Things To Do

Seebach is ideally placed for exploring the Black Forest – here is a small selection of some places to go and things to see during your stay:

Sightseeing

Hiking/Walking

Seebach and the whole of the Black Forest is a haven for walkers, whether you are looking for a gentle stroll or a more strenuous hike. There are hundreds of kilometers of well marked paths for all abilities. We can lend you a walking map of the area and provide you with a packed lunch or you can stop off at one of the many 'Hütte' or 'Gasthofs' along the way for a hearty German lunch. On many of the walks you will find locally distilled schnapps chilling in the water troughs – there are glasses for you to use and you put your money in the box provided. Larger walking/hiking groups are also welcome.

For Motor Cyclists

We are 'Biker Friendly' and are situated just 5 minutes from the Schwarzwaldhochstraße, the famous B500. This is one of the most popular roads in Germany for motorcyclists due to its twists and turns and magnificent views. There are also many kilometers of other well maintained quiet roads – ideal for touring and getting off the beaten track. You will find plenty of places along the way for coffee and a slice of Black Forest Gateau! We have a warm room for drying out your clothes on a wet day and there are motorcycle repair garages in the area with English speaking staff.

For the motor enthusiast: Between 45 minutes & 2 hours away

Christmas Markets

From the end of November each year every town has a Christmas Market, some last for a couple of weeks and others last until Christmas and the New Year. The Christmas Markets are a sight to behold. They evoke memories of a traditional old fashioned Christmas - Glühwein (German mulled wine), roasted chestnuts and stalls selling wooden toys and christmas trees straight from the forest - fairy lights and, if you're lucky, maybe some snow. From Seebach you can experience the Christmas Markets of three countries – Germany, France and Switzerland. Please contact us for a list of some of the best Christmas Markets, along with their opening dates and approximate driving times.
