etappenziel. Unterkunft bezogen haben wir auf einem Ferien Bauernhof auf dem ich als Kind oft (jährlich) den Urlaub verbracht habe und ich später sogar zum "Ferienjob" war. Weiterhin also eher familiäre Unterkunft als klassisches Hotel.
    Wetter technisch sah es heute schon anders aus als die letzten Tage. Die Sonne kam erst am späten Nachmittag etwas raus und durch den Wind war es phasenweise schon sehr frisch. In den Alpen schneit es bereits und die Schneefallgrenze soll am Wochenende bis auf 1500m fallen. Uns droht also eine weiße Alpen Überquerung.
    Das lassen wir aber erstmal unser Problem von übermorgen sein. Für morgen steht die Route und laut Wetterbericht soll es trocken bleiben.

    Die Kletterstrapazen werden durch herrliche Blicke auf die Landschaft belohnt. Hoffe, ihr habt noch Reserven. Die richtigen Berge kommen noch. Aber es lohnt sich. Weiterhin alles Gute!

    Gennem Tyskland til Schwarzwald

    August 26, 2021 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Det er virkelig en fin rute, vi har kørt i dag, synes vi. De sidste mange år, har vi siddet meget i kø på motorveje ned gennem Tyskland, både med autocamper og med lille bil. I år har vi i stedet kørt på mindre motorveje og motortrafikveje, men med nærmest ingen trafik og ikke væsentlig længere. Den tid vi plejer at holde stille i en kø, har vi i stedet brugt på strækninger gennem landsbyer, og på den måde set meget mere! En del af ruten gik gennem det tidligere Østtyskland, og selvom det er ved at være mange år siden, at de to lande blev genforenet, kan man godt genkende levn fra de store landbrugskollektiver, når man passerer gennem landsbyer. Vi kørte via Magdeburg, Erfurt, Wurzburg og Stuttgart og først ved Villingen-Schwenningen drejede vi over mod Feldberg i retning mod Basel.
    I alt ca 765 km, og de sidste 50 km skifter landskabet, og pludselig er vi oppe i 1100 meters højde. Passepartout kan jo også ligeså godt begynde at komme i form! Vi overnatter på en tom parkering ved en skilift i Feldberg, Schwarzwald.

    Tag 2 // Am Ende der Kräfte

    September 5, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Am Ende standen 160km auf dem Tacho, bei etwas unter 8h Fahrtzeit und 10h Reisezeit ein echter Kraftakt. Aber das hatten wir ja so gewollt, auch wenn es an Ende nicht mehr für einen Blog Eintrag gereicht hat. Daher holen wir das heute morgen nach.
    Die Route führte uns an den Rhein bis Kehl wo eben diesen überquerten um in Straßburg an den Rhein-Rhone Kanal zu wechseln. Danach folgte ein 60km Anschnitt der nur geradeaus führte, immer am Kanal entlang. Durch die Bäume rechts und links konnten wir sowohl im Schatten als auch windgeschützt einige Kilometer absolvieren. Beim weiterhin vorherrschenden Südwind und strahlendem Sonnenschein durchaus angenehm.

    Ab Breisach hatten wir schlussendlich noch 20km auf Radwegen zum Etappenziel bevor wir bei Bratkartoffeln wieder Kräfte tanken konnten.

    Heute morgen regnet es etwas, soll aber bald besser werden, so dass wir uns beim Frühstück Zeit lassen werden um dann im Trockenen Richtung Feldberg auf zu brechen.

    Titesee

    July 20 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    From Strasbourg, we journeyed to Titisee, via Freiburg where we dropped our luggage. Titisee lake is at 840m above sea level surrounded by the beautiful trees of the Black Forest. The journey there took in numerous tree-covered valleys and was spectacular in itself. The town itself was a bit like a British seaside town - kitsch tat shops, hotels and bars galore.

    At the lake, we found a shady spot for lunch, before going for a brief splodge in the water! Walking around the north shore of the lake, it started to rain so we took the only reasonable decision and stopped for a pint.

    Hinterzarten, Pikenfelsen

    July 20 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Just 4 minutes by train, we stopped of at Hinterzarten. It looked to have some interesting sites of a gorge, a viaduct and some monuments, so we plotted a route and put on our hiking legs. And it was absolutely superb.

    The Black Forest itself was about half hour walk from the station, and from here we climbed up through the towering pines aiming for Pikenfelsen at 1040m. It was cooler than yesterday at around 28° and whilst it was hot in the sun, the trees lent shade and there was a welcome breeze. En route, we stopped at Berend's Bankje (Berend's bench) which gave us a sneak preview of the view from the top.

    The view at Pikenfelsen was unbelievable and very peaceful. The view point had some well-shaded benches and a beautiful lookout point (albeit on the other side of the fence!).

    From here, we traversed down the hill in the Ravenna Gorge through a series of steep, narrow switchbacks, flight led us far lower than our starting point. These brought us to the Ravenna viaduct, an almost 60m high train bridge through the gorge, rebuilt after destruction in WWII. We followed the Ravenna back up (bloody stairs!) passed a beautiful waterfall and an old watermill.

    Exiting the valley, and walking back to Hinterzarten town for a well deserved pint after 3 1/2 hours of hiking!

    Freiberg

    July 21 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After a chance to put our feet up, we wandered out into Freiburg. We ended up mostly shoe-shopping for B who broke both his walking shoes and his action sandals on the same day! The river was awash with people paddling in the stepped pools that ran down it, making it a super site to cool off in the 38° heat. We, however, went to the Ganter bar on the plaza around the cathedral and ordered a metre of beer! We were treated to the lovely church bells, an accordionist and a cellist during our drinks, before retiring to plan the next fews days.

    Beer Index (Freiburg) - €4.90/0.5l (including a flight)
