Destination

The Southern Black Forest

The Southern Black Forest in the border triangle Germany, France and Switzerland with it's Breisgau area is on one hand the warmest region between the North Sea and the Alps, but is at the same time with it's 1,493m (4,480 ft) high Feldberg the highest of the lower mountain ranges in Germany. Although, the mountains are not solely covered by dark fir and spruce trees as the name Black Forest would let you presume. From large  high planes and parks and mountain tops with spectacular vistas you can enjoy excellent distant views. This is only one of the beautiful sides of the popular mountain range in Southwest Germany.

 

The Municipality Dachsberg

The municipality Dachsberg was created in 1971 from the then independent communities Urberg, Wittenschwand, Wolpadingen and Wilfingen and their more than 20 townships. The area name "Dachsberg", in use for centuries, became the name of the new municipality. Today, the municipality Dachsberg encompasses an area of 3,559 hectars and includes 1.406 residents.

 

Township Wittenschwand

The township Wittenschwand spreads out loosely over a wide high plain's basin at a average altitude of  940m (2,820ft). The surrounding moutnains are forested. Between the peaks, the scenery is dominated by fields and meadows. Especially charming strikes the convent pond visible from the township Horbach - it was established in the old days by the convent of St. Blasien as a fish pond. The Andreas chapel, formerly Jodokus chapel, built around 1630, belongs to the Protestant community of St. Blasien. After extensive renovationsin the 1990ies it is is especially well worth seeing.
