Map: Location of Schluchsee in the Black Forest

Information in brief


The community of Schluchsee is located on the lake of the same name in the highlands of the southern Black Forest. Lake Schluchsee offers a great many possibilities for water sports: sailing, wind-surfing, rowing, angling, sightseeing tours by boat and, of course, swimming.

But not only the lake is an attraction in itself. The community of Schluchsee is set in a beautiful location in the High Black Forest, and hikers, cyclists and mountain bikers get their full money's worth. There is also a lot on offer for winter sports enthusiasts, including a well prepared network of cross-country skiing tracks, a ski-lift and a children's ski-lift in the district of Fischbach, a toboggan run, snowshoeing, ice skating, and all this in the fresh Black Forest air at around 1,000 metres above sea level.
